I made a recipe of "raw pea soup" this morning. It consisted of about two cups of frozen peas, covered with filtered water and then blended in a powerful blender (in my case a 1/4 horse power one). Then I added a small amount of apples, mangoes, and pineapple for sweetness, and then blended again. Then I added parsley, basil, turmeric, ginger, and cilantro, and then blended, occasionally adding water to thin the liquid enough so that the blender does not work too hard, but not enough to spoil the cream soup texture. Added about 1/4 cup of Tahini, 1/8 cup of Miso, some shakes of Himalayan salt, two shakes of Tamari gluten free soy sauce, 1/2 tablespoon of chili paste, and two squeezes of lemon juice, and then blended again. Added 1/4 cup of corn, and then blended again. Added some Flax Seed Oil (3 tablespoons) and Eschium Oil (2 tablespoons) for Omega 3's and just pulsed on low power (to preserve the delicate Omega 3's).
The tahini and peas have a fair amount of protein. Pineapple has the enzymes. The Himalayan salt has ionic minerals. There are many herbs with good medicinal properties in this mix. There are natural fruit sugars for some good energy.
