This is an old recipe that Ann Wigmore recommended for acute illness and for revitalizing your body. I make it because it’s a great way to get in my greens without all the extra fruit and sugars of a smoothie.
This soup can be adjusted according to your taste buds and what you have on hand. There are a million combinations so just use the below ingredients as a guide. Most important is to use greens, sprouts and seaweed for its minerals and trace minerals.
Blend in your Vitamix or blender:
4 cups of greens. I use Swiss chard, kale, collards and sometimes dandelion but the dandelion will make it more bitter.
4 cups of sprouts. I use sunflower greens mostly. Pea sprouts, mung bean or any other combination works well also
Half of a red bell pepper or an apple for more sweetness.
Half to one avocado for its mono-unsaturated fat which also helps to digest the greens and for absorption.
1/4 cup seaweed. I use a huge handful of dulse on top, as pictured. I like it better then blended and it adds a sweetness and some texture.
Ann Wigmore used home-made Rejuvelac instead of water but if you don’t have any made, just use water as needed. I normally don’t even add any liquid and just let my Vitamix blend this into a thick soup with the help of the Vitamix plunger but you may need to add a little to allow it to blend to a smooth consistency.
