|Raw vegan creamy seaweed soup|
I was a little skeptical, but it was fantastic. Not to mention fast and easy!
I got this recipe out of a raw vegan cookbook... somewhere. Unfortunately, I did not write down which cookbook, and I regret that I cannot give proper credit! If anyone knows where this came from, please let me know and I will cite appropriately.
Seaweed is very high in iron, calcium, and other minerals. Seaweed also has strong anti-inflammatory compounds, as well as antiviral and anticoagulant properties. For more information on the health benefits of different types of seaweed, click here and here.

1 cup raw pine nuts
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
