Raw "Soup"er Suppers

          Great Green Soup

          4 medium bok choy
          2 stalks celery
          6 stems parsley
          4 baby yellow tomatoes
          1 chunk ginger
          2 cloves garlic
          2 teaspoons spirulina
          1 tablespoon olive oil
          2 cups water sea salt

Blend all ingredients and eat/drink. A very pleasant flavored blend.


And now for another kind of soup, a kind that is vitamin rich and is for boosting the immune system - Immuno "Soup"er Booster!

Rose hips are one of the highest foods on the planet for obtaining vitamin C, third only to the Kakadu plum and the Barbados cherry. They are also rich in vitamin A, as well as more than moderate amounts of calcium, riboflavin, vitamins E and K, potassium, magnesium and manganese (for more info). Parsley is rich in B vitamins, and ginger and garlic stimulate the nervous system while protecting it with their natural anti-fungals. With the addition of brown rice, this bowl of goodness is a complete meal. Blend all ingredients until smooth for a thick and hearty blend.

Immuno "Soup"er Booster (almost raw)
An immune-booster & a complete meal

2/3 cup cooked brown rice
1 1/2 tablespoons rosehips, reconstituted 8 hrs in 1/2 cup water
2 stalks celery
several stems parsley
2 cloves garlic
1 chunk ginger
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lime/lemon (w/ zest, optional)
sea salt

"Swamp Water" dedicated to my friend :)
          Tangy "Swamp" Water
2 cups water
6-7 mustard leaves
5-6 white kale leaves
1 cucumber, peeled
1 chunk ginger
1 thin wedge onion
2 cloves garlic
1+ tablespoon lemon juice
1+ tablespoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
sea salt
Blend all ingredients and drink. This could be made thicker by using less water, some cabbage or adding a small handful of nuts. However, if nuts are added, then blend them first and with less water to make them as fine as possible. This drinkable soup supper is delightfully tangy.
