Raw Cauliflower Soup

Time for some tasty raw soup. I highly recommend using a Vitamix; however, a high-speed blender will work as well. By this point in your cleanse, you might want a little something warm in your tummy, so I definitely recommend the extra step of heating this up a bit on the stove. Food is still considered raw as long as it is not heated above 115°F (50°C). Above this temperature, the vegetables start losing nutrients to the heat.

Ingredients

1/4 cup (35g) pine nuts

1 cup (235ml) water

1/2 head of cauliflower, cut up into florets

1 garlic clove

1/4 sweet onion

1 to 2 tsp Italian spice

2 to 3 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Parsley leaves, to garnish

Directions

1. Place the pine nuts and water in the Vitamix or high-speed blender, and run on High for a minute or two to create a creamy base.

2. Add the cauliflower florets, garlic, and onion. Blend until the texture is smooth.

3. Add the Italian spice and olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
