It’s easy to say that a nutritious bowl of raw vegetables is nutritious. How do you turn a bunch of raw vegetables into a delicious dish, though? Some people say that it’s easier said than done, but say, “No problem.” If you have some vegetables and don’t want to eat another salad on the raw vegan diet, a great alternative is a raw soup. Additionally, this soup is a great alternative if you have extra zucchini don’t want to eat zoodle dishes any more.
Just like making a smoothie, all you have to do is cut up your vegetables and blend them together. Unlike a smoothie, you will add a few things that would not taste great slurping through a straw. For example, this raw soup contains fresh dill, garlic cloves, coconut aminos, and sea salt. The best advice we can give you is to use the fresh dill, not dried dill. The soup will be much less aromatic and flavorful without that fresh herb. We promise you that it is 100% worth it to seek out fresh dill, even if you have the dried version in your spice rack.
One piece of advice that we have for you is that you may want to wait to make this soup until the weather is a little warmer. It can be very refreshing when the sun is out. A pro raw vegan tip is to blend the soup for a few minutes on high to naturally warm it up. Don’t worry, this does not cook the vegetables; rather, the high-speed revolutions can naturally warm up the blended mixture. This is just something to consider if you take a liking to raw soups like this one.
- Prep Time:10m
- Total Time:10m
- 4 c filtered water
- 1 c homemade almond milk
- 1/2 c raw cashews (soaked for four hours then drained)
- 1 c fresh dill
- 4 medium zucchini, roughly chopped
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp. coconut aminos
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- Before you add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender, make sure to drain the cashews. You don\'t want that soaking water in your raw soup.
- Start blending the ingredients on low speed and gradually increase the speed to high. This process should take about one minute. Leave the soup blending on high for a couple minutes to naturally warm up the soup.
- Pour into bowls and enjoy immediately. Feel free to top the soup with some microgreens, sprouts, fresh herbs, raw nuts, or some raw seeds.
