This is the greenest of green soups, and it couldn’t be simpler to make. You put ten ingredients in a blender, puree, and then decide if you’d like to enjoy the soup hot or cold. In winter, I like the gently heated option, but keep in mind, this is also a fantastic summer soup when served chilled. It’s a potent jolt of alkalizing vegetables and herbs, with some staying power thanks to the fat in the silky coconut cream, and the protein-rich split green peas. Serve your green soup topped with whatever herbs, sprouts, or nuts you might have on hand, or simply straight and green.
A few considerations – in winter, heat the soup gently. Just shy of a simmer. And just before serving. This will help maintain the beneficial qualities of the miso, and more of the alkalizing power of the greens.
One last thing. This is a fantastic on-the-go soup. Pour it into a thermos along with an ice cube or two in the summer. You know the drill for winter – warm it up a bit. Green soup for all seasons!
