Spinach Soup

Spinach Soup

One of the amazing things about incorporating more fruits and vegetables into our diet is the way that our taste buds change, and we begin to crave more and more of these fresh ingredients over time. When you find yourself yearning for leafy greens and the benefits they provide, this easy-to-make, richly flavored soup is a great way to incorporate them into your day in an easily digestible form. With all of the minerals the spinach provides, you’ll also help curb any cravings for the foods you know don’t serve your health right now.

How do I make spinach soup?

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 orange
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 2 basil leaves or a few sprigs of cilantro
  • 1⁄2 avocado (optional)

Directions:

Blend the tomatoes, celery, and garlic with the juice of 1 orange until smooth. Add the spinach by the handful until completely incorporated. Add the basil and the avocado (if desired), and blend. Serve and enjoy immediately!

Is this soup eaten hot or cold?

This is raw soup intended to be served at room temperature. It should not be heated.

Spinach Soup FAQ

Is there any substitution for the tomatoes?

Yes, you can use 1-2 mangos instead.

Should this be eaten cold or room temperature?

It’s best to eat it room temperature, soon after it’s prepared for the greatest benefits.

What is your view on the oxalate content of spinach?

There is a myth that certain leafy green vegetables are high in oxalates and are therefore harmful. This is completely incorrect and is preventing many people from getting some powerful and needed nutrients and healing properties provided by foods deemed to be high in oxalates.

Oxalates are not the concern they are believed to be. There are oxalates in every single fruit and vegetable on the planet. The vast array of nutrients in so-called high oxalate leafy greens are some of the most nutritious available to us. Medical research and science has not discovered that there are anti-oxalates in fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens that prevent the oxalates from causing us the damage the current trend tells us they do. In reality, these foods don’t cause us any harm, rather they provide us with critical healing nutrients like phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals.

I’m allergic to oranges, what can I substitute with?

You can add the juice of a lemon or lime.

Is it ok to eat spinach cooked? Or is it more beneficial when it’s raw?

Raw spinach is the most nutritious and healthy. It’s best to eat all leafy greens (lettuces, kale, spinach) raw.

Is it ok to freeze spinach until you are ready to use it?

Ideally, you want the spinach fresh and raw in this soup.

Should tomatoes be avoided because they’re considered to be a nightshade?

If you’ve heard that nightshade vegetables aggravate conditions such as arthritis, you can let go of this misconception. Potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants, when ripe, have no negative effect on health. It’s the opposite: These amazing foods enhance health with their nutrients and healing properties. They’re exactly what you need when you’re dealing with illness.

The modern-day theory goes that these foods are high in alkaloids that cause inflammation. It’s not the alkaloids causing inflammation, though. It’s not the foods that grow on nightshade plants that are the problem. We have to look at the other ingredients served with these foods. In the case of ketchup and tomato sauce, there’s often high-fructose corn syrup, and where there’s tomato, you’ll frequently find a wheat crust or slice of sandwich bread.
