I would add cumin to this recipe, as well as pureed avocado.....and only barely heat, rather than boil - boiling kills or changes a lot of the essential nutrients.

Sha.....go for it! All these recipes are open for your own creativity.

I have made this at a cafe I owned. I thickened it with the amazing Kudzu Root Powder, which is the most alkalizing thickener on the planet!. It's actually medicinal and strengthening!
