I whipped up a perfect recipe to conclude [or continue ] our 3-Day Raw Food Detox/Cleanse with. Hubby and I licked our plates clean–it was delicious ; and it takes only minutes to make!
If you are just catching up with us, and not sure what Cleanse I am talking about, read these posts first:
Avocado & Corn Bisque Vegan Recipe
makes 3 servings
- 2 cups almond milk [you can use other plant milk as well]
- 1 ripe avocado, deseeded
- 2 cups fresh or frozen* corn
- 1 small clove of garlic
- white ends of 4 green onion springs
- Himalayan or sea salt to taste
- Dash of your favorite seasoning
- 6 tbsp chopped green onions
- 1 medium size ripe tomato, diced
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds for garnish [optional, as shown below]
- Place milk, avocado [spoon it out], corn*, garlic and onion ends, along with salt into a high speed blender [I use Vitamix 5200]
- Start increasing speed slowly, raising it to 10, then going high [if using Vitamix 5200; otherwise increase blending speed gradually, especially if using frozen corn*]
- Blend until mixture is smooth
- Transfer into bowls, and garnish with tomatoes, onions, and seasoning; for a crunch, especially if you are on a raw detox, sprinkle with 3-4 tbsp of sunflower seeds–it will add a beautiful texture
*if using frozen corn, add it slowly, 1/2 cup at a time, and run your blender a bit longer to defrost it
If you are making this bisque [soup] while coming off an all-raw detox, it can be accompanied by your choice of freshly baked, whole grain organic bread. [Can you taste the deliciousness?!]
Enjoy it! It is that good!
I have been in the kitchen for the last couple of days, creating recipes that are not only vegan and healthy, but are also approved for those who are fighting cancer, which means they are fat free and 100% unprocessed, as well as being low on sodium.
Yesterday I whipped up a very quick lunch for myself, since I have been dedicating time to raise funds/supplies for Gary and Fay to fight cancer. It turned out very delicious.
Raw Vegan Tomato Soup Recipe
- 3/4-1 1/2 cup coconut water, or filtered water [depends on how thick you would like your soup]
- 4 large Roma tomatoes, quartered
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 3 tbsp fresh cilantro
- 2-3 tbsp fresh dill
- 1/3 cup of sunflower seeds [presoaked] or cashews [presoaked]*; you can also substitute this with a ripe avocado
- Himalayan or sea salt to taste**
*cancer patients should stay away from using too much/or any nuts until they can get their condition under control
**cancer patients should try to reduce their salt intake as much as possible
- Place all ingredients into a high speed blender, such as a super Vitamix 5200, and blend until smooth.
I served my soup with a slice of freshly homemade, whole wheat bread, however those who are fighting cancer should stay away from bread for a while. I heard that Gerson Therapy approves small portions of rye bread made without salt, though.
Fund raiser for Gary and Fay continues. Please visit Beating Cancer Naturally with Your Help to see if you can help.
Today I am kicking off a new category, which I hope will become a regular on Vegalicious–I will be sharing a recipe with my readers that was sent to me by one of Vegalicious readers. Yes, one of our own–Maria Daskalova!
The recipe looks delicious, and I cannot wait to make it myself. It is Maria’s first recipe, so I am excited for her!
Make it, eat it, and let me and Maria know how you liked it by leaving a comment under this post.
