What's in it

Ingredients

One head of organic romaine lettuce
Large handful of organic baby spinach
1 organic cucumber, peeled, cut into smaller chunks
1 organic avocado
Leaves from several sprigs of Thyme
small handful of fresh cilantro leaves
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 organic lemon, peeled and quartered
1 organic apple (any variety), quartered and seeds removed
1 cup of your favorite sprouts (sunflower, alfalfa, radish, etc.)
3/4 cup organic cherry tomatoes
a few small pieces of dried dulse, (optional)
1-1/2 cups of purified water

How to cook it

Directions

  • Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed, scoop out the flesh, and add it to your blender. Top with the remaining ingredients (tomatoes, cucumber, romaine, spinach, apple pieces, lemon, sprouts, garlic, thyme, dulse and the purified water). Pulse several times, incorporating the ingredients and then blend for a couple of minutes at the highest setting until everything is well blended and creamy.
  • Pour into your favorite soup bowls, garnish with some fresh herbs and enjoy right away. It is a wonderfully tasty and delicious alternative to regular soup, and of a slightly heavier consistency than green smoothies. If you enjoy this soup, or green smoothies, also plan on growing some of the vegetables in your own garden this Spring and Summer.
