“Cream” of bRAWcoli

April 24th, 2012

 

I have been trying to create a delicious raw soup, and I have found one that I love. This raw “cream” of broccoli soup is delicious, and it is yet another way for me to use cashew cheeze! It tastes just like the real thing. And it’s completely raw, vegan, and acceptable on the Clean program!

 

Ingredients:

1/2 c. cashews (pre-soaked overnight)

1 head of broccoli

1/2 avocado

1 tbsp fresh chives

1 small garlic clove

1 c. distilled water

Cumin, salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

 

Instructions:

 

Drain the water from the soaked cashews. Place the cashews in the food processor and process until they have the consistency of ricotta.

 

 

While processing the cashews to make the “cream”, chop the broccoli into florets and remove the stalks. Chop up the chives, peel and slice the avocado, and peel and chop the garlic. Add florets, avocado, garlic, and chives to processor.

 

 

Process ingredients until smooth, adding water as needed. I found that I had to use about a half cup of water. Once it is smooth, add water to reach your desired consistency.

 

Add spices to taste. Garnish with parsley and serve. Delicious!

 

Makes 2 servings.
