Raw Vegetable Soups

Some people prefer to eat a mostly raw diet.  I'm talking about veggies, not meat.  Raw soups are simple and nutritious.  Enjoy!

Creamy Red Pepper Soup

1 red pepper
1 cup warm water
½ large avocado
5 baby carrots
¼ cup hemp seeds
1 tsp. onion, chopped
½ tsp. garlic, chopped
1 tsp. raw honey
½ tsp. jalapeño pepper
½ tsp. Celtic Sea Salt®

Blend all ingredients for about 5-10 minutes until thick, smooth, and slightly warm.

Vegetable Soup

1 cucumber
1 young coconut water
½ bell pepper
½ avocado
2 celery ribs
3 green onions
2 large chard leaves (or 4 small)
1 tomato (for garnish)
Juice from 1 lime
Small combination of herbs  (suggestions include cilantro, mint, and rosemary)
Small portion of Dulse seaweed (optional)

In a blender combine the coconut water, 1/2 cucumber, avocado, celery, chard leaves, one green onion, lime juice, cayenne pepper, and seaweed. Blend on high. Next add the bell pepper, the rest of the cucumber, two remaining green onions, and the herbs. Pulse until herbs are chopped up. Garnish the soup with avocado, tomato, green onion, fresh herbs, and bell pepper.
