General Health Soup - Raw #11
Raw Gazpacho Soup
- 4 medium tomatoes (preferably Campari-Eurofresh-these taste amazing) or cherry tomatoes (more skin)
- a few baby carrots
- 1/8 cabbage or broccoli (but cabbage tastes so much better in my opinion)
- 1-2tsp olive oil
- optional - add also 1/4 avocado
Blend first the tomatoes and the cucumber, This creates a juicy base. Then add the remaining ingredients. Then you can also add per taste or substitute as you wish: onion, garlic, celery, spinach, broccoli, etc. Some people like to add a green apple, you may also choose to add flax seeds. Blend and serve.
Notes: You could also add fresh herbs such as parsley, oregano, basil or mint as well. These herbs are particularly rich in plant antioxidant flavones and flavonols such as apigenin, carnosol, and essential oils known to promote anti-inflammatory and digestive function and may have anti-cancer properties. And if you like you can add fresh garlic or a little cayenne to spice it up. Traditional gazpacho is made with the addition of lemon juice which can also be included.
