Green Gazpacho Recipe
« on: July 11, 2009, 06:10:27 PM »
Hello everyone - this is a wonderful Green Gazpacho that is yummy and a very cleansing food.  I got this from the May/June 20o8 issue of Pilate's Style magazine, and the comments written in the magazine about the recipe are:  The glutathione in the asparagus, spinach and avocado helps remove fat-soluble toxins; onions enhance sulfation to make toxins easier to excrete; and fresh ginger promotes bile secretion, to assist in toxin removal. 

Serves 4

1 cup thin asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup vegetable broth (Bauman Broth would be great to use in this recipe)
1/2 cup baby spinach
1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup cucumber peeled, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley (mint, cilantro, or basil)
1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt to taste

1.  Puree asparagus with 1/2 cup vegetable broth in a food processor.
2.  Add spinach, avocado, cucumber, 1/4 cup onion, 2 Tbs. parsley, ginger, and the remainder of the broth.  Process until smooth.  Add the water a little at a time, until the soup is a desired consistency.  Pulse in lemon juice and olive oil.  Season with sea salt to taste.
3.  Serve immediately or chill.  Garnish with remaining onions and parsley. 

Enjoy!!! Bon Appetit!!!
