Raw Spicy Avocado and Corn Soup


If you are scared of the word "raw", you can call this a non-tomato based gazpacho.
It's summer and I love soup. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that soup is a passion of mine so any excuse will do.
Also, I went to a natropath as I get hayfever, sinusitis and stomach aches a lot. I've been to many a GP about these situations and as a nurse, I know that unless there is something showing in my blood or in a physical examination, there isn't much modern science can do.
I do believe in food as medicine. The medicines that we use in everyday life are generally of a plant based origin so it just makes sense. The way that so called foods these days are produced is ridiculous and literally makes stomachs turn. Next time you are eating a food, look at the ingredients list and type those numbers into google. You will be shocked at what you find is in this "food". Often you will find petroleum products amongst a range of weird and wonderful things.
These things are often what causes simple issues like hayfever and IBS, leading onto more serious cases of cancer and heart disease. The only ways to avoid these illnesses is to not eat these products.

Makes: 4 Serves.
Time: 10 minutes.

Ingredients:
  • One avocado.
  • One cob of corn. Remove the corn and use this.
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce or tamari.
  • One clove of garlic.
  • Quarter of an onion.
  • Quarter of a cup of parsley.
  • A pinch of dried chilli.
  • One tablespoon of olive oil.
  • A few shakes of pepper.
  • Half a tomato, chopped to garnish.
Method:

Place all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Feel free to add a little warm water if you like it a bit more runny.
Place into a bowl and add the tomato on top prior to serving.
