Raw Minestrone Soup

(Preparing the Minestrone Soup at last week's Raw Food Made Simple cooking class.)


Soup Base:
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 stalks celery, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • dash of salsa seasoning
  • 3 cups tomatoes, diced

Soup toppings:
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1/3 cup basil leaves, chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Italian parsley to taste
  • green olives to taste
Soak sun-dried tomatoes for 10 minutes in 2 cups of water, or until they soften.
Blend 2 cups of soak water from sun-dried tomatoes with the celery, garlic, cayenne, sea salt, and salsa seasoning until smooth

Add fresh tomatoes and soaked sun-dried tomatoes to the blender. Blend on low, making sure to leave a chunky texture, like that of a chunky marinara. This is not supposed to be a smooth soup base. Add soup toppings and pulse until desired consistency.
