Raw Hummus and Earth Soup

The hummus is made of soaked organic chickpeas (overnight) with lemon juice, sea salt, garlic, black pepper, smoked paprika, olive oil, hulled sesame seeds, cashews, rice milk, and filtered water. All ingredients blended to smooth (in Vitamix), topped with olive oil, smoked paprika, black pepper, and sea salt.

The following soup was a play on borscht. I had golden beets and potatoes in the fridge and wanted to use the soup function on Vitamix. So here’s all I threw in:

And the result is this:

Grounding. I call it Earth Soup. Not quite borscht, haha, but very tasty. The soup can be strained after blending (in a chinois, for example) to remove any sediment. (list of ingredients: shallot, potato, garlic, sea salt, black pepper, golden beets, basil, dill, filtered water, coconut milk, organic tamari, and olive oil)

A New Breakfast Paradigm.

This is the next level for me in terms of breakfast nutrition. Does this look appetizing to you? :p Here’s what’s inside:

Blended fresh “power greens” (kale, chard, spinach), raw cacao, flaxseeds, dates, wild blueberries, frozen banana, and fresh almond milk….. All that, integrated into oat bran.

How can you create food full of greens which you enjoy eating first thing in the morning?
