Now that the weather is warming up, we can post more raw soup recipes. Raw soup seems like an odd choice, but it is a very popular dish in Spain during the summer. Gazpacho is a classic cold Spanish soup that’s typically made with tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, red onion, and garlic. The raw soup in this recipe doesn’t contain any of those ingredients, so it’s a modern spin on an old classic.
Raw soup isn’t for everyone, and that’s perfectly acceptable. It is, however, an easy meal option if you are following the raw vegan diet. Just like a smoothie, add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender, blend until smooth, and enjoy. We do suggest that you allow the ingredients to blend for at least one minute. A little raw vegan hack for warming a raw soup is allowing the ingredients to blend for about three minutes on high. The revolutions will naturally give the soup a little warmth, although you may not require warmth with this recipe. You may even see some steam!
The base of this raw soup is carrots, apple, and avocado. The avocado provides a creaminess that you don’t typically get from a cold soup or gazpacho recipe. Apple, carrots, and avocado don’t make the soup, but the remaining spices do. In fact, this recipe has an impressive ingredient list, using ginger, curry powder, ground coriander, nutritional yeast, dates, cumin, and more. As with any recipe like this, give it a quick taste test once the blending process is complete and adjust the seasonings as needed. We hope you love it, and give us some love in the comments or share it on social media if you make it! Don’t forget to sprinkle some freshly chopped chives on top for added flavor!
