To the Chef: South River Garbanzo Miso is my personal favorite but any light colored miso will do. Be sure to purchase miso from the refrigerator section as this miso will be alive with enzymes and friendly bacteria.
Equipment Needed: High speed blender or if using a home blender, blend in 2 batches.
2 ½ cups purified water or fresh coconut water
1 lemon, peeled, seeded and cut in large chunks
1 medium avocado, cut in chunks
1 stalk celery, cut in large pieces
1 handful sunflower spouts or other sprouts
1 handful buckwheat sprouts or pea sprouts
1 small handful fresh dill weed
3-5 leaves of kale or chard
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons South River Garbanzo Miso or other unpasterized light colored miso
2 tablespoons Nama Shuyo or tamari
2 tablespoons dulse flakes or ¼ cup dulse
2 teaspoons curry powder
cayenne pepper, to taste
| For An Artful Presentation 3 tablespoons raw tahini (sesame butter) 3 tablespoons water 2 teaspoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon Nama Shuyo or tamari
In a high speed blender, put all the ingredients and blend until smooth. If using a home blender, blend in two batches.
For An Artful Presentation
In a small bowl, put all the ingredients for the Presentation and whisk until smooth. The mixture needs to be the consistency of a thick oil. If too thin add more tahini or too thick add more lemon juice or water.
To Create a Feather Pattern
Drizzle the tahini mixture in 3 lines or 3 consecutive circles across the top(s) of the soup that has been placed in a serving bowl or individual bowls. Using a thin knife, draw a line across the lines or circles of tahini in 4 or 5 places. This will make a beautiful feather design on top of your soup. Now your soup has a beautiful and professional look.
Best served immediately. To make this soup a complete meal, serve with a Kale Salad and flax crackers.
How to Store
If you cannot finish your soup in 1 setting, put the remainder in a glass jar and secure with the lid. Refrigerate for up to 12 hours.
