Serves 2 on the lighter side: Feel free to double the recipe.
Blend in a high-speed blender on high for 1 – 2 minutes:
2 1/2 cups warm herbal tea (ginger and medicinal mushrooms like shiitake are easy and flaverful!)
3 tablespoons organic miso (chickpea miso is excellent and soy-free)
3 tablespoons organic dried sea vegetables (choose from whole kelp, dulse, sea lettuce, laver and other favorites)
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil or organic ghee (my favorite!) or more coconut oil
2 teaspoons hemp seeds or collagen protein powder
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed organic lemon or lime juice
1 – 2 teaspoons Longevity Power Maca Bliss
1 teaspoon organic fresh or dried rosemary
1 teaspoon organic fresh or dried sage leaf
1/4 teaspoon organic fresh or dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon organic dried cayenne (whole dried or powder, approximately 40,000 IU, a measurement of heat units)
1 pinch sea salt
1 clove garlic
1/8 teaspoon MORE dried cayenne
bone broth, in any amount
The soup should end up quite warm (because of starting with warm herbal tea and the warming friction of the blender) and creamy with the sea vegetables well blended. Blend longer if using a low-powered blender. Pour into ceramic mugs or bowls and garnish with parsley, coconut amines/organic soy sauce, more lemon or lime juice, ad sprinkles of cayenne powder or Maca Bliss.
Feel the love for the holidays! Take great care of yourself!
