Raw Food Recipe: Tomato Red Pepper Soup

serves 2 ~ $2.70 per serving
ingredients
  • 3 ripe tomatoes, quartered ($3.00)
  • 1 red pepper, chopped ($.60)
  • 2 carrots, chopped ($.10)
  • 4 tablespoons tahini ($.80)
  • 4 dates ($.40)
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle seasoning 
  • juice of one lime ($.50)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons celery, minced 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
This soup makes a beautiful color that is cheerful any time of year. Meatier tomatoes, such as Romas, make a thicker soup and are ideal if you can find them. If not, just look for the freshest tomato available. I used frozen tomatoes from the summer garden, which worked out really well.
In a blender, puree the tomatoes, red pepper, carrots, tahini, dates, chipotle, and lime juice until very smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with minced celery and add a little swirl of olive oil, if desired.
Optional: If you like a thicker and even bolder soup, put the quartered tomatoes and chopped red peppers in the dehydrator for an hour or so before making the soup!

BRAVO! I've made this soup twice in the past week. So good!
I added a swirl of Greek yogurt to give it more of a rich flavor.
The tahini and the dates are the secret ingredients in my opinion!

Hi, one more question–what kind of pepper did you use? Is this a red bell pepper or a spicy pepper?

Anonymous, I was wondering about the number of servings as well. Most of the other soups are two so…maybe 2? Just a guess, though.

Hi – How many servings is this soup. I am sure you must say, but I have ready twice, but missing it somewhere. Thanks, elysa

I just made this. My husband loves it! I used my Wolfgang Puck blender and ran it on high until 110 degrees to make it warm. Turned out smooth, thick and tasty.

I made this today from the week 9 meal plan. I wasn't sure how it would be because i've only had tahini one other time and it wasn't a pleasant experience. But this soup was SO good, even for a new raw foodie. Thanks Lisa!

Made the soup for a vegan cooking party. It turned out delicious but mine didn't look as smooth as yours. Do you remember how long you ran the blender?
