A delicious raw soup


Raw soups are super easy to make and are extremely healthy for you. But in the past when I tried to make raw soups they never tasted great and I was always disappointed. Lately I have been trying to incorporate more fresh (raw) foods into our diet and decided to give raw soups another try. I found this recipe online and decided to try it because of the simple ingredients that I had all on hand. This time I was not disappointed and it tasted great! Sashenka loved it and surprisingly so did my belle-mère (mother in law sounds prettier in French then it does in Russian or English, meaning ‘beautiful mother’). This soup had a lot of flavor and tasted great being room temp. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
