Raw soups are truely one of the easiest dishes to prepare! Blended soups are like savory smoothies, ready in 5 minutes. I wanted to make a soup with a little more texture, in this borscht I have added shredded veggies, the base is made of a veggies juice and it is blended up with zucchini. You can also add in a little fat like avocado or hemp seeds to make it more creamier.
The soup base of the borscht is made of a veggie juice, a mix of the following,
1/2 cup carrot juice
1/4 cup beet juice
1/4 cup cucumber juice
1/4 cup ce;ery juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
pink salt to taste, optional
Don’t stress about the exact measurements. Blen the juice with 1 cup of zucchini cubes until creamy. This makes the soup thicker. For even more creaminess add 1/2 small avocado or 2 Tbsp. hemp seeds. I blend the avo only at the end this keeps it nice and creamy instead of frothy.
The filling is made of,
1/2 cup shredded beet
1/2 cup shredded cucumber
1 tomato, diced
1/4 cup red bell pepper, shredded
2 tbsp. parsleu
broccoli baby greens
chili flakes and a dash of cumin on top
I added the veggies to my bowl and poured the soup on it, sprinkled it with chili flakes, baby sprouts and a little cumin powder. I love the crunch the shredded vegetables add. It is sweet, spicey, earthy … delicious! Njoy!
