Recipe Directions

Deborah has uses homemade broth which is awesome, but boiled. To re-create broth taste, I soaked mushrooms in shoyu for about an hour (it’s the only thing i thought of to make a base – if your not down with shoyu skip the soak). Put the water, onion, red pepper, carrots, and mushrooms in a food processor (you can use a blender – mine is just old and not so good). Puree till pretty smooth, then put in all the other ingredients, give it a spin, and adjust to taste. I ended up adding a bit more salt because I got some rind in with the zest on accident.

You can also added extra shredded carrot at the end for more chunk, or some zucchini noodles to make it heartier.

This is my first posted recipe, so sorry if anything is done poorly! Also, I soaked more mushrooms than I used and made a fantabuolus soup i will post later (again, only if you are down with shoyu!)

Sid23's Thoughts

By sid23

This is a raw re-make of Deborah Madison’s Carrot-Red Pepper soup (one of my fav’s pre-raw) and tastes pretty similar. It’s light (no oil) and the dill and orange shine and gives it a unique kick. A little bit sweet, but not overpowering.

yeah i bet kelp or something would work. Maybe i could make it without any mushrooms or anything and see if i can pinpoint an element it needs-detective style cooking! That might work.

Whatever you can think for a brothy flavor. That's the thing...Deborah Madison's recipe doesn't have mushrooms in the main stuff, it's just all I could think of. Maybe sun dried tom's? I don't know...whatever people use instead of bullion. I am kinda new to raw still. Maybe kelp? Something savory...

Blueyz- If you think curry would go with orange go for it. The orange is strong.

This looks great(I also love the bowl) and sounds like something good for the cool weather that has kicked in here. I also like the kelp/c.oil idea because I don't do soy either. I wonder how this would go with more curry flavors instead of the dill and parsley. I'm all about heat in the cold weather, if not temp then spice wise!

That's great Izhpt! I will try the kelp sub for shoyu. I have a bag of kelp and haven't really known when to use it.

MsDerious- I used fresh

Daniefon- I have no clue if cilantro would go with it! You could try it; I know if I make something and it doesn't taste right I can usually doctor it up and fix it. Or just put cilantro in a cup of it and not in a whole batch.

This is wonderful! Today I am sick so I was really wanting soup. I made a few changes to help a low thyroid and it was wonderful. I had no orange so i subbed lemon. No soy for thyroid so I added 1T kelp and i added warm water and 1 T coconut oil. The soup was a little warm-well under 118 degrees, but the spice and slightly warm temp soothed my ills. Thank you. I ate the whole recipe for lunch.

Is there another herb that would go good with this besides dill? I don't like dill at all! What about cilantro, would that be ggod?

Yeah, I got this at a dollar store in upstate NY. It's actually a bowl but I also got a yellow angry faced mug that looks like it's trying to poo and a happy in=love faced mug that's white with hearts. I already took pics of other things I am going to try to post as recipes, but I will make it a point to feature the face-dinnerware next time!

I used to have a mug like that, gosh I wish I knew where it went. Anyway, can't wait to try this. Love red pepper soup and this one has no added fat in avo or oils, thanks!
