Recipe Directions

Place everything in the blender starting with the cucumber and peppers and blend until smooth.
Serve cold with extra chunks of tomato, cucumber and avocado.

Kellymyra's Thoughts

This is something like an Energy Soup. Or you might call it a savoury green smoothie. I just call it it delicious and eat it all the time. Don’t worry too much about the amounts, I never measure, I just chop it up and blend. The capsicum (also known as bell pepper) and basil really make it, so make sure you don’t skip those. Serve with some herby flax crackers for extra crunch.

Tomato Basil Soup

This looked so yummy with the large avocado chunks that I just had to try it - and it was great! I did not have Tamari but it still tasted fine. However, I did something I would not necessarily repeat, I put a jalapeno pepper in it. I don't have much experience cooking with hot pepper, tried it before adding it and it seemed as harmless as bell pepper. Ha! The vitamix must have brought out all its force, or was it the seeds? In the end the soup had quite a fire to it!

i made this last night for dinna and it was good. i was so annoyed because the basil i was going to use was old, so i had to used dried basil and some fresh sage instead. i think it would have been better with the basil though. i had all the other ingredients though, thank heavens haha i would definitely cut back on the lemon juice (i'd use 1/2 a lemon, if that). my soup was very lemony so i had to balance it out with more tamari.

After much confusion on the capsicum/bell pepper malarchy I have updated the recipe to include both.
I'm so jealous of you all over in the states now! Capsicum/bell pepper, basil ans tomato season is over in NZ.

just whipped some up for my mom. Had everything but the spinach on hand, and it was great. Mom's not a raw foodist but she was "pleasantly surprised."
And on the capsicum tip, I looked it up on wikipedia expecting something exotic and/or crazy and was like "it's just a red pepper!" lol.

i was at the restaurant "thrive" in seattle (a new raw food restaurant) and tried a soup called "sweet surrender" that is quite similar to this. it inspired me to make this recipe. thank you!

Oh hah yes, I'm in New Zealand. We call them capsicum. Same as a bell pepper.
Miso and Tamari subsititues: I think dulse would be good. It just gives it a bit of a salty hearty flavour.

any thoughts on what to substitute for miso and tamari due to soy allergy...thinking dulse might work just as well, just wouldn't add the same consistency? thanks!

Capsicum is the genus name, but for the rest of us non-botanists....those are known as peppers.

In the US and Canada we refer to capsicum as pepper . . . here in the Deep South even more specifically as bell pepper.
