I'd like to thank you all for your wonderful comments on my last post. I <3 all the vegan love :)
Yesterday I was really craving some soup, but I didn't have a lot of veggies in my fridge and remembered I saw this video, from which I got inspiration for this recipe. I know it's not the prettiest soup (read: it's the ugliest soup known to mankind. Mmm, brown soup) but seriously, it's sooo delicious. If you like carrots and ginger half as much as I do, I'd bet that you'd love this soup.
Carrot Ginger Soup
5-6 medium to large carrots
1 inch piece of ginger
1/2 of an avocado
cumin, to taste
pepper, to taste
sea salt, to taste
toppings: I used raw corn, home-grown sprouts and tomatoes which was deeeelish, but I bet bell peppers, red onion and some paprika would be really good on this too. Have fun with it!
Juice your carrots and ginger.* I also juiced a few pieces of kale but I doubt it would change the flavour if you didn't use it. In a blender or food processor (I used my Magic Bullet and it worked well for once!) blend together the juice, avocado, and seasonings. Pour into bowls and top with your toppings of choice.
*If you don't have a juicer, you could try blending the carrots and ginger with some water and straining it through a cheese cloth or nut milk bag. If you don't care about it being raw, then you could steam the carrots and blend them with some veggie broth instead of juicing.
What's your favourite raw food recipe? Have you ever tried raw soup?
