Variations on Tomato Soup 1

I have two recipes for tomato soup that I love, so I figured I might as well merge them into yet another fabulous creamy tomato soup recipe.  And it turned out delicious! I hope this inspires you to play with the recipe based on what ingredients you have on hand and what flavorings you prefer.  Here are a few raw soup guidelines that can help you in your creativity: 1. Use a tasty liquid base, like coconut water, orange juice and water, an herbal elixir tea, or at least lightly warmed water 2. Don’t blend the soup until smooth.  A […]

Pizza Soup & Salsa Soup

I had a lot of fun experimenting with making raw soups during our spring equinox cleanse and here are 2 more that we really liked: Pizza Soup and Salsa Soup! Pizza Soup Juice 1 zucchini (wow yumm!), a slice of onion & 1 red bell pepper. Blend that juice with 2-3 tomatoes, 2 Tbsp Hemp Seeds, 1 Tbsp Oregano, 1 Tbsp Fiesta Mole & about 1/2-1 Cup warmed water (optional for a warmer soup). Top with sweet baby tomatoes and green onions (or any other pizza-like toppings you desire). Tip: In place of the warm water I used a decoction […]

Tomato Carrot Hemp Soup 1

This was another winning raw soup (and often requested recipe) from our 10-day Spring Equinox Cleanse.  I did quite a few alterations to a recipe I got from Kristen Suzanne’s  book.  I think my version tastes AWEsome! It’s a nice lighter soup – not too creamy (as many raw soups tend to be). Like I’ve said before about raw soups – they taste better when you top them with something extra – like chopped green onion, nutritional yeast flakes, hemp seeds, chopped apples, chopped tomatoes, chopped avocado, chopped bell pepper and live sprouts.  Give your tastebuds multiple flavors to taste […]

Kale Apple Soup 1

This is one of the soups we declared a winner during our 10 day Spring Equinox Cleanse.  We’re serving it at our monthly Raw Superfood Dinner & Class and will definitely be repeating it for our personal dinners often. This comes from an awesome raw cookbook I just received called .  It’s co-written by Cherie Soria who is the founder and director of Living Light Culinary Arts Institute where many famous raw chefs go for training.  And it’s really well done, so you may be seeing more excerpts from this book again soon. Before I get to the recipe, I’ll […]

Creamy Fiesta Mole Gazpacho

I just merged two of my favorite raw tomato soup recipes into a super-delicious creamy gazpacho (essentially a Spanish style of cold tomato soup).  Summertime means an abundance of tomatoes, garlic and basil from our garden which all went into this refreshing soup.  Here’s the recipe along with tips for optional adjustments based on what you’ve got available or what new flavors you crave. Oh, and here are the original recipes I merged into this one: Fiesta Mole Soup and Creamy Tomato Soup *** Creamy Fiesta Mole Gazpacho 3 Cups Blended Tomatoes (about 4 medium tomatoes quartered and blended until […]

Raw Alive Chili 1

This raw chili makes eating raw dinner in the colder winter weather quite enjoyable.  There’s nothing like a creamy, spicy, delicious soup to make my toes tingle and my body feel all warm, snuggly, and with this raw chili, quite ALIVE! Here’s the recipe that will make about 4 cups worth of chili: *** 2 Cups Blended Tomatoes (add in a few sun dried tomatoes for some extra tangy zip) 1 Avocado 2 Celery Stalks


Creamy Tomato Soup

Mmmmm, creamy tomato soup that doesn’t have any dairy products in it and can be frozen for easy storage and later use.  YAY! This recipe comes from Matt Amsden’s and I really like it paired with his Famous Onion Bread (also seen in the picture).  Such a simple recipe is easy for you to play with by changing up the herbs in it (try cilantro, dill, oregano, rosemary, and/or tarragon) and by adding in additional ingredients (like chopped tomatoes so it’s a chunky soup). OK, enough about how to customize, here’s the recipe so you can get on with it! […]

Watermelon Gazpacho

More kudos to Sarma and Matthew for an outstanding flavor-packed recipe.  This one didn’t require any changes (though you could add a little Fiesta Mole Powder if you want to “soup” it up with extra superfoods). What a pun! I usually only like my watermelon straight up, but this is one watermelon recipe that’s worth making, eating, and repeating.  The blend of flavors does a beautiful dance on my tongue, starting with the sweetness of the watermelon and ending with the gentle heat of the ginger and jalapeno.  The more you dice the ingredients to the same size pieces, the […]

Thai Coconut Bliss Soup

Oh my goodness this soup is delicious!  When I make a raw dinner for friends I often start with this soup, then serve Thai Veggie Wraps and finish with the Coconut-Hazlenut Chia Pudding.  Yummy! I’ve found this soup will also freeze well – just freeze the marinated mushrooms separately.  This recipe comes straight from one of my favorite raw info/uncook books:  by Natalia Rose. Makes about 5 cups serving 2-5 people depending on how much of a meal you make it Marinated Mushroom Topping 1 Cup Shiitake Mushrooms thinly sliced 3 Tbsp Fresh Basil chopped 1/4 Cup Lime Juice 1 […]
