Do you like juicing your food to get the most of the raw fruits and vegetables?
Did you know that multi-purpose cold press juicers are excellent soup makers? So if you want an alternative method to add to your raw food diet and get a meal from your juicer, just add soups to your healthy juicing recipes!
There are many other raw soup recipes than just gazpacho and you can eat them warm!
Just select the vegetables you would like, keeping the pulp adjustment nozzle loose enough to allow for pulp to enter with the juice, add some fat superfoods like avocado if you don't want to add butter later, add salt and pepper and warm it gently in a saucepan. But be careful not overheat so you don't kill off any enzymes.
You can add spices, seeds, fresh herbs and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
If you want your soup thinner, you can tighten the pulp adjustment nozzle to have less texture and fiber in it.
