Raw Kale Avocado Soup

Kale Avocado Soup 
Courtesy of Dr. Sachen Patel

1/2 an Avocado
2 tsp ginger root
1 – 2 cloves of garlic
2 cups of turnip greens (can also use kale or collard greens)
1 medium sized cucumber
1/2 tsp tumeric
1.5 cups of hot water
juice of 1 lime
Cilantro to taste
Add the contents to your blender. Add chopped cilantro on top.
Dr. Patel claims that this soup will clear your sinuses and will promote regularity.

This recipe was earthy and a bit too watery for our taste. I added another half of an avocado, a dash of tamari soy sauce and a few slices of jalapeno pepper to add flavor. It was a very green and light tasting soup, which I served alongside a main dish of raw Asian marinated mushrooms.
