Vegetarian Curry Soup

We took a trip to a Farmers market this morning to get our weekly veggies.  On our way out, there was a woman selling food.  I tried her soup and it was pretty tasty!  Yup, you guessed it!  It was so good I had to whip up a soup of my own for dinner!  I hope you like it as much as I did!

Day 10 Raw Journey; Raw Tomato Soup

Sitting by the cozy pellet stove, watching the snowfall, I thought tonight would be a perfect soup night!

I have a vitamix and making soups in it is very easy.  If you do not have one, you could make this in a blender.  It should warm slightly by putting your blender on high-speed for about 5 or 6 minutes.

The point of “raw” is to not destroy the enzymes by cooking the foods you eat.  As long as food is not heated over 115 degrees, it is still considered raw since the enzymes remain.

I found this super awesome recipe on a raw food site and plan to make some more of their recipes!

Here is the link to the “Smokey Backyard Tomato Soup” I made, you can find the recipe there! ~ Rawfully Tempting ~

The only modification I made was that I added a dab of heavy cream and finished it off with basil and tomato on the top!  I had some leftover I plan on using as a tomato sauce!

Yum!

Vegetarian Black bean soup! OMG Delish!

I’m trying to ease my way back into a lacto-ovo vegetarian lifestyle.  I stumbled upon this recipe at the vitamix.com web site.  It could easily be made using a food processor or blender as well.  I’m a big fan of black beans and thought this would hit the spot since it’s been a bit nippy outside lately.

…Black beans, Garbanzo beans, jalapeano, yellow and red peppers, onion, scallion, cumin, uh-oh, need to pick up garlic and vegetable stock… to be continued…

VERY easy to make and DELISH!  Also amazing used as a ‘dip.’   I will definitely have to make this again!
