Fastest Spinach Soup EVER!


This recipe was created when I was busily preparing food for one of my recent workshops. My staff were all working so hard preparing the ingredients for the following day that they forgot to eat! So I went into action and whipped up this spinach soup and within 8 minutes we were enjoying it, making this the fastest spinach soup ever!



8 cups         fresh spinach, loosely packed

1/4 cup       lemon juice

1 cup          roasted squash or yam or canned organic pumpkin

1 tbsp         coconut butter

2-3             whole green onions

1                GoBio bouillon cube (or 1/4 cup of vegetable stock works too)

2 1/2 cups  boiling water

1/4 cup      hemp hearts

                  unrefined sea salt to taste

                  drizzle of organic olive oil


1) Put all ingredients (except olive oil) into a blender and puree on high until silky smooth.

2) Pour into bowls and top with some chopped green onion and a drizzle of olive oil. Makes 3 cups.

Julie, have already added this to my 101 ways to Hemp:) Have your book and LOVE it! Congrats on it making the best seller list too.
I throw hemp hearts and ground flax into most everything, especially my spinach smoothy. I picked up a hemp brand called "Hemp Hearts" last week, only because of the most interesting reading material on the outside of the container. It starts off with, "Ancient Tribal Foods For Health Accuses the Canadian Government of Nutritional Genocide"...and it went on, just HAD to bring it home and read the rest:)
I'll next look for Manitoba Harvest.

Thanks Christine!

The politics of hemp is quite crazy. There are so many wonderful things that can be done with hemp yet the so called "War on Drugs", is hampering the progress that could be made on products such as food, clothing, paper, etc.

Here is a great new video by Manitoba Harvest on their harvesting process. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eT7nNKDjpWs&feature=related

Cheers, Julie

Julie, terrific link to MH on youtube! From there, there was a link to a Martha Stewart youtube episode from her, I believe now old, show. She spoke about seeds, hemp in particular and mentioned "Chia" seeds. I'm thinking now we could all put our old "Chia Pet" pottery to use again:) Would there be nutritional value to eating these sprouted Chia seeds, as there is to so many other veg and plant sprouts?
If so, a trip to Walmart is in order:)

Hi Christine,

Thanks for the feedback. Organic Chia sprouts are excellent for you! Packed full of nutrients. Here is some more info from the Sprout People http://www.sproutpeople.com/seed/chia.html

Julie, I just found "Manitoba Harvest" hemp hearts, 675g bags, at "Costco", at an astoundingly affordable price. Thanks for mentioning this brand name, because I then recognized it immediately on the shelf. (less then half the price I paid, for half the amount, at my local Health Food Store) Not knocking HFS's, just saying:) Nutritional AND economical, what could be better!
# Julie Daniluk 2012-03-10 17:36
Manitoba Harvest mentioned landing an account with Costco! Glad to hear you can add this important food into your diet in an affordable way.

Cheers, Julie

Hi Julie...
Can you let me know how much tamarind goes in to the goat curry..and when does the rum get added???

and then there is the PGx and the Dasheen. I'm not sure what they are?

# Julie Daniluk 2012-03-20 17:15
Hi Judy,

Here are the answers to your questions:
2 tbs of Tamarind, add the rum at the last moment and PGX and Dasheen can be found in a health food store.

Cheers! Julie

I have never heard of coconut butter. Where should I look for it.
# Julie Daniluk 2012-03-20 17:13
Hi Alaura,

You can pick up Coconut butter at any health food store. The Loblaws Superstores are now stocking it too.

Julie, what would be your soy substitute when making a stir fry?
# Janet Duffy 2 2013-10-02 02:28
I forgot to roast a squash for this recipe which I was going to make tonight. So I substituted a can of white beans and 3 dates for the squash. I thought it worked real well!
# Julie Daniluk 2013-10-02 12:02
Good adaption Janet,

Great to hear from you!

Cheers, Julie
