Creamy Raw Tomato Soup

By July 21, 2012May 6th, 2015Raw, Recipes, Seasonal, Soups and Stews

I love soups and in the summer a cold soup is so much more appealing than a hot soup.  I like to have a soup made up in the refrigerator so if I need a quick snack, there it is.  When I have delicious, satisfying healthy food readily available I don’t need reach for the cheese or chips.

This soup is divine when the tomatoes are in season. Right now there are lots of cherry and grape tomatoes in the farmers market which are perfect for this recipe.
