1/2 onion; chopped
2 celery stalks; chopped
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 small clove garlic; crushed
1 lb frozen spinach
pinch fresh ground black pepper
pinch cumin
1/2 cup raw cashews
3 1/2 cups water

Preheat a soup pot to medium low, add canola oil, onion, celery and sea salt and simmer for 5 minutes with lid on. Stir occasionally and add 1 Tablespoon of water as needed to prevent burning. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 30 minutes. Puree the ingredients with a handheld immersion blender OR allow to cool, puree in countertop blender, return to pot and reheat. Add more water as needed for the consistency and salt and pepper to taste.

      Hi Maddie,
      I have no idea, I don’t count calories. I believe in eating meals prepared with whole foods, eating a variety of those and of course moderation. Sorry I am no help.
