Garden Harvest & Raw Recipe for Creamy Tomato Basil Soup- May 10, 2010


Aloha! Well we had a beautiful harvest  from our garden. Fennel, Carrots, Beets and tons o’ greens! We also had a huge ration of tomatoes. So I decided to make a quick and easy, DELICIOUS Creamy Tomato Soup. It was so yummy and simple, that I figured I had to share it with you.

I used some dulce seaweed for a mineral rich saltiness and avo for the creamy heartiness. A little touch of fresh basil, and topped with licorice like fennel seeds.  Mmmmm.

I used:

  • Large bunch of tomatoes
  • 1/4 Large Avocado
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice (oops and a few seeds)
  • 6 or so leaves of basil
  • Small handful of Dulse Seaweed (Raw Wildcrafted- I used Earth Circle Foods) You can order it and more yummy nutritious food staples at http://www.therawfoodworld.com/  We love this store and the owners are amazing.
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • Pinch of Seasalt (be careful here depending on how much seaweed you used)
  • A few dashes of Volcano Spice or cayenne seasoning

Put all that in the blender and blend until it gets to the consistency you like. Top it off with a drizzle of EVOO, fennel seeds, a touch of dulse flakes and a few sprigs of fresh basil.

It literally took me longer to write this recipe than to make it. Let me know if you try it and what you think.

Hopefully we will post more this week for you, as we have a TON of great stuff to share with you. We have had some amazing hikes, beaches, trip to Hana, Haleakala Crater, Taro Festival and more! I will put together some slideshows and get them up asap! I know some of you are feenin for your Maui blast. Sorry to keep ya hangin’! Just catching up on house chores, gardening etc.

Chris’s Mom and her hubby Don came to stay with us from Arizona, so we got to play around a bit!! Whooo hoo!!! That was a fun trip and glad you guys made it out for a little rest and rejuvenation~ON MAUI~

Love –
Chris & Sara

    I’m sitting here drooling over your recipe while looking at my 6 inch tomato plants in the kitchen window awaiting our frost free day here in Ohio before they can be planted outside.

    Thanks for the recipe, and thanks for inviting us into your part of the world.
