Spicy Garden Soup

Spicy Garden Soup

I trust that you all had a nice St. Patrick’s Day. Whether you celebrated by wearing green, tossing back a green beer green smoothie, eating green eggs and ham, or reflecting on the life and mission of St. Patrick, I hope it was a good day.

I also hope you got in your greens! I’ve been using St. Patrick’s week as an excuse to come up with new green recipes. I have a new garden soup to share with you. This soup started as a chunky gazpacho, but with the power of the Vitamix this soup became as creamy as a pudding in just a few extra seconds. After a quick taste test, I decided that I liked it that way. Garnished with a few cooling toppings, this spicy garden soup made a wonderful lunch for several days.

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
