Raw (No) Cream of Mushroom Soup

Raw (No) Cream of Mushroom Soup

Raw (No) Cream of Mushroom Soup
Serves 2
When you're an omnivore or even a vegetarian, giving up dairy can be super tough. One secret: replace the same "mouth feel" you get with dairy with other things. This creamless soup gets the same mouth feel from cashews and avocados, so your brain thinks it's eating real cream of mushroom. A few rounds of this, and you won't need the real thing, ever!

  9. 1/2 tsp sea salt
  10. 1/4 cup leek, opt
  11. Optional garnish: hot chili oil
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients into container in order listed. Start on 1 and slowly ramp up to 10, then switch to high. Blend for 3-4 minutes or until soup is warm. Use a meat thermometer to check temperature (ideal goal is 116-120 degrees. Pour into serving bowls and add chopped mushroom stems, chopped parsley and a dash of pepper.
Notes
  1. The directions indicate blending for 3-4 minutes, which will keep the soup "raw." If you would prefer the soup hot, blend for 5-8 minutes.

Mango Gazpacho
Serves 4
I flat out lifted this from a Whole Foods recipe. But, they nailed it. I was doing a show today, and the girl doing the demo of this recipe offered me some. I was under the impression that gazpacho was just boring cold tomato soup. This was anything but. AWESOME. Bursting with flavor, and could have been a whole meal. And, they made it in a Vitamix!
