Raw Spinach-Avocado Soup with Thyme and Fresh Lemon Juice

Raw Spinach-Avocado Soup with Thyme and Fresh Lemon Juice

T= Tablespoon
t= teaspoon
c= cup

In a blender:
2 c spinach (rinsed)
1/2 a green onion
1 small apple (peeled and cored)
1 avocado
1/2 c or 1 c tomatoes
1 t sea salt (or to taste)
1/2 t thyme
1/4 t cayenne pepper
1 T olive oil
1 t capers (rinse them or they will be too astringent)
2 T fresh lemon juice
4 c hot water (either from the tap or heated slightly in a pot)- added last gives you warm soup!

1. blend for a couple of minutes until it's smooth.
2. top with diced tomatoes, freshly ground black pepper, green onions, sesame seeds and you absolutely have to squeeze fresh lemon juice over it before serving.

The flavors are exquisitely paired! Makes 4 bowls of soup.

*Food photography tricks: Pour some olive oil into a spoon and drip it over the surface of the soup, and make sure you have many levels of texture, contrast and colors. Use white dishes and shoot in daylight- it's the easiest way to achieve natural, fresh-looking food photographs.
