Corn and Red Pepper Chowder

A week or so ago, I attempted my first ever raw soup. I used Ani Phyo's recipe for sweet corn chowder from Ani's Raw Food Kitchen, but wanted to add a little kick to it. I'm not sure if I made the original right or not, but I decided to add red pepper and extra seasonings (cayenne anyone??).

Now that I think about it, it would have looked nice to sprinkle it with cayenne!

Anyway, the soup was awesome. I wish I could tell you the amounts of whatever I used but I just kept throwing stuff in until I was happy with the final product. That's one of my favorite things about eating raw--being able to make and remake and change and undo and redo what you've done. It's great. Because everything is so fresh and not altered, you can just do whatever you want! So that's what I did and this is what I got. I called it "Corn and Red Pepper Chowder."

Have any of you made raw soups? What is your favorite soup??

(we had "ITS HOT" side salads with our soup)

I love a creamy soup! I have that book, but I haven't found it since we moved. I'll have to dig it out. Since getting my Vitamix, I love to blend up tomato soup or an avocado-based green soup. Red pepper is a fave, but they're SO expensive!

I made a raw "pumpkin pie" soup that was amazing. This looks excellent. :)

That book is on my wish list. Your soup and salad look like the perfect meal!

I love raw soups, and usually go for something thick and creamy with lots of herbs:)
