  • 2-3 English cucumbers, juiced (no pulp)
  • 1-2 Cups Fresh Silky Almond Milk (see Milks page)

Creamy or Crunchy Broccoli Soup

This high-protein soup is a must for broccoli lovers! And it takes just 15 minutes to prepare.

Sauteed Edamame Vegetable Soup

Serves 6-8

  • 1 Tbs grape seed oil
  • 3 large tomatoes, cored and quartered
  • 1 large onion, sliced

  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 quarts veggie broth
  • 3 large sprigs parsley
  • 3/4 tsp dried tyme

Whole pure salts (mineral or Celtic Sea salts), to taste

1 (10 oz) pkg. edamame beans (found in frozen section of grocery store)

Heat the oil in the bottom of a soup pot over high heat. Add the tomatoes, onion, red pepper, carrot, and garlic. Saute until the vegetables are a deep golden brown, about 15 minutes. Then take about half of those veggies out of the pan, chop fine, and set aside.

Add the veggie broth, parsley, and thyme to the remaining vegetables, heat to boil, cover, turn the heat down, and simmer for about 10 more minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.

Working in batches, place the soup into a Vita-Mix or any blender and puree. Transfer to a strainer set over a bowl. Pour the puree through the strainer, coaxing the liquid into the bowl. Discard the solids left in the strainer and return the silky broth and the remaining chopped vegetables to the soup pot. This broth should be a beautiful orange color. Add salt to taste at this point. I add a teaspoon. Add the edamame beans and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes longer.

Popeye Soup

Serves 4-6

  • Fresh lime juice, to taste
  • 4 spearmint leaves, for garnish

In a Vita-Mix or blender, add the avocado and half the water or stock. Pure, then add the rest of the ingredients (except the spearmint leaves) one at a time, blending to your desired thickness and thinning with the remaining water if desired. Add salt to taste, and flavor with spices and lime juice as desired. You might add a couple of minced sun-dried tomatoes, too, Experiment! Also, this soup is good while on the liquid cleanse.

Warming options: This soup can be served warm or cold. If you’re blending in a Vita-Mix, the longer you blend, the warmer the soup will get. If you do not have a Vita-Mix, you can carefully warm the soup (not cook it) in an electric stovetop skillet over low heat. Warm the soup only until you can hold your finger in it without having to pull it out. This will keep the food at about 118 degrees, which will keep the food warm but uncooked. Serve with spearmint leaves on top. Enjoy!
