Ingredients

1/2 cup cashews, soaked 2+ hours
1 cup water
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 cups organic corn kernels
1 cup chopped Sun-dried Tomatoes, rehydrated

Food Processor:

2 cups organic corn kernels
2 tsp dried dill
2 Tbsp fresh chives
2 cups water (as needed)

Instructions

1) After soaking the cashews, drain and rinse them.

2) Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl and cover with hot water.  Allow they to rehydrate while you get the rest of the recipe going.  Drain the water from the sun-dried tomatoes when ready to add them.  They should be soft.

3) In the blender combine the cashews, water, apple cider vinegar, smoked paprika, onion and garlic powder, black pepper, salt and cayenne.  Blend until creamy and you don’t notice any gritty feeling.

4) Add 2 cups of corn and the sun-dried tomatoes.  Blend until smooth and then pour into the food processor that is fitted with the “S” blade.

5) Add the additional 2 cups of corn, dill, chives and water.

6) Process until broken down but leave chunks for texture.
Eat right away or store in the fridge for 3-5 days.  You can warm the soup by placing it in the dehydrator at 145 degrees for 30 minutes or until the right temp is reached.  It also helps to heat the serving dish before adding the soup.

About Amie Sue

I am a certified raw food chef but my real training takes place daily in my home kitchen where I unleash my passion for preparing healthy dishes.  I personally believe that each person needs to discover how to feed their own body.  We don't live in a world were one diet fits all.  We are all so unique and individualized and our daily menus must cater to that if we want to live in optimal health.  I strongly believe that we need to add in fresh, whole foods into our day to day eating and in return this will automatically start to crowd out the not so ... optimal foods.  It is all a journey and that journey ought to be fun, exciting and filled with great tasting food!  Through my recipes I hope you find inspiration that will make your journey a positive and healthy one!
