Raw Soups with a Foreign Flair
Brimming with fresh flavor and nutrients, soups are a favorite way to please your palate. In the Vitamix blender, you can create chunky texture by adding a few chopped vegetables at the end, or make an entirely smooth purée.
Of course, raw does not equal cold. Eat your soup chilled, at room temperature, or slightly warmed, all determined by the amount of time you blend.
Soups prepared according to direction in the Vitamix blender will remain raw, retaining valuable enzymes. Our raw soups are blended for two minutes or less, not long enough to rise above the temperature of 104° Fahrenheit.
Enjoy these soup recipes, one from the exotic East, and one from the Mediterranean West, but both delicious. These and other raw soups can be found in the Live Fresh recipe book.
