We just held our Raw Radiance Retreat over the weekend and it went super smoothly. Yay! It was definitely the first one of many. There’s a wonderful complementarity between Ulla and us, and working with her was such a delight! I took lots of photos over the weekend and still have some editing to do, but I’ll be posting about our experience within the next few days.
In the meantime here’s another short video in my Raw in a Flash series. Today I’m showing you how to make a Cheezy Spinach Almond Soup. It is super creamy, has an incredible flavor and is very satisfying. One of my favorite comfort foods!
Cheezy Spinach Almond Soup
From Carmella’s Delightfully Raw
2 cups packed spinach
1 1/4 cups roughly chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup almonds, soaked for 8 hours or overnight
1 garlic clove
1 tbs nutritional yeast
1/4 cup tightly packed fresh parsley
1/4 cup tightly packed fresh dill
1 tsp light miso or 1/2 tsp salt (or more, to taste)
Water until desired consistency is reached
Blend all ingredients in high-speed blender until smooth.
If you wish a warm soup, use hot water or heat it up gently on the stove while stirring constantly.
Omni V 3 HP
If you’d like to learn more about this more affordable 3 HP blender, Don and I share our impressions of the Omni in greater details on this page.

Sunny Raw Kitchen Tour Update
I was telling you in a recent post that we are slowly getting ourselves ready to get back on the road; we’ll be once again headed down to the US for the cold months this fall. This will be our first time traveling in the luxury of our RawVee rather than a tent (woo hoo!) so we’re mighty excited about the prospect. What a relief not to have to constantly unload and reload the van. Yay!
Anyhoo I mentioned that we would love to connect with some of you guys along the way and that we’d need a bit of property, a large yard or driveway to set up our RawVee, with hopefully the possibility of water and electric hook up. It occurred to me shortly afterwards that this might be a major limiting factor for many of you who live in the city or just plainly don’t have much parking space. Sooooooo we’d like to emphasize that our first priority is to spend time with you and that we’ll be happy to stay at your home or set up at a nearby campground or RV park if need be. 😉
One of the fun aspects of the way we like to travel (with minimal planning and maximum fluidity) is to watch the itinerary gradually take shape according to the invitations we receive. The initial part of our journey is now starting to come together. Yay! We’ll be headed down to Milton Freewater, OR via Spokane, WA and continue south to Utah. We’ll then make our way through Arizona, California, and most likely drive back to BC along the West coast.
If you live somewhere along the way and are interested in hosting us or connecting during this next phase of our rawdventures, please send me an email with the subject line “Sunny Raw Kitchen Tour 2012” at:
