Alissa Cohen's Broccoli Soup (Raw Foods)

"I found this posted on "The cumin and sea salt are very important in this recipe, so make sure you have added enough of both of these to bring out the flavor of this soup." The original recipe called for almonds instead of cashews. This was so good I had two bowls!"

    Just finished scraping the remnants of this wonderful soup off the bowl. Can't be beat for flavor, simplicity of preparation and flexibility. I used soaked almonds because that is what I had on hand and followed the rest as written. DH and I LOVED it! Served with sprouted grain bread. We're stuffed. Thank you for posting, mliss29! UPDATE: In making this soup again, I changed the method slightly: First I loaded all ingredients except the broccoli in the Vita Mix and blended til smooth. The broccoli went in last for about 2-3 seconds. This way DH had some 'stock' in his soup. He's a happy camper, and that's a good thing! ;)

    I was a bit nervous trying this, but it was actually very good! I topped it with sprouts, as another review suggested. Would omit the oil next time, or at least decrease by half. Thank you for posting this!!

    Yum. This is very tasty. I didn't have cashews, so used almonds as you said the original recipe had them. This was a thick, filling bowl of soup for my lunch, gobbled down quickly! I might next time add a fresh lime wedge alongside each serving to drizzle on top. Just fantastic. Thanks, mliss29!

    I've never made anything like this - I loved it!! My food processor wasn't big enough to do it all at once, so I ended up doing two batches. I did not add any oil. This recipe is wonderful in the summer and I'll be making again once the broccoli is ready in my garden.

    This is really good. I used sunflower seeds instead of cashews. I also added juice from half a lemon and a tablespoon of nutritional yeast. I also used two cloves of garlic cause I really love it, but I forgot how strong it can be when you pulverize it in the blender. Stick with 1 or less cloves of garlic. It'll get stronger after it sits for a bit, too.

    This was sooo good! I meant to make a half batch but accidentally used the whole avocado, so I just doubled everything else; but I'm GLAD of that mistake! It's nice and versatile: instead of all cashews (didn't have enough) I used 1/2 cup plus a handful of almonds. I also omitted the oil and used extra cumin, but less sea salt- I think a full tsp. would be awfully salty. It's so quick and easy. Even my mom, who's been feeling ill and not eating, said "yum, yum and yum!" So it's a keeper! Thank you!
