Yes yes yes! It’s more raw vegan goodness comin’ atcha!
It tastes like heaven on earth, the freshness and flavor of this creamy raw tomato soup simply explodes out of this dish.
Other than making glorious smoothies, making raw vegan soups is another of my favorites.
And it’s a favorite because it’s just so easy! And I’m a big fan of easy.
Here we have a few simple ingredients, you chop them up (any which way, they’re just getting blended anyway!), throw ’em in a blender and there you have it!
A thick, creamy delicious soup that’s ideal as an appetizer.
Or, you know, you can just have it in place of a salad anytime you don’t feel like doing too much chewing.
Yip – it is the lazy person’s food. And I relate because sometimes salads just are too much chewing (and also….I’m lazy sometimes).
With just enough spice added to provide the va-va-voom to these fresh ingredients, some cherry tomatoes for garnishing (or to mix in with the soup as well, fresh crunchy cherry tomatoes are just so good), and you have yourself a gourmet starter course.
This is a soup that you want to eat right away. I am not one of those who understands the ‘make it now eat it days later’ mentality when it comes to really fresh ingredients.
It just doesn’t work. Fresh, uncooked ingredients oxidize….quickly.
They’re healthiest when they’re freshest and they’re also the most delicious.
I used to make myself raw soups when I was working in a corporate office. I had already bought myself a blender especially for the office, that lived in the office kitchen and I would just take the ingredients along with me, and blend it up at lunchtime.
Voila! Easy and delicious.
