Directions

  • 1. Throw all ingredients (except last 1/2 cup of red peppers) in a high-speed blender and blend up 'til nice and smooth and well mixed. You can let this raw red bell pepper soup recipe blend in the Vitamix or Blendtec blender for a little extra time so that the heat of the blades and the friction actually warm up this delicious, creamy raw red bell pepper soup recipe.
  • 2. Transfer raw red pepper soup to a bowl. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of diced red peppers and mix gently with a spoon.
  • 3. Garnish with whatever you like! I simply sprinkled my soup with some dried basil. Eat immediately.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Big thanks to Julie K and her comment on my raw tomato soup recipe for inspiring me to modify one of my existing raw soup recipes to come up with this super creamy raw red bell pepper soup! This recipe is super simple and requires only a blender to make.

It's also very quick to pull together if you have two red peppers in the fridge, as well as some cashews in the cupboard.

By the way, red bell peppers are sweet. So do not use green bell peppers for this recipe since they aren't sweet enough!

This raw red pepper soup recipe makes a nice big bowl for one person. :)

Hi Adam, using roasted red pepper would no longer be raw, but if you are okay with that then I presume it would turn out okay. It is very flavorful on its own though, and in my opinion roasted is not necessary.

A great recipe! I tried this today, and loved it! I am incorporating more raw foods into my diet with the goal of eventually going totally raw. This was so yummy and nourishing. I can't wait to try more recipes.

Raw red pepper soup recipe

Made 3 serves of this for a spring lunch today. Husband and guest both liked it. My husband says it reminds him of a summer gazpacho. Because it warmed a bit in the vitamix, I definitely found it very tasty!!!

Thanks so much for this recipe! Question: i want to use this soup for lunch, but i saw that for shelf life you put: eat immediately. Is there any way i can keep it long enough for lunch?

Hi Erika! You can keep in fridge for up to two days, but I like eating immediately because I don’t really like cold soup straight out of the fridge :) You can always blend it up again to warm it up, or just place in pot on stove to take chill off (to get it to room temp) – if you can put you pinkie in it then it is still raw temperature :)

If I don't have a Vitamix, could I use a food processor? Do you think that I should soak the cashews for a few hours to make blending them easier?

Hi Kara,

Ideally this should be made in a blender, but I think what you suggested is a reasonable solution. It would get quite as smooth though.

Make sure that your cashews aren't too wet - then the soup will be too runny. So do pat them dry before using

Tried the soup and was pleasantly surprised at how great it tasted. I also tried the carrot ginger and the French onion and loved them also. I'm sold on the raw soups.

Love it! I actually had a few dehydrated red peppers for that "roasted" taste. Plus I added some raw corn on the cob. Yum. Great site.

I'm just starting a raw 'til 4 diet and have been looking for new things to try! This is delightful! I added a pinch of garlic powder to mine, but it was wonderful beforehand! (I just love garlic, haha)

Hi Xari!

1. You may find this podcast helpful: http://www.therawtarian.com/rfp05-nut-substitutions (you can download it in iTunes - look for "raw food podcast" - episode 5)

2. Generally, these groups of nuts can be substituted for one another:
creamy nuts: cashews, macadamia nuts, pine nuts, etc.
flour-like nuts: almonds, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, etc.
oily nuts: walnuts, pecans, etc.
