  • 2 cups room temperature water
  • 3 whole tomatoes

  • 1/2 carrot
  • 1 handful cabbage
  • 1/4 red capsicum
  • 1-2 handful cashews
  • 1 handful basil (with stalk)

  • 1 small slice ginger (with peel)
  • 1/4 jalapeno or chilli (with stem and seeds)
  • red capsicum and basil leaves (to garnish)


  1. Put all the ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Select speed 1, turn the machine on and quickly increase to the highest speed.
  3. Use tamper to effectively press the ingredients into the blades if required whilst processing.
  4. Blend for 5-6 minutes or until desired temperature is reached.
  5. Stop the machine and serve.


  • For a chunky style soup add 1/2 tomato and a handful of basil leaves, blend on medium speed for 5-10 seconds.
  • Start with hot water to speed up the process, blend for only 1-2 minutes.
  • Raw Foodist like to only heat their soup to about 45 degrees so no enzymes are lost.
  • Make sure to always check that the nuts that you are buying are gluten free.

    I remember trying this at a trade show when they were doing a VITAMIX demonstration and it has been a regular dinner for me ever since!
