Recipe 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. :)

It takes approx. 1 medium red bell pepper to make 1 cup roughly chopped red bell peppers.

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.

Made this tonight, omg it was amazing! Just wish I started with less water bc I had less than a cup of peppers so it was a little thin. This is going into my rotation!

This is absolutely delish!!! For an intense flavor, put roughly chopped pepper in the dehydrator for several hours before blending. It's like roasted red bell pepper soup!

Hey, I love your website! Always looking for simple ways to make my food, I spend way too much time thinking about what I'm going to eat!

By the way, I noticed that a lot of raw food recipies include cashews but I've found that they are very difficult to find raw. Where do you get you cashews from? Do you soak them?

Thanks!

Hi Jessica, I look for untoasted unsalted, which are easy to find. There is some controversy about whether they have been heated - as some cashews labeled "raw" may not actually even be raw. But unsalted untoasted is a good place to start

I was wondering if any of the raw soups can be heated once blended if the blender doesn't heat it up enough. I'm new to the "rawtarian" way and have cut out meats (still have mild cravings!! -_-) but now looking for new and exciting dishes to make, so thank you for this site! Its been extremely helpful!

Hi Eva, you can let it blend for a long time to take the cold edge off - also you can reheat in your dehydrator or some people might warm on low in a pot

Yum! Thanks for the recipe!!! My husband and my meat-eating mother in law loved it too :) I just need to convince my 2 year old... By the way, my husband would like the (soaked, raw) cashews more blended so it is smoother. Is this b/c of my low quality blender? Would a higher quality blender like Vitamix work?

Hi Tanya, yes, a better blender would definitely do the trick. But if it's not possible to upgrade blenders, you are correct -  soaking for an hour or two in warm water will help to soften the cashew and make them blender better. Also, perhaps you needed to let it blend more as well

A stick type, hand-held blender also works quite well for blending things a little finer than your average counter top blender, and they're quite affordable too. I used one to make this recipe and it came out smooth.

Hi there, I've been toying with the idea of going doing a 30 day raw challenge for myself (to be fair, my 30 day vegetarian challenge converted me full time veg a year ago), and was doing my research. I came across your page, and am considerably more excited about going raw now! Everything looks and sounds delicious and easy...and that there's a raw ranch dressing makes it that much easier (as does your app).

Thank you so much!
