Patty’s Living Celery Dill Soup: # 4 In CHI’s 20 Elegant Raw Soups

 

Serves 12 to 14

Ingredients:

  • 3 Organic English Cucumbers
  • 4 Bunches Organic Celery
  • 10 Organic Roma Tomatoes
  • 10 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 Cup Soaked Almonds
  • 2 1/2 Cups Purified Water
  • 3 Organic Avocados
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Aminos
  • 1 Cup Alfalfa Sprouts
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dill
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard Powder
  • (Optional) Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt and Dill for garnish with Celery leaf.

Directions:

  1. Juice cucumbers, celery, tomatoes and  garlic. Set aside in very large bowl.
  2. Blend almonds and water; strain pulp in nut milk bag and pour into large bowl with vegetable juice. Whisk.
  3. Ladle 4 cups of juice/milk mixture into high-speed blender and add sprouts, 1 1/2 of avocados, mustard and dill. Blend at high speed until smooth.
  4. Set aside another four cups of juice/ milk mixture.
  5. Empty blended mixture (with avocados and spices) into large bowl of juice/milk mixture.
  6.  Pour second batch of juice/milk mixture into blender. Add remaining 1 1/2 avocado. Blend at high speed until smooth.
  7. Pour blended juice/milk/avocado mixture back into large bowl.
  8. Whisk vigorously until blended well.
  9. Ladle six cups of soup mixture back into blender and blend at high speed.
  10. Pour blended mixture back into main bowl.
  11. Repeat steps 8, 9 and 10 until soup is very smooth and completely blended.
  12. You may enjoy this delicious raw living soup at room temperature, warm it in your high-speed blender by blending it on high speed for about five minutes (my favorite option), or set it in the dehydrator at 105 degrees for two hours before serving. If you dehydrate it, be sure to whisk it again before serving as the juice mixture will separate from the milk mixture as the soup sets.
  13. When you serve it, sprinkle it with dill and a celery leaf and, if you are willing to stray from Ann Wigmore’s strict raw living food guidelines, a pinch of Himalayan sea salt (the salt contains about 80 minerals so I consider it healthy in small amounts).

Note from Patty: This is the first soup I have created that fits within Ann Wigmore’s Raw Living Foods guidelines. I love that it tastes so gourmet and delicious and yet is something I could serve to Ann Wigmore if she were still alive and dropped by my house for dinner this evening. The flavours are extremely subtle and yet delicious. I absolutely LOVE this soup and so does CHI Director Bobby Morgan who ate several bowls of it before it was even warmed. Bobby said the soup is “an award winner” and that he could actually feel the healing energy and vibration from the soup as he ate it. I hope you enjoy this amazing soup as much as we do.

Also, I want to let you know that the process of developing 20 raw gourmet soups has been extremely rewarding so far. If you are trying to develop expertise as a raw chef, I highly suggest you consider sticking to one item (soups, salad dressings, granola, chips, crackers, cookies, etc…) and attempting to develop 10 to 20 variations on the theme. The process is very rewarding and you will find yourself thinking about your project at odd moments and developing more and more creative ideas. I think I have worked on creative projects for many years in this manner, finding that I am more creative by imposing a set of boundaries on myself for a time. I believe this idea came to me when I took drawing classes with renown sculpture David Barr many years ago. Barr, who has work in the Smithsonian Institute, told me his life as an artist expanded greatly during a period of years when he limited his sculpture pallet to black and white. Since then I have often seen the wisdom in establishing guidelines for creative projects.

Patty and Gigi’s Red Pepper Walnut Soup: #3 of CHI’s 20 Elegant Raw Soups

 We hope you enjoy this delicious soup Patty and Gigi created last week in the Creative Health Institute kitchen after forgetting to put walnuts in the granola we were making. We noticed the nuts still soaking on the counter and decided to create a soup around them. This is what we came up with. It is a favorite soup of several CHI interns and we hope you will enjoy it as well. For the first two soups in this 20 soups series, just visit these links: Soup # 1 ; Soup # 2.

Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups Walnuts (soaked six hours)
  • 6 Cups Purified Water
  • 2 Large Red Peppers, chopped
  • 1/3 Red Onion, chopped
  • 1/3 Cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut Nectar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, chopped

Directions:

    • Liquefy walnuts and water in high-speed blender into nut milk.
    • Pour half of milk into large glass or stainless steel bowl.
    • Add remaining ingredients.
    • Liquefy
    • Dehydrate for three hours.
    • Serve and enjoy!

Indian Coconut Carrot Soup: Soup # 2 of 20 Elegant Raw Soups

CHI Cucumber Sandwiches with Patty’s Ranch Dressing and Patty’s Indian Coconut Soup

Dear Friends,

I hope you enjoy this delicious soup recipe. And to those of you who tried the mushroom soup, I’m really sorry if, when you dehydrated it, it fermented on you. We discovered the same thing in our own kitchen and decided that mushroom soup is best served at room temperature or warmed just slightly in your Vitamix. This week I’ve created for you a soup you can heat in the dehydrator. I just LOVE it and so do a few other people around here. If you like Indian food, I suspect you’ll love it, too. If you’re not super crazy about Indian food, you’ll probably be able to take it or leave it. Whatever the case, I hope that if you’ve ever visited Creative Health Institute, you’ll be able to appreciate that it’s a great way to re-purpose our perpetually accumulating carrot pulp. We serve carrot juice daily to all of our guests who are addressing cancer challenges so we always have lots of carrot pulp around.

Also,  our friend Garrett from Texas wrote to ask that we include a good number of soups without cashews because many people like to avoid eating them. Considering Garrett’s suggestion this soup is cashew free.

And for those of you who want to spice up your Valentine’s Day, serve it like I do — with a few extra sprinkles of cayanne pepper.

Also, I want to say thank you to those of you who have offered to donate cameras! We received our first camera gift in the mail yesterday from Dolores and it enabled me to take this photograph for the blog. Julia just dropped off a camera that will allow us to take short videos. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We are so grateful to Delores and to Julia  to all of you consider  who Creative Health Institute so generously. Please remember one easy way to support our wonderful community is simply to do all of your online shopping through our link to Amazon.com on our web page. Each time you shop online through our online store, CHI receives a donation that will enable us to help others.

Love and blessings,

Patty

Indian Coconut Soup Ingredients

    • One Young Thai Coconut
    • 3 cups Carrot Pulp
    • The juice of one Lemon
    • The juice of one Tangerine
    • 1 t Himalayan Sea Salt
    • 1 T Garam Masala
    • 3 T Olive Oil
    • 4 cups fresh Almond Milk
    • 1/2 inch Ginger
    • 1 Clove Garlic
    • 1/4 cup Coconut Nectar
    • 1 T fresh Cilantro
    • Cayenne Pepper to taste
Directions:
  • Crack the coconut and pour the coconut water in your high-speed blender.
  • Scoop out the gelatinous coconut meat and place it in the blender.
  • Juice lemon and tangerine and add juice to blender.
  • Add all other ingredients — except cayenne.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Pour into bowl and dehydrate at 110 for three hours.
  • Ladle servings into a bowl and sprinkle cayanne pepper on top to suit your taste. (I like about 1/2 a teaspoon per bowl but that’s VERY hot!)

Patty’s Delicious  Raw Ranch Dressing

Blend in your high speed blender:

  • 2 cups of soaked raw cashews
  • 3 cups of water (maybe put in two cups first and add more for the consistancy you prefer)
  • 3 T nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 t black pepper
  • 1/2 t Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/2 T  dried dill
  • 1/2 T  dried parsley
  • 1/2 T dried cilantro
  • 1/2 t liquid smoke

This is a delicious ranch dressing for any raw salad or wrap. You may enjoy making our CHI Cucumber Sandwiches with it. Do it just like this:

  1. Take a square of your favorite raw bread (keep it simple…don’t use anything that overpowers the simple flavors of this yummy sandwich).
  2. Spread thinly sliced organic cucumbers in a thin bottom layer.
  3. Add about a tablespoon full of Patty’s Ranch Dressing on top of the cucumbers.
  4. Put two slices of avocado on top the dressing (it will help to hold on the dressing and tomatoes if you place them right).
  5. Add a spoonful of chopped tomatoes.
  6. Garnish with alfalfa sprouts.

This yummy sandwich was a joint creation of Patty, Don, Cheryl and Johannes from Austria. We hope you will enjoy the subtle flavors! We couldn’t assemble them fast enough and interns were gobbling them off the platter as we made them.

Best Mushroom Soup EVer

Hello Friends,

It’s the time of the year to enjoy wonderful warm soups. And just because we’re raw foodists doesn’t mean we have to miss out on the experience. There’s nothing I love more than making soup. Honestly, soup making even beats my love of cookie making.

So, I’ve decided my gift to my CHI friends for Winter 2012 will be 20 delicious gourmet soup recipes. This first recipe is simple and delicious. I’ll be experimenting during the next few months in the Creative Health Institute kitchen with our amazing wholesome ingredients and I promise only to post recipes that are in the same league as this amazing and simply elegant mushroom soup.

I don’t like schedules, so don’t hold me to one. 🙂  But I expect I’ll post about one new soup recipe per week for the next few months. Some weeks I may give you two recipes. I’ll only post recipes that are my own original creations and recipes that are equal in flavor to this one.

I hope you enjoy the soup. This soup project will help me achieve my Chef III Certification. So please comment on the blog or post on Facebook and let us know how you like each recipe.

Love, blessings and warm RAWsome soup,

Patty

Relieving Autointoxication By Dry Skin Brushing

 

 Nothing Cleanses The Lymph System Like Dry Skin Brushing

 What is the largest organ in the body? THE SKIN!

  1. What is one of the most important elimination organs in the body? THE SKIN!
  2. What organ is responsible for ¼ of the body’s detoxification each day?
    THE SKIN!
  3. What organ eliminates up to 2 pounds of waste acids, daily? THE SKIN!
  4. When the blood has an over abundance of toxic materials, what organ will reflect this with problems? THE SKIN! 

Dry skin brushing is a swift and powerful way to enhance the detoxification process . Its easy, pleasant and yields tremendous benefits!

Dry brushing has been used for centuries by Scandinavians and Russians. More than 30 years ago, a Finnish doctor and one the greatest doctors of the century, Paavo Airola prescribed dry skin brushing for all his patients for detoxifying the lymph system and to exfoliate and stimulate the skin. Today,many health practitioners recommend dry skin brushing to open the pores of the skin and clean out the lymphatic system.  Dry skin brushing is not only a great way to maintain healthy skin, but also helps maintain a healthy body. The ability of the skin to open up the pores to excrete toxins is of paramount importance in helping to overcome autointoxication. 

When the pores are not clogged with dead cells and the lymphatic system is stimulated and cleansed, all organs in the body are better able to carry out the important function of eliminating toxic waste. Further, it increases blood circulation in all underlying organs and tissues. 

As part of a detoxification and autointoxication cleansing program, our guests combine skin brushing, saunas and warm and cold showers. Follow these steps for the highest level of cleansing:

  1. Skin brush before entering the sauna, remain in the sauna until in a full sweat.
  2. Take a warm shower followed by a quick cold shower
  3. Dry off all of your body and dry skin brush again – always towards your heart accept for between the bottom and top of your neck.
  4. Jump back into the sauna and remain to the point of flowing perspiration. 
  5. This combination of skin brushing, saunas and showers has proved to be a powerful method for eliminating waste and toxins from the body.

CHI recommends you dry skin brush, morning and night, before your enema, during the program, then once a day after the program is completed.

       I.        A long-handled natural bristle brush, with a removable head is best. 

      II.        When you first start be sure to brush the skin lightly. Always towards your heart accept for between the bottom and top of your neck.

    III.        As the skin becomes toned, you may brush heavier.  Women should not brush their breast.

   IV.        Start at the bottom of the feet using a straight motion. 

     V.        Brush in long strokes from the feet toward the waist.

   VI.        Brush from the waste to the bottom of your rib cage, moving the brush with clockwise circular motions.

  VII.        Brush the ribcage towards the heart.

 VIII.        Hold your arm out in front of you and brush from your fingers toward your shoulders.

   IX.        Brush up from the bottom of your neck to the top of it

     X.        Brush from the bottom of your neck toward your heart.

   XI.        Brush your skin until it gets a red glow.

  XII.        Women should avoid doing the breasts. 

 XIII.        Never wet your dry skin brush, accept for cleaning. Avoid sensitive areas and anywhere the skin is broken.

 XV.        Skin brushing should take about 5 minutes. Clean your skin brush using soap and water once a week. After rinsing, dry your skin brush in an open, sunny spot to prevent mildew.

Proper Showering After Dry Brushing

If you are not following the aforementioned routine, a shower should always follow skin brushing. 

  1. This will remove uric acid crystals along with any dead skin that has been loosened. 
  2. Always start your shower with warm water and end with cold. 
  3. Once the water is cold, do not stay in any longer.  When the water turns cold, let it hit your legs first.  Do not let it hit your heart or head first as this can cause a slight shock to the body. 
  4. Vigorously dry off your body.
  5. Though this is not a problem here at CHI hot shower temperatures create steam that can disperse toxic chemicals found in unfiltered water:   Therefore, avoid hot showers, if your water is not filtered. 

The Seven Magnificent Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing

      I.        Opens pores, removes toxins and dead skin allowing the skin to breath.

    II.        Increases blood circulation and healthy cell renewal.

   III.        Helps to stimulate hormone and oil-producing glands.

  IV.        Helps to take the load off other organs by helping the eliminative system, discharge metabolic wastes, greatly aiding with the movement of lymph and the lymphatic drainage of the entire body.

   V.        Helps in rejuvenating the nervous system. Helps improve muscle tone and prevent fat deposits, including cellulite.

  VI.        Rejuvenates the skin and improves complexion.

 VII.        Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymph canals to drain toxic lymph matter into the colon, thereby purifying the entire system. This enables the lymph to perform its house-cleaning duties by keeping the blood and other vital tissues detoxified. After several days of dry brushing, you may notice the gelatinous lymph material in your stools.’
