If you’re looking for the greenest St Patrick’s Day lunch around, try Derek’s Raw Broccoli Soup recipe!
Why Broccoli? Why not. As a Health & Fitness coach, I try to set a good example and tend to break the tradition of eating junk food on holidays and instead eat healthy for every celebration. You’d be surprised how great you’ll feel after celebrating with healthful and raw plant-based foods for a change. Most holiday meals make us feel stuffed, tired, and full of belly aches. Nothing is more fun than trying a new recipe, loving the flavor, and feeling full of energy!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3-4 large broccoli florets
- 2-3 large cloves of garlic
- 1/2-3/4 cup of almonds
- 1/8-1/4 cup water
- salt and pepper to taste
In a vitamix or food processor, add the almonds with 1/8 cup water to make a “milk”. Then add the garlic cloves and blend til completely smooth. Chop broccoli into smaller chunks so they will blend well in the vitamix. Add broccoli to almond milk mixture. Blend until completely smooth and creamy. Add water as needed to desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy your raw broccoli soup!!
