Broccoli Soup - Raw
We'd like to try and incorporate some Raw dishes into our diet other than the smoothies we make daily but when we flip through Raw specific cookbooks, it all looks a bit intimidating. So we thought we'd start with simple soups first and work our way up to more difficult recipes. When we were in New York, we went to a fantastic restaurant called Pure Food and Wine - http://www.oneluckyduck.com/purefoodandwine/.
If you are ever in NYC, this is a great place to try out, it’s definitely not hippy/earthy!
Broccoli Soup (Live Raw by Mimi Kirk)
2 cups almond or cashew milk
2 cups broccoli, broken into florets
1 avocado, cut in chunks
1 tablespoon onion
1 clove garlic
1/2 stalk celery, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoons cumin
sea salt to taste
Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Refrigerate for 2 hours to meld ingredients. Warm in double boiler, or a pot on the stove, stirring constantly. Do not overheat to retain the enzymes. Warm as in baby-bottle warm.
