vitamix thai curry soup

Thai Curry Soup

Raw soup is one of my favorite things to make and they are great for all year long. Chilled soups in the summer are very refreshing and letting the soup blend just a little longer will heat it up just enough to warm you up in winter. The variety is endless and it’s a quick dinner fix. This one I adapted from Matt Amsden’s RAWvolution recipe Siamese Dream, Thai Curry Soup.

3 cups coconut water (I used O.N.E. One Natural Experience)

3 cloves garlic

2 pieces ginger about 1 – 2 inches each

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup Nama Shoyu

1 tablespoon curry powder

Place ingredients in your Vitamix blender, turn to high and blend for about 2-3 minutes if you want it to be a little warm. Otherwise, just blend until smooth. The soup is going to be a little frothy, this can be removed. I then garnished my soup with

half a small avocado, cubed

5 cherry tomatoes, sliced

1/4 yellow bell pepper, diced

torn basil leaves

1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced and then marinated in some namu shoyu for the time it took to make the soup

So good! Spicy, gingery, and full of flavor. Perfect for an end of winter dish!

  1. I first had this at the restaurant RAWvolution and went wild for it! The flavors are SO strong – and delicious – that my face started contorting, tears came to my eyes, and a big smile appeared. It was really pretty funny! They could’ve charged almost anything and I would’ve still gone there frequently for it. When the RAWvolution book came out, I was able to make it exactly the same at home in my Vitamix. I ODd on it several years ago and just made it again today. (I also got tired of opening young Thai coconuts and sometimes getting bad ones – like you, this time I used store-bought coconut water so readily available since then.) Oh myyyy, just like before, this is ecstasy to me!

    It’s also outstanding used as a broth for other soups and as liquid in other recipes (grains, thickened for gravy, etc.).

    A note of caution/awareness: I don’t know about anyone else but I noticed that, with both the restaurant soup and my homemade, it has a “cleansing” effect on my body about 3-4 hours later. I keep that in mind and wouldn’t have it before a concert, for example. YMMV :-)
