Green Goddess Soup with Cashew-Turmeric Drizzle

Beyond its nutritional cachet, moringa powder lends this soup, which manages to be simple yet refined at once, a vegetal flavour that plays well with the creamy, slightly astringent turmeric sauce. Matcha powder would be a good superfood powder substitute for moringa.

Cream of the crop 

Soaked and blended raw cashews are a good alternative to dairy-based creams. And it can be flavoured any way you please—both savoury and sweet.
