This spicy soup is as delicious as it is satisfying! Try it as an entree with some raw bread, or a salad.
Makes 3 cups, serves 3-4
2 cups carrot juice
1 large avocado (save a bit for the garnish)
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ jalapeño pepper
½ teaspoon chopped garlic
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
5 mint leaves
15 large basil leaves
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon olive oil
Place all ingredients in your blender. Purée until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
Pour into three or four bowls, and garnish with a mint leaf or a thin slice of avocado.
Note: to gently warm this soup, simply blend a little longer. The friction alone will create heat.
