I love everything purple. My phone is purple, my bathroom is purple, even my hair has streaks of purple. I find myself gravitating toward everything purple even in my food choices. Purple cabbage, purple radishes, purple cauliflower and even purple carrots I love these varieties. You never know what you’re going to get when you create a dish. These colors bring out the artist in me. I’m the colorful side of my marriage relationship, my husband is all black and white. Yet, he truly liked this Raw Cream of Purple Carrot Soup.
My husband is a landscape photographer, he does everything in fine art quality black and white in Ansel Adams style. You can view some of his photos here and you’ll see what I mean. I on the other hand I bring color to his life, at least that’s what he always tells everyone! He also tells our friends he never know what I’m making for dinners or what’s in his food because I don’t use recipes. It’s true I don’t, I wrote a whole blog post about how I dream in flavors. I don’t anyone who does this.
Most people will have a dream and get up to write….Nope! I get up to cook what I’ve dreamed about. This soup was in my dream last night. I was serving it to guests and they were really liking it. So here it is.
Raw Cream of Purple Carrot Soup
- 2 Purple carrots, chopped
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 1/8 cup chopped shallots
- 1/2 of a large avocado, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, sliced
- 1/4 cup avocado oil
- 1/4 t Himalayan salt
- 1/8 t ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon coconut amino acids
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup full fat coconut cream
- 1 Tablespoon avocado oil for the topping
- Toppings: pumpkin or sunflower seeds, cauliflower croutons, or chopped mint leaves
Blend the first eight ingredients in a nutribullet or blender. Top with remaining tablespoon of the avocado oil and a topping of your choice. Makes 1 large serving or 2 smaller servings.
Eating a raw, alkaline, keto, plant-based, vegan plan does take some creative out-of-the-box thinking but it’s so worth it in the end. Trust me. Your body will thank you. And maybe you’ll start dreaming in the flavors of this soup.
