Sometimes I create short cuts to get a quick soup, which fills you up and is super healthy too.
It took two minutes to make and it's really nourishing.
Why it's not raw? The soup base is a store bought juice, which is pasteurized, therefore not raw! Of course that can be done fully raw too...
My base is Knudsen's Veggie juice (low salt) 1cup
and then I added 1/2 fresh red bell pepper,
1/2 fresh cucumber (about 5")
1 handful of fresh basil leaves
1 fresh avocado
1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
Pulse a few times in your blender or food processor until desired texture, and serve into bowl.
Cut up remaining 1/2 bell pepper, garnish with basil leave and sprinkle some raw seeds on it. Sunflower and pumpkin seeds are just the ticket!
The variations are endless, substitute or add things like fresh kale, carrots, celery, spinach, tomatoes, herbs...or sprinkle dried kale leaves over it.
