Raw Tomato & Red Pepper Soup

Friday, August 30th, 2013

 

 

This is a quick and easy Blender Soup that tastes so fresh. The orange juice brings out the natural sweetness in the peppers and tomatoes. Pair with fresh fruit for a light lunch or a late dinner.

Ingredients

1 large or 2 small red peppers
3 medium tomatoes and 1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 small cucumber
1/2 celery stalk
1/2 cup unsweetened Almond Milk
Juice from 1/2 small orange
1 tsp. nutritional yeast
1 tsp. sea salt
pinch of onion powder
4 or 5 basil leaves (I used Thai basil, but sweet basil is good too)

Blend all ingredients except the basil until smooth. Chop the basil and sprinkle on top of the soup. Serve immediately or recover and refrigerate. Makes 4 servings.

*I used all organic produce, and so my vegetables are smaller than conventional grown produce, but more flavorful.
