The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw tomato soup recipe - Does that sound tasty to you? For some reason I was really turned off by the idea of raw soups for a long time. For two years, actually! I was turned off of raw soups because I once made a raw vegan beet soup that was very gross and watery!

But I finally gave raw soups another go and was pleasantly--and I mean very pleasantly--surprised by my raw tomato soup recipe!

What I like about this recipe is that it's so easy. I mean, you've got tomatoes and cashews, basically. Can't get much easier than that!

A lot of other raw tomato soups call for avocados, but I like this recipe because I always have cashews on hand in my pantry so I can make it any time--rather than having to make sure I have a perfect avocado on hand.

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

Hmmmm - I've been looking at that psyllium husk bread you do with big eyes... but don't have a dehydrator yet and budget a bit tight for the next little while. What can you recommend that is super easy, savoury, and can be done with a blender only? Think I might be trying the red pepper soup next! Yum!

Hi! Thanks for this recipe. I've just started trying to be a bit healthier (in college, it's surprisingly easy to just eat oreos all the time) and this is the first raw recipe I've followed. It takes amazing! Thanks so much and I'll look for more recipes on your site. :)

Made 3 serves today for lunch for my husband and mum. Prepared in the vitamix. Easy and fast! Enjoyed by all. Only real comment is that it tasted much better with really ripe tomatoes, not those insipid ones from the supermarket...

I keep waiting to find that one recipe that I "only" give four stars to.... this isn't it. Absolutely fabulous! I added avocado, as well, as I had a perfectly ripe one "staring" at me. This recipe was SO good that I almost licked the bowl -- but then gave it to my cat. He licked it clean. This will definitely be a "go to" recipe!

My Polish grandmother used to make a beautiful tomato-based soup that I loved dearly as a child. This is so reminiscent of the taste - it almost brought tears to my eyes! I just added some dill and avocado on top. Beautiful and easy. Love it.

My friend and I are working to implement raw recipes into our diet, and attempted raw recipes for the first time tonight. We paired this soup with the Avocado Dulse salad also listed on your site. We did make a few adjustments to the recipe due to some comments we read. We prepared this as a doubled recipe and first we added fresh basil (that I grew myself) and we added half of an avocado. For beginners, this recipe was perfect and we both really enjoyed the outcome. Since we are still new to this, we are both missing the hot / cooked aspect of the soup, but I think as we dive more into raw food options, we will adjust. Can't wait to try more of your recipes! Next on our list is the mushroom soup!

I recently came off of a 40 day water only fast and have been looking for recipes like this to help me re-enter the food world. I added 1/2 a small avocado and chopped peppers for garnish. My tiny tummy can't take any more, but ohhhhhh am I looking forward to the next cashew based soup!!!! YUMMMMMMY

Hi Tavia,

Do not use almonds - they are too pulpy.

You can use cashews, macadamia nuts or 1/2 an avocado instead - all of these give a nice creaminess

We substitute sunflower seeds if we ran out of cashews. It makes a thicker soup, but not as sweet as with the cashews. We tried it with half cashews and half sunflower seeds, turned out excellent!
Thank you for wonderful recipes.
We have been doing raw for almost three years. I was taking $1000 of meds a month. Now, I do not take any medications.

I will definitely have to try this again during the summer when I can get fresh garden tomatoes. The ones I just used were pretty flavorless, so I ended up using more salt and some agave to give it any flavor.

I made this tomato soup tonight because I didn't have much energy to make anything else, lol. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this soup. I can honestly say with no doubt in my mind that this is the best tomato soup I have EVER had. No high fructose corn syrup, no sugar, a healthy and authentic taste- this was AWESOME. I do have to say however that I like a sweeter taste for tomato soup, so I added about a tsp of honey, and that really helped. I also added a dash of onion powder and 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes. This is by far one of the best soups I have ever had. Thanks SO MUCH Mrs. Rawtarian!!!!!!!! :):):) I cannot WAIT to try the other soups listed on this site. ~ Rachel

Is it okay to slightly warm the soup? I mean just a tad, until I'm used to eating it cold. I'm just trying to incorporate your fantastic recipes into my everyday eating. Going 80% raw and 20% cooked. You make all your recipes seem so effortless to make and in almost 5 or ten minutes for so many of them. I've read page upon pages of raw recipes, but none seem to compare with yours for quality and time.
Thank you

Hi Sandy,

If you let it run in the blender for longer than you would do a smoother (like an extra 2 minutes) it will warm up nicely!

Raw tomato soup recipe

5 out of 5

This soup recipe is so good! Often times I read recipes and have all but 1 or 2 of the ingredients and then give up. I had all the ingredients for this recipe and I just gobbled it down. I used 3 Roma tomatoes, a fat clove garlic, lukewarm water, the salt, and 2 sun dried tomatoes and the cashews. It was so flavorful and the chopped up tomatoes at the end were just right for a nice bite. The only thing I will do differently next time is to use a sliver of garlic and no salt because I discovered the sun dried tomatoes I used were packed in oil and salt! A sprinkle of chopped basil or cilantro would taste fresh! Thank you so much for all your simple, tasty recipes! One of my biggest pet peeves is eating bland food. I don't care how healthy it is- I won't just force it down my throat. I think that is one big reason people don't do well on some raw diets.

I'm completely addicted to this soup, I've eaten it practically every 2nd day for 3 weeks. I add a few more slices of sundried tomato and prefer a large piece of garlic, makes it spicier. If only I'd known years ago how easy it was to prepare something quick and super healthy. Thank you SO much for your amazing recipes, I will never get tired of them!

Amazing, and delicious!! I love how creative you can be with this and still have it come out yummy! I didn't have any cashews, or other nuts, or an avocado, BUT, having made tahini the other night one rounded soup spoon of it got plopped into the VitaMix. The creamy texture and nutty taste were perfect. Gotta try it with cashews, next time! Thanks for such a great site.

It is Raw Food Week in Des Moines, IA this week and a few girlfriends and I (who are in different stages of a full vegan or vegetarian lifestyle) committed to a week of going raw. I came across your website today and discovered this recipe. I was skeptical...okay really skeptical...but there were so many incredible comments so I figured why not. I had cashews and tomatoes around of course as the new raw girl that I am. So I went home right after work and whipped this recipe up. And let me tell you...it was FANTASTIC!! I can't believe how unbelievably delicious a soup could be from such simple and raw ingredients. It has genuinely opened my eyes to the wonderful dishes that can still be had while going raw. One of the most difficult transitions I have found in my journey to becoming fully vegan is my intimidation to foreign ingredients and recipes. This was an appreciated change of pace! Thank you so much for sharing all of these wonderful recipes and tips...I can't wait to try something else tomorrow!

I made this soup a couple of nights ago, and something came up and I was not able to eat it right away. So I placed it in my fridge thinking I will eat it for dinner the following day. When I got home I pulled out my soup, and decided to eat it cold, as our night here on my island have been really hot and humid. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this soup!!!!! It was not only creamy and tasty, but it was the perfect dish to combat the hot and humid weather we have be having lately on my tropical island of Guam. Thank you for such a simple and delicious dish. To compliment the tomato soup, I also had a cold side of your egg salad recipe...phenomenal!!!! There are two things that I find most amazing about both recipes is that they are both simple to make and require a few ingredients...pure genus!!!! Both the egg salad and tomato soup recipe are definitely keepers!!!!!! Thank you!!!!

Yum! I made a version of this today and loved it. I am not big on following measurements and I used cilantro instead of sun dried tomatoes. Basically I threw some tomatoes , garlic, cilantro, cashews and water in the blender and turned it on. The result; heaven. Can't wait to try the red pepper (capsicum) soup next.
Thank you for the inspiration. This is my fave recipe site now.

For those who don't have a high quality blender, a trick to keep the cashews from gumming up the blender, and avoiding chunks, is to grind up just the cashews in a food processor first and then adding them to the blender with the rest of the ingredients. This is the first raw soup recipe I tried. The idea of cold soup (well, room temperature) kinda freaked me out but I didn't let myself think too hard about it and it was amazing! I gobbled it down. For a bit of extra texture and fun I added some pumpkin seeds.

I made this soup for supper tonight - what a relief! My last raw attempts about 2 years ago were mayhem - green potions in the fridge gathering mould while I tried to convince myself to hold my nose and glug them down; masses of splattered and caked kitchen equipment; amused friends, an unmistakable twinkle in the eye of my ever encouraging (meat eating, fish and chips fan) fiance... until I put away the raw recipe book and told myself it must all be a farce anyway. But tonight! A delicious meal, preparation time closer on zero than anything else I've ever prepared, genuinely impressed husband, teenage nephew going back for seconds - wonderful!! I didn't have cashews so I substituted half avo and half macadamias. And I did it with a cheap stick blender and it was still great.
Thank you so much! I'm a FAN!

Hi Paula! I don't tend to make a lot of savory recipes in my blender. I tend to use my food processor for many savory recipes. (totally recommend getting a food processor as your next purchase when the budget allows. they are awesome, and you can get one on sale for 1round $50.) But to answer your question, you are on the right track with the soups! If you liked the tomato then you are going to love the raw red pepper soup. 

You could definitely try making "raw macaroni and cheese" in your blender. Very yummy, and for noodles you can just use a carrot/potato peeler to make "noodles" out of zucchini. Also good in a blender, my "raw egg salad" recipe. (search for these in search bar)

Hope this helps! xox

Hi. I'd love to try this for dinner tonight. I don't have sun-dried tomatoes, (and I'm in the Costa Rican jungle where I'm not likely to find any). Can I make it without. I DO have plenty of avocados so might like to try with them, as nuts are hard to come by, here. Thanks.

Hi Lane! The sun-dried tomato serves two purposes - helps to soak up some liquid (thicken the soup a bit) and also to give a slightly more tomatoish flavor. I think if you dial the water down a tiny bit and maybe add half or even a quarter of avo instead of the sundried that'll be deelish!

Recently fully raw... Been experimenting for a while. Didn't dare try soups cause the thought freaked me out... Until this week & almost gave up on the whole soup idea until I tried this Recipe. My 10 yr old daughter wanted to make tomato soup herself which opened it up for me to attempt a raw version for me (she says she loves her cooked food but she's always trying my raw experiments) I closed my eyes & tried my soup & was very pleasantly surprised. Needless to say we both found our favorite homemade version of tomato soup tonight! Very interested in a good cream of mushroom if you have any suggestions. Thanks for all you do, I've been reading & trying your recipes for a long time but I've never commented... You saved my perception of raw soups tonight- kudos!

Hi Melissa, I felt the same way about raw soup!! I didn't have my first (good) raw soup 'til I'd been raw fod at least two years! I do have a cream of mush that is good too:  http://www.therawtarian.com/raw-cream-mushroom-soup-recipe

Hi Michel, so glad this recipe tickled your tongue the right way! I like it a lot too - it's a great intro to raw soup. Celery soup is good too!

RAWSOME ! I have done about 7 variations of this recipe in addition to your original version ( which is great) and it seems hard to screw up. I have use red peppers / substituted cashews with RAW sunflower seeds - have used avacoda - Cayanne - on one occasion I added 2 tbs of organic pasture heavy cream ( of course now its 90% raw) They all are so easy and so great.

Thanks a million and by the way you are Rawckin sexy !!

Peace
julie

This would probably be ok made one day in advance, however you will want to give it a good stir and also probably warm it up a bit (in bowl in dehydrator maybe?) because it might be a bit odd completely cold right out of fridge. Or if you could reblend in blender that's warm it up again - but it will also dirty your blender again so might defeat the purpose of making in advance :)

Ooh, just tried this and it's delicious! With a nut allergy though, I had to try substitute and the closest I could get was roasted soya beans so used them (soups still mostly raw!)

I have never done raw food, I'm currently on a detox and seriously considering raw food... I love alfredo so I'm gonna give your recipe a try. I have a question which pretains to your tomato soup... When i eat alfredo i usually pour marinara on it and almost make a vodka sauce. So can this soup be used as a marinara sauce... I would also like to make spagetti n meatballs.... any thoughts

For meatballs try modifying my meatloaf recipe:  http://www.therawtarian.com/raw-meatloaf-recipe

This soup recipe would NOT work well as marinara sauce. It's too soupy.

Hope that helps!

I love this soup, Laura-Jane! I was out of cashews so I had to replace them with brazil nuts but it still came out delicious!
Now if only I could find a great raw "grilled" cheese sandwhich!
I have a recipe for a great raw bread that I use to make almond butter and strawberry jelly but I can't seem to find a good cheese recipe. Any suggestions??

Hi Ashlyn,
I made a cream cheese sort of cheese for my raw lasagna with cashews and it was delish! 1 cup soaked cashews, 1 cup soaked pine nuts, 1 tblsp lemon juice, handful of chopped onion (i used red), 1 clove of garlic, some salt, process it all together, it will be extra thick and creamy, you will have to stop and push down from the sides, and viola! :)

Mmmm raw version of grilled cheese is gonna be tough, lol... I would love it though, I used to eat a lot of ooey gooey grilled cheese growing up, that was definitely one of my fav. comfort foods.

So in terms of a good hard cheese recipe I haven't found any that I've been too impressed with either. I spent days and days making rejuvelac and seed cheese and it was pretty good but it wasn't worth the effort IMO.

I'll add it to my to-do list though :)

Is it ok to use regular table salt?

Hmm. If you are using regular table salt reduce the quantity drastically and do it by taste.

Plus, make a note to pick up celtic sea salt the next time you're at a HFS. It's not very expensive and it's very good. It's non-iodized and the flavor really is very different.
