Course: Lunch or Dinner
Cuisine: Raw Vegan
Prep Time: 10-15 min
- 400g butternut squash
- 50g diced carrots
- 1 tbsp. almond butter or tahini
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ tsp Celtic sea salt, optional
- 50g of chopped parsley (half you need for the garnish)
- 2tbsp of nutritional yeast
- 1 cup water or raw nut milk
You can use plain spring and warm water so that the soup, although raw, is warm. Consuming warm soup increases digestion. I do not advise using cool or cold water. Room temperature water is ok, but it is also good if you want to heat it to 40-45 degrees. Overheating can impact some of the ingredients, and so to say, cook them. Some high-speed blenders heat the ingredients from the speed of blending. You can replace the water with raw nut milk if you want a more dense and nutritious soup.
Almond Butter or Tahini
You can use almond butter or tahini according to your preferences or what is available in the pantry. This adds creaminess to the texture of the raw soup and gives it the fragrance of nuts. It also adds essential nutrients to the soup and makes it denser in calories and nutrition, which offers that filling sensation.
Here comes the magic ingredient of every raw kitchen. Nutritional yeast is packed with vitamins, especially B12, which is hard to get on a raw vegan diet. It is beneficial for your overall well-being and also for your beauty, enhancing hair, nails, and skin texture. You can add some of it to the mix and sprinkle more on top.
You can add this herb to the mix, adding extra freshness and vitamins. It also has significant antioxidant properties that contribute to the recipe’s overall healthfulness. Parsley reduces inflammation naturally and purifies the blood.
If you love spicy food, you can experiment by changing the ingredients and adding something more with flavor. Some ideas include fresh ginger, marinated mushrooms, cumin powder, black pepper, and more.
- Place all of the sliced ingredients into a blender.
- Blend all of your ingredients until the mix is smooth
- Pour into bowls or nice soup plates and garnish with some toppings.
Some ideas for toppings here: chopped green parsley, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, some sliced raw crackers, or some pomegranate seeds for added flavor and color! Add some raw vegan cream as coconut cream if you want to enhance the thickness and the creaminess of the recipe.
- Enjoy this fragrant mixture of rich nourishment and delicate taste!
