I developed this recipe together with an ex-boyfriend, on a rainy day in Costa Rica some years ago. It's so great, it really stuck with me (the soup, not the boyfriend) and now it's my favorite raw dish. Sometimes when you're raw, you want warm things in your belly! And when you’re in Costa Rica and realize you’ve been wearing your woolly socks for three days straight, warm food is particularly nice. This soup is great; delicious, filling, and so beautifully green you’ll want to take a picture of it to keep in your wallet. Really. The trick is to start small, add your ingredients, try it, taste it, add a little more… Until you get the perfect balance. You’ll know when you get it right. Basically you can use any green vegetables, but be very careful with garlic and onion (as with any raw recipe - when its blended like this without being cooked, onion will go super mutant onion on you and you’ll get crappy onion soup instead of avocado soup. Plus no one will want to hang out with you for the rest of the day and that sucks.). Anyway, this is how you do it:
Raw Avocado Soup
Avocado, baby spinach (always use organic!!), broccoli, water, bell pepper, salt, pepper.
