Creamy Cucumber Soup

February 5, 2008 at 1:50 am 2 comments


This is a refreshing, raw soup with a savory flavor. I served it up with sprouted bread topped with hummus. This recipe makes quite a bit…3-4 cups (full blender)…so if it’s just you, you might want to cut it in half. I found this on Gone Raw…here is another version of cucumber soup to try as well.

  • 2 large cucumbers, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup of freshly juiced celery juice
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup olive oil (since there was already an avocado in it, I just used a splash)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon Nama Shoyu (or soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon Apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar or yacon syrup
  • 1 tablespoon mesquite powder, optional
  • Celtic sea salt, to taste
  • chives, chopped for topping

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Top with with scallions, cilantro, tomatoes, sprouts, and/or more avocado….yum yum!

    Sara,
    You are doing really well with Raw Foods! Go You! I sent you that book today and now I am wondering if you want me to send you Victoria Boutenko’s book “12 Steps to Raw Foods: How to End Your Dependency on Cooked Food.” It’s the revised and expanded edition. And if you haven’t already read it you will enjoy. It is amazing! I will be glad to send it if you think you would be interested. Let me know how much longer you will be at this address.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
