This is something like an Energy Soup. Or you might call it a savoury green smoothie. I just call it it delicious and eat it all the time. Don’t worry too much about the amounts, I never measure, I just chop it up and blend. The capsicum (also known as bell pepper) and basil really make it, so make sure you don’t skip those. Serve with some herby flax crackers for extra crunch.
To celebrate the onset of summer produce I threw these few ingredients together for lunch today and it turned out great. It just tastes like summer. And because all the ingredients are really juicy you don’t even need a dressing. I found it perfect just as is.
This is a fantastic winter salad with amazing colour and a good sweet/savory balance. It’s full of vitamin C to keep away colds in the chilly months. It’s good to use a mandoline to help you to slice things finely which brings out the flavour more. Always try to use organic ingredients where possible.
A lot of raw vegans find it difficult to keep warm in the colder months. This soup uses a lot of warming spices to heat you up from the depths of your belly. I made it in the middle of a hailstorm, parked myself by the heater and got toastie.
