Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup

aka ‘Don’t spill this on your carpet because there are mad amounts of beta-carotene and it is a potent natural color.’

Here in San Antonio we are having cooler weather.  Not cold.  Not even cool.  Cooler, as in 70 is cooler than 95.  So, I’m pretending it is fall and eating fall foods, like soup.

I modified this recipe from Raw Food, Real World. As a side note, I have yet to make a bad recipe from that book.  I just requested it from the library again and am going to copy down some more recipes.  I highly recommend this book.

Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup

  • 1.5 cups carrot juice (I juiced mine, but could use store-bought if not concerned about the ‘rawness’ of the dish)
  • 1/2 medium avocado
  • 2 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • dash of cayenne and salt to taste

Blend all ingredient (I love my vita-mix!) until creamy and smooth.

I topped with additional coconut and avocado.  Very good – I loved the nuanced flavor the ginger, coconut and cayenne added.

Anyone have a raw soup recipe to recommend?
