Raw Food Recipe: Cream of Tomato Soup
I was practicing my recipes for my upcoming Introduction to Raw Foods Class and I made the most delicious cream of mushroom soup. This got me thinking that it must be easy to switch a few ingredients around and create other ‘cream of…’ soups. So here’s my first one – Cream of Tomato Soup.
This recipe is super rich and very satisfying, perfect if you fancy some comforting on a chilly day, or some sunshine for your belly.
1 cup of cashews – soaked for at least 30 minutes
1 cup of water – or for desired consistency, 1 cup creates quite a thick soup – just how I like it!
1 1/2 cups of tomatoes (I used cherry and plum tomatoes)
8 sundried tomatoes - soaked for at least 30 minutes
A pinch of salt and pepper to taste (optional)
Blender – a high powered blender creates a more creamy soup
Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until creamy
If you want a warmer soup, you can use warm water in the recipe, or if you have a high powered blender you can leave it running until the soup is warm
