When I crave something creamy, yet healthy, I love to whip up a quick raw soup using
avocado, seeds or nuts to provide a creamy consistency.
This light, savory and slightly spicy raw soup is perfect for lunch or dinner.
I like to serve it with a fresh, crispy salad and raw, dehydrated flax crackers.
The fresh, organic ingredients in this healthy whole food soup provide important nutrients,
vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and fiber.
And best of all, it’s ready to enjoy in minutes.
All you need is a high-speed blender and a dream!

1/2 small onion, chopped

1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric

Sometimes I top my soup with other vegetables depending upon what I have
on hand or have a taste for, including:
* soaked sundried tomato bits
*chopped sweet red pepper
I prefer to eat these fresh raw soups immediately after making them for
optimal taste and vitality.
