Here’s a delicious soup recipe that’s a classic favorite for many households:

Tomato Basil Soup


  • 2 medium-sized tomatoes
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil or 2 tablespoons dried el
  • 1/4 teaspoon kelp powder
  • 1 clove fresh garlic or 1 teaspoon powdered
  • 1 avocado (optional for creaminess)
  • 2 cups spinach, finely minced


  1. Blend all ingredients except spinach until smooth.
  2. Sprinkle salt over spinach and massage until wilted.
  3. Stir spinach into soup and add water or vegetable juice if needed to thin to desired consistency

    Ritamarie –

    Is this a raw soup? The recipe says to blend the ingredients, but there is nothing said about heating/simmering the soup. Thanks.

      Hi Diana! Thanks for writing.

      Yes, this is a raw soup, though in the B4 Be Gone Recipe Collection, Dr. Ritamarie does share a note about her soup recipes overall:

      Note about Heating: If you feel that the raw soups are too “cold,” you can gently heat up your soups to 110°F using a stove, crock pot, electric skillet, or dehydrator.

      Best wishes and enjoy!
