By  | 

Douglas McNish, head chef of Toronto's Raw Aura organic and raw restaurant is back to share one of his raw, vegan recipes. Watch for more of his recipes, published twice a month here at Blisstree.

This soup is amazing this time of year, when most of us are lacking healthy fats and trace minerals. Plus, the dulse provides your thyroid gland the help it needs to detox the body from holiday overindulging.

Zesty Detox Soup With Lime, Spinach, and Avocado


2 1/2 cups chopped spinach
3 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp dried dulse
1/2 medium avocado
2 cups filtered water
1 clove garlic


Using a blender, add all ingredients and blend until smooth.

Yields: 3 cups
