Overview

Found in:
This raw creamy carrot soup uses cashews as the cream base. It tastes surprisingly like traditional soup - but without the dairy. A blender is required.

Ingredients

Nutrition Facts

Directions

  • 1. Throw all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend up 'til nice and smooth and well mixed. You can let the soup blend in the blender for a little extra time so that the heat of the blades and the friction actually warm up this delicious, creamy raw soup. Blend until very creamy and smooth.
  • 2. Transfer raw creamy carrot soup to a bowl.
  • 3. Garnish with whatever you like! I simply sprinkled my soup with pepper and a tiny carrot garnish. Eat immediately.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This recipe is super simple and requires only a blender to make.

It's also very quick to pull together if you have carrots in the fridge, as well as some cashews in the cupboard. And really, who doesn't have carrots lying somewhere in the fridge? They last for a long time and are quite inexpensive. And you should always keep some spare cashews around!

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

I think I've put too many cashew nuts as it turned out a bit too sweet, more of a carrot cake taste rather than soup. Solved it on the spot with black pepper and pickles, although next time will keep a closer eye on how many nuts I put.

So simple & easy and yet so very delicious!! Definitely going to be a regular on the diner menu for me :) The hot water tip is a good one as it gives it just enough warmth. Thank you for another super recipe.

I love this idea. I like to add a couple teaspoons of nutritional yeast to give it a cheesy flavor along with garnishing with crushed nuts and chia seeds.

I'm sad to say that I couldn't eat this. I've been trying out tons of raw recipes since i went vegan, (and I've loved everything else) and I was so pumped to try the soups! Soups are one of my FAVORITE non raw things, and I just didn't vibe with this at all. I didn't like the texture and it was just sooo cold! Feeling really bummed, but I'll keep trying and trying to devise my own recipes! I really want to make a move into fully raw, I just need to have a tool box full of recipes first that way I don't end up starving myself!

I start with boiling water , then I added a 1/4 cup chopped onion, a half tablespoon of grated ginger, then the carrots, raw cashews (make sure they are raw, not toasted)' and the salt and a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper and curry powder to taste. Blend on super high speed. When done, the soup should be steaming.

Hi Harper!

Thanks for your note - re: texture, do you have a high-speed blender? Was it too chunky? Did you let it blend long enough?

I did an additional 2/3-3/4 cup lite coconut milk, a touch of curry powder, black pepper, and a small clove of garlic. I wanted to add a bit of ginger but mine was freezer-burned :-/

I left it so long in the blender my soup was actually hot! LOL
Love it, thank you saw much for your inspiration Miss Rawtarian =)

looks delicious! I made something similar with pumpkin, ginger and some coconut milk.

you mentioned that you use a high speed blender...do you think it would also work with an immersion blender? my countertop blender just died and I am arguing with myself if an immersion blender isnt enough...

Would like to try this but a bit dubious about cold soup! Am going to try and do 30 days raw in January so guess I need to get used to it! Wondering if I could heat this up in my thermomix to 37°?

Hi Claire! I usually let my soups blend a little longer than normal, and to me they're not really cold, they're more like room temp or a bit warmer -- now, a cold soup straight out of the fridge, I couldn't do that!

Have not tried it yet, but it reminds me of my favorite soup in the Moosewood Cookbook . . . Some other things I may add which were in Moosewood are garlic and onion and with a sprinkle of Nutmeg and cinnamon. I will be trying it tomorrow. :)

Heat destroys enzymes. High speed blenders an juicers literally rip the enzymes apart, rendering far less nutrition available.
I would like to try it, but using a my Champion juicer - slow speed, no heat!!!

Do you think it would work with macadamia nuts? My stomach does not like cashews :(

Hi Becky, yes macadamia nuts or pine nuts would work fine instead of the cashews. I like to soak my macadamia nuts for at least 20 minutes and rinse them before using

I'm never going to be afraid to try your soup recipes again. I remember reading the mushroom soup and thinking "just mushrooms, water, & cashews with some salt? Umm... Well, it's got some rave reviews so I guess it wouldn't hurt to try it". I fell in love with your carrot soup just like I did the mushroom soup. Further comfort that as long as I have cashews and some veggies on hand I will always have a quick supper!

Thanks very much for this!

I wanted to avoid nuts and wanted some other flavours so added 1 clove of garlic, a tiny bit of ginger and a bit of onion, along with the salt, so I can't really view this recipe at all. But the carrot, blending and salt, all great.

Thank you for the idea! Didn't think it would be so easy to have a lovely raw dish.

Hi Jessica,

Glad to have inspired you to make your own raw carrot soup :) I think ginger would go really nicely.
