Carrot Ginger Soup with Curried Raisin Relish

By , On , In Raw, Entrees, Recipes, Soups, All Recipes

Today we have a delicious soup recipe for you. This Carrot Ginger Soup is quite simple to make and it’s loaded with life-giving nutrition. 

This soup is raw vegan so no cooking is necessary – just a quick mix in the blender and you’re good to go! No dishes, no scrubbing, no big mess! Both the soup and the relish are easy and quick to make (you can whip up both in under 30 mins). 

For many years I was a bit turned off by the “idea” of raw soup recipes. Somehow, they just didn’t look that appealing. However, after experimenting with a few different recipes I got excited about the fact that raw soups could, in fact, be savoury, creamy and so delicious.

Personally, I love thick, blended soups, but I think it’s really important to give them a touch of texture for garnish (such as nuts, seeds, sprouts, or what have you on hand). For that reason, I suggest that you don’t skimp on the curried raisin relish. It adds so much character to the dish! 

The Vegetable Stock Upgrade

In this recipe, you will be using fresh carrot juice as the base instead of vegetable stock. Store-bought vegetable stocks are mostly packed with an unnecessary preservative such as MSG, “natural flavourings,” and who knows what else! If you are into juicing try to experiment with creating your own combination for the base of nutrient-rich raw soups by blending your favourite juices with other ingredients – such as nut mylks, avocado, citrus, herbs, sea salt, and spices. Beets, celery, carrots, bell pepper, fennel, and even orange, ginger, and fresh turmeric all make great juicing ingredients for a raw soup base.  

Now let’s begin…
