(all organic ingredients)
  • 1/2 tomato
  • 1/4 cucumber

Gazpacho Morning, Noon and Night Soup
Recipe on p. 188
(all organic ingredients)
  • 5 large tomatoes
  • 2-3 cucumbers, light peel and seeded
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 avocado, diced (add to soup right before serving)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-1 1/2 cups of cold purified water (optional)
  • juice of 1 lemon or lime
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh herbs to taste
  • 1 tsp cumin (optional)
Directions: cut 1/2 of tomatoes, cucumbers, red and green peppers into chunks for the blender, and dice the other half for addition to the soup after it has been blended. Blend on liquefy - tomato, cucumber, red and green pepper, lemon juice, olive oil and add 1 cup of water. Add the red onion, jalapeno, garlic, herbs, cumin, salt and cayenne - blend to mix well. Pour mixture into a serving bowl and stir in chopped vegetables and avocado. Add remaining water as needed for desired consistency. I like to use cilantro, or a combination of oregano and basil. Chill for an hour and then serve.

  2. Is this like a soup or a salsa? Im so interested, but was just curious as it looked like salsa especially the way it is presented in the pic.

    Love and Prayers,

  3. Hi Tim,

    It is a favorite soup of ours. The children are begging me to make it this week! You could make it chunkier and then eat as a salsa too! The more avocado the better it is for you :) Enjoy!

    Love and blessings,
    Jill

  5. Hi Jill. I have a Champion juicer and don't utilize it nearly as much as I used to. We used to juice every day for several years, then after Anna died somehow I lost my zeal for keeping healthy. Anna was my inspiration in the first place. It came back after time but I need to get back to juicing. My biggest struggle with juicing and eating lots of fresh food is actually the expense for a larger family.

    I (and some family members) also struggle with natural food chemicals (salicylates, thiols etc.) - all healthy things. I think it's because of mercury toxicity - I've found out some interesting things related to sulfur oxidation and mercury toxicity. My body seems to have trouble with processing healthy food chemicals. I'm in the process of chelating and hope that will improve soon.

    The recipe looks yummy.
