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.
Appliances used: Vitamix blender
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:
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
2 tbsp flaxseed oil
1 clove of garlic
Blend till nice and creamy
I pour this on a nice salad of mixed greens, sliced small heirloom tomatoes, 2 chopped green onion and a small chopped jicama root.
