Vegan MoFo #10: Raw Vegan Carrot Ginger Soup
Aaaaah Monday! Soup will make it better, right? I'm kidding, really. I don't mind Mondays, but I wouldn't mind having a weekend extension. I'm not kidding about the soup, though. I'm totally on a soup binge right now. It's a wonderful, warming way to stay healthy and raw when the weather turns cold. And it's SO EASY. Perfect for weekday meals.
Carrot Ginger Soup
1 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup cashews
1 small clove garlic
1 teaspoon diced ginger
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
1 cup water
Blend in a high speed blender until smooth and warm.
This is great with crumbled up flax crackers stirred into it right before serving. For a high raw option this would be delicious served with a scoop of quinoa or brown rice.
Due to my current obsession with soup I'll be featuring a few more recipes this week. This is the first time I've been into making raw soup, so it's fun new territory to explore. Hope your Monday is fantastic.
