RAW VEGAN SOUP AND SALAD

IMG_0478

Who doesn’t love soup? It is a great way to take a handful of ingredients and create multiple meals out of it by putting them in a pot of water.

Raw soups are not unlike cooked soups in that they are made up of handfuls of this and that thrown into water, but instead of a pot it is the jar of a blender. Any fresh uncooked, not canned or processed produce can be added as in many ways raw soups are savory smoothies or like a salad smoothie.

Sometimes the best ones are just items you find in your crisper.

The soup I created tonight is a nice mixture of all kinds of wonderful flavors and it was so easy it was done in minutes.

Recipe:

Appliances used: Vitamix blender

RAW SOUP

In the jar of a blender add:

Handful of chopped kale or baby kale micro greens

Half a cup of sun-dried tomatoes soaked for at least 2 hours ( I did mine over night)

2 carrots loosely chopped

3 small stalks of celery loosely chopped

2 medium tomatoes quartered

1/2 a jalapeno pepper sliced

1 tbsp unpasteurized miso

I tbsp raw apple cider vinegar (Bragg’s has a good one)

Juice of 1 lemon

3 cloves of garlic

Add purified water to either halfway to three quarters up to the top line of the veggies.

I set my vitamix on smoothie and let it to it’s thing and voila SOUP!

Note:¬†you can add any fresh veggies to this, please don’t feel you have to be dogmatic to this recipe, this is just what I created off the top of my head tonight. Be creative and use the veggies you like best.

With my soup tonight I had salad with a dressing I made myself:

Recipe:

Appliances used: Magic bullet

Miso Ginger Dressing:

1 tbsp miso

1 large pinch of fresh grated ginger

juice of 3 limes

1 tbsp raw agave

I pour this on a nice salad of mixed greens, sliced small heirloom tomatoes, 2 chopped green onion and a small chopped jicama root.
