80/10/10 Recipe: Low Fat Raw Vegan Green Pea Lemon Dill Blended Soup

by on October 7, 2011


Green peas and dill are some of my favourite green things to eat. So I decided to combine them into a tasty raw soup recipe.

This is sort of a chunky style raw soup with diced veggie chunks in a blended base. Feel free to customize it as you like, but I find that having something to chew on in raw soups is nice so it’s not just eating smoothie with a spoon.

Alternately, if you don’t love green peas raw, you can substitute more of something else like zucchini, cucumber or even diced peppers.

Raw Green Pea Lemon Dill Soup

Makes 2 servings

Ingredients:

Soup Base

2 cups zucchini, peeled and chopped
2 cups yellow or orange tomatoes, chopped
1 cup of celery, chopped
1/2 cup dill, chopped fine
4 green onions, chopped
5 or 6 small dates, pitted
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup of chia gel (or a tbsp or two of chia seed)
2 tsp celery powder or 1/2 tsp salt (optional)

 

Veggies:

1 celery stalk, diced
1/2 cup zucchini, diced
1/2 cup cucumber, diced
1 cup fresh or frozen peas
1 green onion, diced

*Using a veggie chopper is the fastest way to get the vegetables into little cubes to stir into the soup.

 

Directions:

1. Blend soup ingredients in a Vitamix or blender until well combined.

2. Divide soup and veggies into 2 bowls and garnish with extra dill or green onion.

Enjoy!

Veronica, this is another one from your book/dvd set that I love! Have made it twice now. The first time I went to make it, I thought I was reading a typo, in that I thought the cup of peas was supposed to be blended into the soup part. I guess I’d never eaten frozen peas thawed to room temperature before… well, I stuck to your original recipe – and they tasted great like that just mixed in. Another dish, deceptively easy to make, but perfect for when I’m craving something a little more ‘complex-tasting’ if you know what I mean. This would also impress non-raw guests (together with the mexican corn chowder recipe). Btw, I also love dill, and need no excuse to include it by the cupful…;-)

I LOVE dill in raw soups. Fred and I literally pack as much as we can in, it’s so good. I’m glad you tried it with the peas, they certainly are delicious thawed as well!
