On my last trip to California for Bhakti Fest 2011, we made a stop at Au Lac’s in LA for raw food. I love their Paella and soups. This time I tried a Tumeric soup that I don’t remember the correct name, but it had kelp noodles.
So today, in trying to come up with something that had noodles in it, I came up with a brand new AMAZING recipe for soup, which is now Yellow soup.
This what you’ll need:
1 handful of kelp noodles
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
3 Celery stalks
2 Medium Carrots
1 Medium Heirloom Tomato
Cilantro (about 2 handfuls not chopped)
1 Kale Leaf
1 Chard leaf
1 handful cashews (optional)
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 Tea Spoon Red Miso paste
Bariani Olive Oil
2 long Green Onion (scallions), chopped
Real Salt, Tumeric, and Paprika to taste
Start by rising the kelp noodles and then place them in a bowl. I like to cut them in half or even in quarters so that they are easy to take out the bowl while eating the soup. Sprinkle some salt and olice oil on them. Cut half of the red pepper in long strips or juliened and throw on top of the noodles. Chop 1 of the celery stalks in small pieces. I make mine tiny, like for a baby to chew because Denis and I don’t like celery otherwise. Place in the bowl with noodles and pepper.
Take the Kale and chard and cut in strips and add to bowl. Chopped half of the cilantro and the tomato and add to the bowl as well.
Cut the carrots and place them in your vitamix or blender. Cut the rest of the celery, red bell pepper, and cilantro and add to blender as well. Add the miso paste, salt, tumeric, paprika, and coconut oil and some water to begin blending. When it becomes smooth, begin adding the cashews. Add as much water as you want. I like it on the smooth creamy side so I didn’t add more than 1 cup. Squeeze the lime before you stop blending. Leave as long as you want to warm up or not. When you feel is ready, pour over the vegetables and noodles in bowl. Mix well and let it sit for a few minutes.
Serve and sprinkle the green onion/scallions on top of each bowl of soup. Makes about 6 servings (of course Denis and I finished the entire thing!).
I also put some sprouts on the table and plantains to accompany the soup.
Hope you enjoy my Yellow Soup 🙂
