Warming foods that still hold all of their vibrance, life, and nutrients is what this soup is all about :D! This is a simple soup that does not require anything super fancy besides a blender.

I let this blend for a little longer than necessary to create a “cooked” warmth to my soup.

Another great way of getting this soup to feel warming is by adding a root vegetable like carrots since they take a bit of work for the blender to break down. It’s nice to have fresh in season root vegetables in foods to get a grounded feeling that some of us on a living vegan diet lack at times. Getting grounded may have a bit of a warming feeling also 🙂

By using warming spices the soup becomes soothing and comforting. I freshly microplaned ginger and turmeric. Plus added mesquite powder to give it a little smoked/roasted taste. Add the very end when I served the soup I freshly ground some nutmeg & cinnamon to add to the top. Delicious!

If you aren’t hot pepper shy, feel free to add just a little bit into a blended soup for some extra warmth. A slither of Habanero pepper in this would be excellent.

Another idea is to wash your blender pitcher in very hot water, or let it sit in a little soaking tub of hot water. This will add to that warming feeling when the food is blended up 🙂

I have several living vegan soup recipes on my site, please take the time to scope them out. I recently did a post really focusing on some recipe ideas, and a general grocery list for things to buy to create your own living vegan soup. My friends over at DC Veggie Chefs post some yummy, easy and quick vegan & living vegan soups also 🙂

I recommend placing the oranges in the blender first because they have all the water/liquid the blade needs and quickly pulsing this mixture. Then set it on a smoothie setting or something of the sorts that goes at a high-speed for a fair amount of time. This will thicken up the soup, warm it and really break down all of the fiber.

I do use mesquite powder in this blended soup to add another dimension of flavor. I have also used this powder in a dressing to create a sweet & sour barbecue sauce.

Carrot Orange Persimmon Ginger Soup

Makes One Cup

One orange, peeled with all of the pith removed, diced (it adds a tartness)

1 small gooey persimmon, peeled and rough chopped

2 cups of peeled & shredded carrot

Mesquite, Ginger & Turmeric according to your preference

I did not personally do this but may be 1/2 a teaspoon of miso would add a nice salty, thick and cooked level to the soup ❤ The bacteria may be excellent for those fighting any illnesses this holiday season 😉

Once blended and placed into a serving bowl sprinkle on some freshly ground cinnamon and nutmeg. Bon Appetite my sweets!

Thank you all for taking the time to stop by my website. I hope you have some ideas on what to make in the kitchen today. Much love ❤ and raw power 😉
