1 Year. 481 Recipes. 1 ambitious mama.
Days 38-53

Dulse and Tomato Soup
My focus was on the vegetable soups this time from pages 41 to 43. Soups are an under appreciated art form in cooked and raw food. They are so simple, that they are easily overlooked. All you need is a good knife and a blender.
The above photo is of Dulse and Tomato Soup.
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup onion
3 tomatoes
3/4 cup dulse
1/4 cup chives
Blend everything except the chives (which I did by mistake...it still tasted good :-)
Cream of Broccoli Soup
1 cup broccoli
1/2 avocado
1 clove garlic
1 cup alfalfa sprouts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tsp. sea kelp
1/2 to 1 cup water or rejuvelac (I used 1 cup of rejuvelac)
blend, add the avocado last.

Sweet Potato Soup

1 sweet potato
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup carrot juice
pinch of nutmeg, kelp, cayenne
Put the sweet potato in a glass jar and place in hot water until it softens the starch into sugar. Cut, peel and blend with other ingredients.

Okay, I had no idea when the starch would soften into sugar. I kept my potato in hot water (replacing a few times a day) for 2 days. Then I made the soup. It is a light, and lively soup that digests easily.

I also made:
avocado chowder
corn chowder
sweet corn chowder
cream of soups
cream of artichokes
cream of spinach
pea soup
asparagus soup
cucumber soup
veggie soup
quick soup
sprouted bean soup
string bean soup
celery soup
oh my God soup
gazpacho orange
gazpacho rainbow
simple tomato
avocado soup
chlorophyll soup

I think I've lost 5 pounds just eating all this soup! Up next are the fruit soups and salads.
