Hazelnut Carrot Soup

The inspiration for many of my recipes is simple. What’s in the refrigerator? It’s lunchtime, I haven’t planned and I am hungry. Not all raw food has to be planned in advance. A lot of raw food recipes can be made in minutes and provide us with a super nutritious, quick to make meal.

When I opened the refrigerator door, a large bag of organic carrots was staring at me. Next to the carrots were the hazelnuts. That started me thinking. Minutes later, I had a bowl of hazelnut carrot soup, seasoned beautifully with a little ginger and cinnamon. The addition of an apple plus salt and pepper to taste created a savory depth. This is a must try raw food recipe! This can be warmed in the dehydrator, or high-speed blender. If you warm it on the stove, make sure you have a thermometer….the temp rises VERY fast.

    Sounds very good and would lend itself to a light curry seasoning I think.

    Actually, quick question: you mentioned that if you use dry nuts, you soak and then dehydrate them… however, when I first purchase them, they are already dry.
    Do you do this, because of the live enzymes?

    What an incredible tasting soup!!! I also added walnuts to the hazelnuts and man… so tasty!

    Another recipe tried and appreciated. I thought it would taste a bit strange and that I might have to heat it, but it was so yummy as it is (I just finished eating it) that I am going to have another bowl right now. Your recipes are fantastic, I’m so glad that I found your website.

      It is a raw soup :-). You can warm it if you wish but to keep the nutrients, keep it under 115. Cheers!

    What an AWESOME flavour! I chose to juice the apples & carrots but both the hazelnuts (soaked) and the carrots separated after I blended it. Definitely should be processed instead.
    YUMMY! Thanks, Susan

    Looking for some late fall/winter recipe inspirations. I’m wondering do you soak/dehydrate the hazelnuts (and all of your nuts in general) even before adding them to a “wet” recipe? In order to plan ahead and because I’ve had some nuts go bad in the fridge, have you had any luck freezing soaked/dehydrated nuts/seeds? Thanks!

      Lesli, If the recipe calls for nuts and then it says “soaked for 6 hours” you need soaked, wet nuts. If I am using wet nuts in a recipe, I don’t soak them twice as the one soaking will get rid of the enzyme inhibitors. If it calls for dry nuts, I have usually soaked and dehydrated the nuts at some time before. :-). You don’t want to leave soaking nuts in the fridge for more than a day or two. If your nuts are going bad, they probably didn’t dehydrate them enough.
