I was inspired to first create this recipe while on my trip to Turkey last year where I enjoyed a lot of veggies, like arugula salad, hummus, veggies casseroles and more. I made this recipe very recently, which is why it was top of my mind…
Whether you went off track–or didn’t–here is a really easy, healthy recipe I wanted to share with you that will be great to make this week. It’s the Glowing Green Soup (GGSo), and it’s the savory sister to our beloved GGS. 🙂
I posted a Youtube video of making this this past winter, but I wanted to bring it up again to show how versatile this recipe is.
- 1 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
- 3 cups baby spinach
- 2 cups tomatoes rough chopped
- ½ cup zucchini chopped
- 1 Tbs. purple onion
- 2 Tbs. nutritional yeast
- ¼ tsp. sea salt or to taste
- Avocado for topping
- Sprouts or microgreens for topping
- Cayenne pepper for topping
- Blend everything together, retaining some texture (do not blend as silky as the GGS, unless you really don't like any chunks at al!). Top with the avocado and sprouts, and enjoy!
This soup is also the perfect accompaniment for the common cold. Learn how get rid of a cold fast!
Be creative with this soup, and show us your pics and your share your ideas with the community!
Have a great day and happy GGSo-ing :).
I’ve noticed you travel with the Vita Mix blender. I currently living in Europe and would like to know (if you use one) what kind of transformer and wattage you use for the Vita Mix blender. I would love to continue using my Vita Mix but I haven’t heard very reassuring stories with using transformers and appliances here and would rather not have to spend so much on an European blender.
Amazon UK sells Vitamix blenders for use in Europe. Check our their website ; )
YUMMM I have a feeling that I will LOVE this!
Amazing, Lindsay! Thank you 🙂
I did mine 🙂 How are we supposed to share our assignments with you?
Email Katelyn, our community manager – beautydetoxgirl (@) gmail dot com – and she’ll make note!
What happens if I missed the first assignments?
It looks good!
I added red capsicum, rocket leaves, chilli flakes and a can of unsweetened chickpeas to my GGSo today. It’s super filling and very satisfying.
What about some form of citrus in the soup to aid Iron absorption ?
Hi Ashira! You could certainly add in a squeeze of lemon for a citrus boost – yum! xx
