Raw Vegan Pea Soup

It has been a while since my husband and I have wanted to switch to a raw food diet. We have tried it many times but have never been able to continue for more than a few days (shows how strong our will is right?) Anyway, this time around, we decided that instead of eating all meals raw, we’ll try doing one or two meals a day. So starting with dinner yesterday, our raw food plan has officially started. There is an amazing blog called ‘Foods for Long Life’, which will be my main source for innovative raw food recipes. 
Ingredients (serves 2)
Fresh/frozen peas – 3 cups
Celery – 1 cup (I did not use celery)
Onion – 2 tbsps
Garlic – 2 cloves
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) – 1 tbsp
Lemon juice – 2 tbsps
Ground cumin – 1 tsp
Water – 1 ½ cups
Salt to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste (I used regular chilli powder)
Corn –( Fresh) 1 medium; (frozen) - ½ cup
Parsley or cilantro for garnish (optional)
In the big jar of your mixie/blender, add water, peas, celery, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, chilli and blend until smooth. Add EVOO and give it one more pulse. Remove into serving bowls and garnish with corn, herbs and lemon juice. Bon App├ętit.
