Raw Sweet Potato and Leek Soup

When I picked up my local farm share last week, I was a little dismayed to find out that it had THREE sweet potatoes in it! Sweet potatoes?! What the heck can I do with sweet potatoes?

Well, all I can say is thank goodness for the web. After some googling, I found this recipe at SpaFinders.com. Not only is this soup surprisingly gorgeous, it is absolutely delicious!

By far the best raw soup I’ve tried yet!

Raw sweet potato and leek soup
Ingredients:

1 lb sweet potato
1 lb leek
1 avocado
1 tbsp Braggs seasoning
1 small knob ginger (finely chopped)
1/2 white onion
1 vine-ripened tomato
Celtic sea salt and pepper to taste
1 cups charged water

Procedure:

Peel, wash, and chop the sweet potato and leeks.

Place all the ingredients in a high speed blender (preferably a Vita-mix or a Blendtec) and blend until the texture is smooth.

Adjust seasoning if necessary.

Enjoy!

p.s. Because this soup seems to get thick, feel free to dilute with a tablespoon or two of hot (though not boiling) water just before serving! Not only will it improve the consistency, it will warm it up for you, making it feel a little more like soup. Also, during the winter months, you might want to try heating your bowls before serving!
