TheBlenderGirl.com > Raw Vegan Corn Chowder
This raw corn chowder is extremely simply, fresh and delicious. That is the charm for me. It is nothing special. Just fresh ingredients blended together! The best thing about this soup is that you can literally make it in 5 minutes! This little soup recipe is a lifesaver when you come home and need a quick healthy meal without a lot of fuss. Best of all, it is extremely versatile. It can be served hot or cold, in Summer or Winter, and can be dressed up with all kinds of fresh vegetables. I have served it chilled with no toppings in shot glasses 'gazpacho style", and I have served it warm topped with fresh chopped vegetables.
To serve it warm, just run the blender for a few minutes until the friction heat of the blades slightly warms the soup. You don't want to serve this piping hot or you will lose all of the valuable live enzymes. Boiling and warming too much also changes the delicate flavor. If you don't have a high-speed blender, you can add a little bit of warm water to the blend. I like to serve this soup as a small starter in the Summer topped with fresh corn and cilantro.
Just a note about the flavors: because these are fresh raw ingredients, the flavors will continue to infuse. The flavors will taste quite mild when you first blend them together. But if you chill in the fridge they will continue to grow. So allow to stand before adding in more zing!
Enjoy! This soup is a refreshing little winner. Simple and scrumptious!
