Creamy Raw Vegan Sugar Plum Tomato & Carrot Soup

One of the great things about blended soup is the clean-out-the-fridge factor.  Have a little veg that's not quite fresh enough for a salad?  Throw it in the blender and create something tasty, packed with nutrition, and easy to digest.  That's how this raw soup came about.  I had some baby carrots and sugar plum tomatoes that needed to be used and happen to be on a blending spree today.  The result is a warm summery soup, light yet satisfying. 

In your high speed blender:

1 cup baby carrots
1 cup sugar plum tomatoes
1/2 avocado
1 tablespoon miso
1 to 1 1/2 cup warm water
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Blend until smooth and warm to the touch.  Garnish with more red pepper flakes depending on how much spice you like.  Makes one bowl or two cups.

Portland took a break from summer today.  I even had to wear a sweater when I went out for a walk this afternoon.  The pepper in this soup was nice and warming.  This soup would also be nice chilled for those of you having a hot summer.  You could also sub out the red pepper flakes with other fresh herbs like basil or thyme for a more cooling flavor.  I happen to like a lot of spice no matter what the outside temp.

Happy Sunday! ummm... I mean Monday!  Haha!


  1. what a delicious sounding soup! and that color! gorgeous!

  2. Beautiful soup! The weather has been crazy so far this year! Sweaters in June are not supposed to happen! Hope it warms up for you :)

  3. Hmmm sugar plum tomatoes - I don't think I've ever heard of them! The soup definitely sounds awesome though.

  4. sounds pretty good. it's not a raw green soup, that's a plus for me. i think miso makes raw soups much better. sorry it's so cold there, wish i could send you a few degrees! or come visit and cool off.


  6. your soup looks so amazing. I cannot wait to try your recipe.
    Peace and Raw Health,
