I’m so happy tomorrow is Friday, I’m looking forward to rest and fun after this work week. And catching up on laundry, eek! Miko has been cuddling up to hubby a lot this week looking for play time, he gets restless and bored with us working all day.
I wish I could take Miko to work, that would be awesome! Mandatory dog walk breaks and a sweet lap buddy to ease stress. For now lots of green veggies are great for dealing with stress and this is a raw vegan superfood green soup with broccoli, garlic, and spinach. It’s savory, creamy, rich, and hearty. Also a beautifully vibrant green color.
Super Broccoli Soup
- 1/4 cup shelled hemp seeds
- 1 cup chopped broccoli
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 tbsp. of nutritional yeast
- 1/4 tsp. thyme
- 1 cup spinach leaves
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 cup water, as needed
- salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 1-2 servings.
Raw soups are sort of an acquired taste, I was not into them when I first started getting into raw because they seemed like barely satisfying cold smoothie bowls. But after trying different recipes, I appreciate them more for being a fun, veggie loaded side dish that’s easy on the digestive system.
It has a fresh savory broccoli flavor with a garlic oomph in a creamy and whipped texture.
And, again, I just love the bright green color – so vigorous.
Many have been asking what I’d do with it. Hubby grabbed it to make a vegan version of a pasta “toona” comfort dish with brown rice pasta.
The contents of the can didn’t look too appetizing – like cat food packed in oil.
And while it doesn’t taste horrible, I prefer the raw vegan version with sunflower seeds. But his dish came out very pretty, hearty, and tasty.
Always sexy when a man experiments with a vegan recipe!
