Thomas turned to me this weekend and asked if we could do a green smoothie detox for a few days to “reset”. I thought this was actually a great way to prep for the insanity that will be hundreds of vegan bloggers running around Portland this weekend at Vida Vegan Con 2013, eating everything in sight. Oh yes, it will be glorious.

We decided to do green smoothies along with raw food for variety. I decided to start out with a raw celery soup from Raw Food, but didn’t realize that I was running low on celery, so I tossed in a few carrots, extra tomato, some miso, garlic and a little bit of jalepeno and cayenne for kick. I love how flexible raw food is, and I love how full you can get on good fat like avocado.

Raw Vegan Veggie Soup

several stalks of celery, chopped into large pieces, about 2 c.
3 carrots, chopped large
3 small tomatoes, quartered
1 clove of garlic
handful of fresh parsley, about 1/2 c.
1 ripe avocado
1 c. filtered water
1 tbsp. of tamari (or shoyu or Bragg’s or red-sodium soy sauce)
1 tbsp. of lemon juice
1 tbsp. white miso, optional
1/4 fresh jalapeno
dash of cayenne pepper

Directions:

Add all ingredients to high speed blender and combine until warmed through and creamy. You’re done! 🙂

  • exactly! i got by with just my inherited 25 year old food processor for many years, but the high speed blender has been great. you can even make HOT soup with it, but the raw soups i keep to a warm level. smoothies though, there’s no comparison; it’s really night and day!

  • Would you believe I don’t have a blender? I’ll be buying one soon. I’ve wanted to make smoothies and hummus and now that I have this recipe, I have one more reason to start blending! Looks delish and I like that it’s raw. Perfect for summer when I don’t want to turn the stove on.

  • Say a little something?
