Happy New Year! We’ll be starting the New Year off with this raw soup with tomatoes, red pepper and herbs to help cleanse and detox the days gone by.
Similar to gazpacho, this raw tomato and red pepper soup is light and refreshing. Plus, it’s an alkalizing, anti-inflammatory soup, and full of beneficial ingredients that your body will thank you for.
Let the power of red work wonders for your health. Each ingredient has its own special nutritional benefit, all of which contain plenty of vitamins, minerals, fiber and some proteins.
Prep: Quarter your tomatoes. Core and de-seed your bell pepper, cut into slices.
Puree: Place all ingredients in food processor/blender and blend until a soup consistency. Taste for flavor adding extra ingredients to suit your taste.
Enjoy as is or place in the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour before eating.
Makes about 3 cups, serves 2 – 3
Serve: Place in individual bowls and top with a squeeze of lemon juice over top and some chopped chives, parsley or basil. Sliced or diced avocado is also excellent adding a little creaminess!
Would be great with julienned or spiralized zucchini noodles.
Feel free to gently warm this soup!
