This soup is nourishing and detoxifying, and when eaten regularly can help replenish nutrient deficiencies, boost immunity and restore vitality. Its delicious and you can use different greens to vary the nutrients and the taste!
1 Tablespoon Ghee or Olive Oil
2 Cups Blessed water or Tea (Astragalus, Pau d’Arco, Echinacea, Nettle, Chamomile)
1 teaspoon Masala
1 teaspoon Pink Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground Turmeric
1/8 teaspoon Fenugreek Seeds
1 Cup Crumbled Fresh Soft Cheese (dairy or non-dairy) ~or~ you could use 1/2 cup soaked Cashews or 1/2 cup cooked lentils instead
1 Pound Leafy Greens such as Chard, Beet Greens, Collards, Spinach, Arugula, Kale &/or Sprouts.
1/2 Cup Fresh Parsley or Cilantro
Garnish with Fresh Lime Juice
In a medium saucepan add oil and spices, simmer and add 2 cups blessed water or tea and cheese. Bring to a simmer over medium low heat and cook for 10-15 minutes. While cheese is cooking, prepare your greens: wash, stem and tear them so they blend well ~ this should yield about 8 packed cups or so. Gradually add the greens and parsley, turning them over until they wilt but still remain their vibrant color (about 3-5 minutes). Turn off heat and leave soup uncovered to cool down a bit before transferring to blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Reheat to desired warmth.
Garnish with lime and serve hot.

Thought of the moment:
Of all that is wonderful in the human being, our most glorious asset is the capacity to change ourselves. ~Eknath Easwaran
My health journey started when I was a teenager, struggling with chronic health problems and searching for the answers to my own healing. My curiosity deepens when I was working with autistic children at a local elementary school, I felt like I couldn’t help them truly heal in the public education system and after many direct experiences with how food affected the children, I started to be interested in a raw vegan diet. To further deepen my journey, my parents were both diagnosed with cancer, I became interested in juice fasting and cleansing. Armed with a juicer and a passion for those quiet moments spent creating in the kitchen, I began to uncover my health truth through purposeful cleansing and eating a plant-based diet.

I love this soup below! Can’t wait to make it!
And since I’m thinking of Walking Lightly Ranch, I want to thank you again for including fish or chicken in the afternoon meals while my group is there. Two people requested this as you know… and then yesterday evening, after class, I was introducing one participant to another participant (they will both be there at the retreat, but didn’t know each other until yesterday) and the topic of meat came up again. One person asked if there will be meat and the other person said, YES, I requested it and Fran told me it will be served at lunchtime. And the other person, who had not previously mentioned meat, cheered saying she and her husband will be so happy to have meat at the meal. So there you have it, I hope you will have enough fish or chicken for more than just the two who requested it….I am vegetarian and I am ok with there being meat at the table. My husband is a meat eater. I just think it is so interesting how the trend is now to eat animal protein (as if beans, legumes, and vegetables don’t have protein content.).
Sorry to bother you with these details.
I can’t wait to see you. And I am wondering if there is any snow at this time? And I’m also wondering if we will see your darling baby??
Sending you big hugs.
