This is my anti-dote to the holidays with all their sweets, drinks, and, cold, short days. You put ten ingredients in a blender, puree, and then decide if you’d like to enjoy the soup hot or cold. In winter, I like the gently heated option, but keep in mind, this this is also a fantastic summer soup when served chilled. It’s a potent jolt of alkalizing vegetables and herbs, with some staying power thanks to the fat in the silky coconut cream, and the protein-rich split green peas. Serve topped with whatever herbs, sprouts, or nuts you might have on hand, or simply straight and green.
A few considerations – in winter, heat the soup gently. Just shy of a simmer. And just before serving. This will help maintain the beneficial qualities of the miso, and more of the alkalizing power of the greens.
Happy holidays everyone. I’ll post some more clean eating favorites to the front page in the coming days & weeks for new year inspiration.
