This is a recipe I made up for when we were doing a reboot and my daughters wanted some soup. If you have been juicing all day or taking enzymes like Phyto Bio Forte and Digestion Specialist, then everything does not have to be raw. The enzymes will unlock the nutrients in this soup.
2 large stalks of broccoli – one used raw and the other sauteed
3 garlic cloves – sliced or minced fine
veggie spray for the pan or a tsp olive oil, if needed.
1 cup spinach (more or less to your taste)
1/2 red pepper
1/4 – 1/2 medium onion – any kind.
1/4 fresh parsley
1/2 tsp celery seed – optional (This is like Dong Quai in its makeup so use it often.)
nutritional yeast – optional. Can give it a cheesy taste.
4 cherry or grape tomatoes
1/2 sweet potato – peeled and cut very small. optional
Spray a non stick pan and saute’ the garlic, pepper and onion if you want. Add the spinach when done.
In 2 cups water bring 1 stalk of broccoli to boil and simmer about 3 minutes. Turn the heat off and put 2 cups of the broccoli/water mix into a food processor. Process until as smooth as possible with the saute’ mix, the other raw broccoli stalk, tomatoes and celery seasoning (sweet potato if you are including that too.
Add it all back to the rest of the broccoli and water.
Enjoy with nutritional yeast on the top if you’d like. It is very good but even better when you have become used to green juicing.
This recipe is 1/2 raw and 1/2 gently cooked but packed with nutrients. Sauteing will bring out the flavors of the soup more.
This soup is loaded with calcium which is important to the Infertility Diet, is a mostly raw soup, is a heart healthy soup and supplies a good amount of green to your diet.
