raw sweet potato? yup! you would never know! I found a recipe online for sweet potato soup, and change some of the ingredients to my liking. This is super filling!

Ingredients:

-1 sweet potato

- 1/2 large tomato

- hand full of cashews

- 1/4 of a red onion

-garlic clove

- dash of cumin

-dash cayenne

-dash cinnamon

-salt to taste

- dash curry powder

-cilantro

Put sweet potato, tomato, nuts, onion, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, cumin, salt, curry, and cilantro in Vitamix. Make sure the sweet potato is chopped up a bit, even a vitamix cant break through that! Slowly add water. I ended up using slightly over a cup, it depends how thick you want it. When the soup is hot, add some more nuts. Red bell pepper can be added as well at the end for a quick second to add some chunks to the soup. I bet peas thrown in at the end would be good too! Garnish with cilantro and enjoy!

 

VITAMIX! March 23, 2010

So my vitamix has arrived today!  I am so excited, my RAW kitchen is complete! What is a Vitamix you ask? Only the best blender in the world! This blender makes it possible for raw foodies to eat hot things like soups and sauces and instantly make ice creams! its truly incredible.

The way the blade tears appart the fibers of the fruits and vegetables allows you to get the most out of your food. you can add fruits and vegetables whole.. yes, seeds, skins, cores, everything. This way you wont miss out on any nutrients!

How does it heat without cooking? The crazy super fast moving blades create friction, causing it to heat! This is perfect for the warm food lovers who are scared to go raw in fear of loosing their soups and sauces. You do have to be careful, because if you let it run long enough it will boil, and the food will be cooked.

Your probably wondering how something that heats something can make it frozen too. Well, using different speeds at certain times causes the blade to react differently with the food. you will also be using frozen fruits to make ice cream, and it will be the freshest ice cream you ever taste!

Im so excited! Tonight I am going to make soup and ice cream, just to try both functions!
