I'm pretty good about eating my vegetables, I actually like broccoli, asparagus and cauliflower but when I look back on my daily intake of food I can't help but see a dearth of raw green vegis. Enter the Vitamix. Today I made soup for lunch, I threw in some broccoli, a carrot, a small cucumber, a quarter of an onion and a handful of kale along with about a half cup of water and blended until smooth. Now I know that you can actually heat soup up in the super fast Vitamix, but I opted to just put it on the stove for five minutes. I seasoned it with salt, pepper and some hot sauce and served it with a bit of crumbled cojita cheese.
Pretty good. I think the onion kind of made it a bit tart. Next time I'll either precook the onion or use a Walla Walla sweet. We'll see how it fuels me at the races tonight.
