As much as I would love to take the credit for this recipe, I can’t. My husband worked on this baby until he finally felt it was perfect to share.
Raw Vegan Creamy Tomato Soup
So here it is! Our raw creamy tomato soup, inspired by our use to be favorite roasted red pepper creamy tomato box soup. The one we use to buy before we were introduced to the raw vegan lifestyle. May I say that I don’t really remember what the soup tasted like but this version is so filling, it kicks that craving to the curb, every time. Now all we need is the raw vegan grilled cheese sandwich? Is anyone up for the challenge?
This recipe is so easy, I use it when I’m super busy and don’t want to make a big mess in the kitchen. The family loves it and clean up is a breeze, less work for me. It’s a win win! Give it a try and share it with family & friends.
