Green Raw Soup
This is a wonderfully alkalizing soup that I prefer served cold in the summer months and warmed in the winter months. It’s energizing and easy to digest.
1-2 cucumbers, peeled and seeded
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded
½ yellow onion, diced
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1-2 cups light vegetable stock or water
3 cloves garlic
1 Tbs. fresh cilantro
1 Tbs. fresh parsley
1 carrot, finely diced
Purée all ingredients (except onions and carrot) in a food processor. Use more or less water for desired consistency. Add onions and raw crunchy carrot bits at the end for garnish. Yum.

Its hard to think of anything more delightful to eat —or to prepare— for a late-summer meal than gazpacho — a no-cook Spanish soup of garden-fresh vegetables and just the right amount of zing to make them interesting. I keep the calorie count low by using much less oil than is traditionally put in gazpacho. The vegetables are divided: half are puréed to give the soup body; half are chopped and added for texture. The result is wonderful.
This recipe uses canned tomato juice, so be gentle on the salt unless you buy or make juice with no added salt.
1 large cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, and cored to remove seeds, divided
2 arge tomatoes, peeled, cored, and seeded, divided
1 reen pepper, halved and seeded, divided
1 medium onion, peeled and halved, divided
3 cups tomato juice, divided
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
¼ teaspoon hot pepper sauce (Tabasco)
1 teaspoon salt, if desired (Celtic of sea)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or more, to taste
3 to 4 cloves garlic, finely minced or crushed Croutons for garnish (optional)
1. In a blender, combine half the cucumber, 1 tomato, half the green pepper, half the onion, the whole pimiento, and 1 cup of the tomato juice. Purée the ingredients at high speed.
2. Chop the remaining cucumber, tomato, green pepper, and onion. Place the vegetables in a bowl, cover it, and refrigerate it until serving time.
3. Pour the purée into a large serving bowl or tureen, and add the remaining 2 cups tomato juice, the vinegar, oil, pepper sauce, salt, pepper, and garlic. Refrigerate the gazpacho, covered, for at least 2 hours.
4. Just before serving the soup, add the reserved chopped vegetables to the purée mixture. Check the seasonings. Serve the gazpacho with croutons, if desired.
