Recipe for Raw Creamy Broccoli Soup

Today, I decided that soup was a perfect lunch choice.   The following recipe was adapted from "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Eating Raw". 

Raw Creamy Broccoli Soup 

3 cups of Broccoli florets
1 1/2 cups water
2 TB. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup celery
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1 TB. nama shoyu
2 TB. nutritional yeast
1/8 tsp. salt
1 clove garlic
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

Putting all of the ingredients in the Vitamix, I blended for about one minute.  Water can be added to reach desired consistency.  The recipe states that cauliflower may be used in the place of broccoli for a creamier soup.  May be served warm from the blender or at room temperature.  It says this makes 6 cups but mine did not.  I did not add any extra water so it made a little under 3 cups.  I ate half and will save the other half for later.  I really enjoyed the spicy flavor.
