Was craving a zippy broccoli soup -- this is what I came up with. The jalapeno pepper and garlic give it some kick, so reduce the amounts if you prefer a more bland taste. Dehydrated mushrooms add a nice chewy texture -- but fresh mushroom work well too.
This recipe is based on one my friend Ali made. Hers was a non-raw version that tasted so good, I knew I could make it just as good raw-style. We got lucky on this one, just replacing a couple of ingredients and marinating the mushrooms instead of cooking them-- it's now one of our favorite things to eat! This was even a hit with our carnivorous family members-- a great crowd-pleaser! The peanut sauce is actually made with almond butter instead of peanuts because peanuts are not technically raw, but it tastes just like the real thing!
