Raw and Warming Carrot Coconut Curry Soup

November 14, 2011

As the weather gets a bit colder I always crave more heartier, more warming dishes for comfort. A lot of times the very things I crave in the winter are the very hearty things that aren’t necessarily healthy or can even lead to weight gain.

For that reason alone I’m always on the lookout for recipes that are filling and healthy and promise great nutrition. And when I recently took a raw food demo class at a local Whole Foods, I knew I had to start incorporating more and more raw food dishes into my life again. (Oh how easy it is to veer off track.)

Most of the time, eating raw foods, or healthier foods, is far easier in the summer or spring because of the abundance of fresh fruits and veggies and because it’s hot. Cooling, fresh food is the majority of what we crave. One battle of a raw food based diet is keeping that plant base in the colder months.

Enter Raw Carrot Coconut Curry Soup

Wintertime marks hot foods, warm foods, comfort foods. Let this soup recipe be your warm, comforting food. Let the flavors of this soup pop in your mouth. Because this soup is amazing. With so much flavor, you can taste on each part of your tongue. Mmmmm, mmmmm…..

 

What do you crave in the winter?

What foods give you comfort?

I believe my ninja is just as good as a vitamix, but I’ve never used a vitamix. I use it to make smoothies and soups all the time.

Hmmm… never heard of a ninja but any good blender works! And good blenders are amazing… and so great!

Sounds like a yummy one. I don’t personally think winter is necessarily the best time to eat ‘more and more’ raw food–some cooked food can be good when it’s super-cold. But definitely fermented foods. That soup would be awesome with a garnish of kim chee…

Great recipe! Young coconut is the best. I too struggle in the winter to get adequate amounts of raw veggies. It’s so cold I just want plate after plate of spaghetti!
