Recipe: Mean Green Soup

Anyway, I recently had the opportunity to feed a group of yogis visiting from Brooklyn, NY. They were a fascinatingly fabulous bunch, and I am not too humble to say that I think I turned a few of them vegetarian (loving, anyway) while they were here. At lunch one day, I decided to toss this green-bomb their way, to great reviews.

We are over half way through January! Where does the time go? While the turn of a new year always offers an influx of client inquiries to my raw food/conscious culinary company here in Costa Rica, I am floored by how many hoteliers, restaurant owners, and visiting tourists have shown extreme interest in incorporating more plant-based cuisine, events, and specialty dinners into their worlds this month. I think this wellness tribe is growing!
