Tomato Basil Soup … a Raw Food Recipe

serves 2 ~ $1.83 per serving

  • 3 tomatoes ($3.00)
  • 2 carrots, chopped ($.20)
  • 2 celery stalks ($.20)
  • 1 medium onion ($.05)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil ($.40)
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
  • red pepper flakes

This is so simple and so satisfying and takes just a very few minutes to make.

Add all ingredients to blender and puree until smooth. Top with a few red pepper flakes and a drizzle of oil. Lately, I’ve been trying blended soups with the oil lessened or omitted and they’re just as delicious.

  1. I never add oil to your soups either! But I must admit that sometimes I heat them on the stove top. I know, I know, I shouldn't. Sometimes I cannot get myself to eat the soups raw, but they're always so delicious cooked!

    I make all of your soups without the added oil and I have never been disappointed. I eat a very low fat, raw, vegan diet and wouldn't even think of adding oil to the soups. I only use 1 T of oil in my salad dressings and that is enough for multiple salads. I just use more fresh fruit juice or herbs in it and don't even miss the oil or vinegars.
    I am glad you have been trying them with less oil. You will be shocked at how much better you can feel just by reducing the amount of fats.
    Peace and Raw Health,
