My first raw recipe! I mean, not counting Gazpacho, salad and such things that I normally eat anyway, but the first one that I purposely made raw. I based this on a recipe from Victoria Boutenko’s book 12 Steps to Raw Foods. I was pretty excited about my first raw soup, a creamy one based on nuts no less, that I ate it happily. However, it either didn’t keep well or I simply realized, once my excitement died down, that it tasted pretty odd. I haven’t finished my leftovers and I can’t say I’d make it again. I give it a lowly 2/5 happy monkeys.
1 cup walnuts (could use cashews as well)
2 cups water
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup chopped celery
1-2 cloves garlic
sea salt & cayenne pepper to taste
paprika or parsley for garnish
Blend one cup walnuts and one cup water until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the garnish. Blend well.
