Chilled Red Pepper Soup (GF)

Even though it’s January, it still feels like summer in Alabama. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want rich, filling soup. That’s why I created this chilled soup – like everything here, it’s gluten-free because of my medical needs, but that doesn’t keep it from being the ultimate in deliciousness!

Although it is chilled, it is so filling and rich that I’m always full after a cup. I enjoy it all year round, but especially when it starts to warm up outside. The best part? This soup has only five ingredients (including garnish). Five. Since it is chilled, you can make this in five minutes too. Five for five. I can’t think of a single reason not to make this!

Chilled Red Pepper Soup (GF)

Serves 1

1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/3 c cashews, soaked overnight
1/2 t salt
1/4 t cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
1/4 c water
Fresh basil (garnish)

Blend all of the ingredients (except the basil) until smooth. Garnish with sliced basil and enjoy immediately.

I make this without a fancy blender (Nutribullet FTW), and it is still delicious. You could, I suppose heat this up if you aren’t a chilled soup fan, but try it first – this is the soup that converted me to chilled soup love.

    • Thank you! I can’t say the picture is recent – but when I took it, it took a lot of time and a plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner and then I drew a knife through the lines I piped in!


  3. Hello Laura! Found you through Fiesta Friday! This soup looks amazing and I’m super excited that its only 5 ingredients.. wow! Show us how you made those patterns sometime, pretty please! πŸ™‚


    • You totally can! It’s not a gazpacho per se, it’s thicker than that. I can’t think of what to compare it too… Just thick, creamy and delicious!


  4. Wowza! I am in love with this soup!!! Thanks so much for sharing it at Raw Foods Thursdays. I’m featuring you…again…tomorrow! I just can’t get enough of your recipes!


    • Thank you so much – and I’m so sorry that I couldn’t figure out the Linksys last week! It kept giving me errors, and then I went back to the page and there was seven there! Sorry!
