"Creamy" Corn Soup
2 ears sweet corn
1 clove garlic
1/2 red bell pepper
1/4 cup walnuts
1/2 to 1 tablespoon Braggs Liquid Aminos (to taste)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup water
I have been messing with raw foods and made up this soup tonight. It's really tasty and filling! It consists of a "base" of liquidy ingredients and then some solid stuff to mix in so the soup is chunky. If you want, you can toss it all in the blender (may need to add a little more water).
1) First, prepare all your ingredients. For the corn, cut the corn kernels off the cob. You can run the knife along the edge of the cob. Put half in a blender cup and keep the other half. Cut the avocado in half and peel. Put half of the flesh in the blender with the corn. Dice and reserve the flesh from the other half. Cut the bell pepper half in half. Add 1/4 to the blender and dice the other quarter and reserve.
2) Place the rest of the ingredients into the blender. Pulse blender until large chunks are broken up and then run briefly until it is smooth. Make sure you don't run it too long (esp. if you have a Vita-Mix!) because you don't want the soup to get hot. Adjust water if you want it a little thinner. You can also taste and add more Braggs if you want.
3) To serve, divide soup base between bowls. Divide up the avocado, pepper, and corn that you chopped and set aside earlier between the bowls. Enjoy!
