Yesterday my son and I were HUNGRY but had a pretty bad selection of fresh food to eat. I figured either we skip lunch and make a trek to the grocery store OR we get creative.
So...creative I got!
I found the following in the fridge:
carrot juice (fresh that I had in fridge)
a jalapeno that I had forgotten about
some fresh ginger root
½ an avocado
So, I put the carrot juice and red bell pepper and avocado in the Cuisinart and blended it up. Added nama shoyu, a little sea salt, just a dash of lemon, 1 clove garlic, small piece of ginger and ½ a jalapeno. Blended until very smooth.
Then I strained out any leftover pepper or ginger chunks with a strainer.
After that I put the rest of the lemons in my blender with white miso, cashews, nutritional yeast and nama shoyu. I blended until smooth. Adding water to thin it out. THEN, I strained that as well.
I poured a little of the cream on top of the soup - and there you have it! A wonderful lunch that everybody loved.
