A Great Detox Soup!

Tomato & Basil Soup As much as I love raw soups, I don’t really like them cold, especially in the wintertime. What I usually do is warm them gently on the stove, stirring constantly so as not to overheat (and therefore kill) the enzymes. An alternative would be to pop your soup in the D, although the stove method is what works best for me.

Here is a great detox soup that works well when doing a cleanse or for a  a quick nutritious lunch or dinner. It boast more flavor than your average tomato basil soup because  we’ve  add more healthy natural organic  ingredients like cashews, celery & carrot.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups room temperature pure water
  • 3 whole roma tomatoes
  • 1 shallot/spring onion (with root)
  • 1 stick celery
  • 1/2 carrot
  • 1 handful cabbage
  • 1/4 red capsicum
  • 1-2 handfuls raw cashews (soak for two hours prior)
  • 1 handful basil (with stalk)
  • 1 garlic clove ( I usually do more, garlic is so medicinal)
  • 1 organic non MSG vegetable bouillon (see what I like here)

Optional Accessories

  • 1 small slice ginger (with peel, about the size of two US quarters)
  • 1/4 jalapeno (with stem and seeds)
  • Garnish with some thin slices of red capsicum and basil leaves

Optional Chunky Style (blend on Variable 6 for 10 seconds)

  • 1/2 tomato
  • 1 handful basil

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Select Variable 1. Turn the machine on and slowly increase the speed to 10, then to High.
  3. Use tamper to press the ingredients into the blades if required.
  4. Blend for 4-6 minutes or until soup reaches desired temperature.

Notes If using hot water run for only 1-2 minutes. Raw Foodists like to only heat their soup to about 45 degrees so no enzymes are lost. This recipe can be reduced by half and made in small containers.
