Red Pepper Curry Soup

raw soup

Raw soups are extravagantly delicious. You just have to have the right recipe and everything will work out just fine. Here is a soup I found at The Sunny Raw Kitchen and it is absolutely delicious! And I am not the only one who thinks that. My mother and sister in-law have both tried it and of course Sashenka and they all agree that this is very tasty. I tweaked it a bit by adding some chopped ingredients on the top because Sashenka likes some texture in his soups and does not like them to be puree-like. In addition, I used pecans as sprinkles and walnuts in the soup itself. Oh and I did not have fresh basil and used dried instead. The soup would taste divine with fresh basil! Can’t wait till spring! Hope you enjoy!

Serves 3

1 ½ large red or yellow bell pepper
1 apple, peeled
1 small avocado or ½ large one
½ cup basil leaves
¼ cup walnuts
1 green onion
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon curry powder, or to taste
Salt, to taste
Dash cayenne
2 cups water, or until desired consistency is reached
A few pecans for toping

Save some chopped pieces of veggies and the pecans and blend the rest of the ingredients until smooth. Top with pecans and chopped veggies. Serve!
