It’s a sad, sad day. The end has come. Vegan MoFo 2012 is officially over. Today is the last day of festivities. But…it’s not the end! Just because MoFo is over doesn’t mean we have to stop celebrating all things vegan. In fact, there were so many participants in this year’s MoFo that you could visit a new blog almost every day of the year. Take the weekends off, and you could visit a new vegan blog every day! Check out the blog roll if you haven’t already. It’s really amazing how many awesome bloggers showcased their creativity this month. Rock on, vegan bloggers. Rock on!
My last MoFo submission is a raw broccoli soup. The inspiration for this recipe came from a trip to the grocery store. Organic broccoli was on sale, and I couldn’t help myself. I bought two giant bunches. One got cut up for dip and the other became soup. Yummy, yummy soup.
Raw Broccoli Soup
2 c broccoli florets
2 c water or non-dairy milk
1/4 c raw pine nuts or cashews (soak cashews first)
1/4 c hemp seeds (soaked sunflower seeds will also work)
1 small, 3/4 medium or 1/2 large avocado
1 TBSP lemon juice (juice of one, large lemon)
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.
Blend everything in a high-speed blender until creamy. Continue blending on high until warm. Serve in your favorite mug and eat right away.
For added crunch, top with raw pumpkin seeds and/or a sprinkling of hemp seeds.
