Sweet and spicy Goji soup

IMG_5534 Genesis PURE’s dark and delicious Goji juice adds a tinge of sweetness to this mouth-watering soup. You can also benefit from the berry’s protective phytonutrients for general health and well-being.

The goji berry has been historically called the “happy berry” for the sense of well-being one feels after consumption.

As a natural source of vitamin C and polysaccharides, Goji provides nutrition to help support healthy functions of the immune system. It is also a source of carotenoids, including lutein and zeaxanthin, which may help support eye health.* Reports have also shown that goji contains high levels of antioxidants, important for protecting the body from free radicals.
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of Genesis PURE Goji juice
  • 230g (1 cup) chopped tomatoes
  • 450ml (3/4 pint) vegetable stock (more if needed)
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 small chili, chopped finely OR 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 2 T. ground coriander

Directions:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan and saute the onion and chili for a couple of minutes before adding the tomatoes, goji juice and cumin.  Stir for another few minutes.
