This savory smoothie or soup is VERY warming and REALLY high in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory power! Plus, it boasts a lot of taste complexity and it was quick and easy to make. I didn't take a picture because - guess what? It looks like a green smoothie!
1 medium avocado
2 big handfuls greens (I used baby lettuces)
2 celery stalks, chopped
juice of 1 medium lemon
1/2 finger of ginger, peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp. curry powder
1/8 tsp. Asafoetida
1/8 tsp. turmeric
pinch of cayenne
water to desired thickness and temperature
Put everything in a blender and whiz away. Adjust seasonings to taste. If you want to consume this as a soup, you could garnish it with chopped or shredded veges, or seeds such as pumpkin, sunflower and sesame.
