As promised in my previous post about raw food in South Africa, I asked my friend Beryn Daniel, author of Rawlicious: Delicious Raw Recipes for Radiant Health, if she would be willing to share the recipe for the delicious soup I enjoyed at her home in Cape Town.
So here it is! This soup is so tasty, creamy, rich and nourishing. I am sure you will love it.
We also added cayenne pepper on top to add a little extra kick so if you like it spicy feel free to try this. Just be careful because cayenne is very hot and easy to overdo.
Creamy Thai Soup
1 litre warm water
1 and 1/2 Cups dessicated coconut (soaked in warm water for 5 minutes)
2 stalks lemon grass
10 dried kaffir lime leaves
1/4 C cashews
1 – 2 avocados
1/4 C coriander (cilantro)
1T brown rice miso
1T olive oil
2 tsp salt
Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until warmed through.
Served in warmed bowls with Essene bread and olive oil.
