Raw Cream of Spinach Soup

Serves 6
by Tenina Holder

Raw Soup? Isn’t that just a green smoothie? NOPE. Seriously, if you are not into raw food, at least give this one a whirl and worst case scenario if you can't do a cold soup, use it as a salad dressing. It is DIVINE...if I say so myself (oh, and don't scrimp on the blending. It is completely necessary). I am all about the flavour and texture when it comes to something I am swallowing, and I have gagged on some ‘drinks’ from a thermomix before now...but this soup is silky, smooth and completely amazing. But don’t take my word for it. Start your engines....

(And a bit of good news, this recipe appears in Souperbowl the ebook, shortly to become Souperbowl the Realbook, so watch this space!!)
