Raw Vegan Alkalising Green Soup Recipe

This is a basic raw vegan green soup that you can customise to your very own personal preference. I like to use spinach as my greens, but feel free to substitute weeds or your favourite greens if you wish. You can use more or less of tomato / cucumber / celery if you wish, add other vegetables like yellow bell pepper or courgette ; different seeds or even seed butter (nuts / nut butter for a non nut-free soup). The Spirulina is packed with nutrition : vitamins, minerals, protein, iron, beta-carotene, antioxidants and even essential fatty acids ! And because it is so rich in Chlorophyll, it is a great superfood to add to your diets if you don't consistently eat (or drink) your greens. But the soup is absolutely delicious without it too. Great for a light and refreshing lunch or snack, or as a starter. And you will be surprised, but many children actually love it !

Method

  • Prepare your vegetables for the blender : halve the avocado and scoop the flesh out ; roughly chop the tomato, cucumber, celery, spinach and fresh herbs. Peel the garlic cloves, juice the lemon or lime and grate the ginger if you are not using a high powered blender. If using, deseed the fresh chilli for less heat.
  • Place all ingredients in your blender, along with 1 cup or 250 ml water. Start blending, then add the remaining water and blend until smooth, adding more water if needed to reach your desired consistency. If using spirulina crunches, leave them out and top the soup with them right before serving.
  • Serve as is or garnished with the spirulina crunchies, cubed cucumber, a few extra seeds and extra fresh herbs.
