View Full Version : Mmmm, SQWASH SOUP!
09-23-2004, 02:01 PM
mmmm, just made some squash soup that turned out really good. It was my first time making anything with raw squash before so I was a little nervous but it actually tastes really good raw and so do the seeds (anyone know if the seeds are healthy to eat?) I used some butternut squash, cucumber, spinach, hot chili pepper, garlic, fresh basil, 1 carrot, 1 avocado and for the liquid a little rejuvelac and some hot water and then after it was all blended up I chopped some yellow bell pepper up and mixed it in with the soup. Then I served it in a hot bowl, mixed some spicy amarillo pepper powder in with it and ate it with some dehydrated sweet fruit bread. Sooooo good! So if you're like me and were afraid to use raw squash, you really should try it out because it has such a wonderful flavor!

Wow, can I be the first in line to buy your cookbook when you publish it? :D

Awe curtis you make me blush! :D I'm not really that into cookbooks though lol. I am way more into just experimenting but I think it's nice to have a recipe or an idea to start from. If I do write a book I will explain that the most important part of preparing food is always to be continually tasting what you are making until you get it just right! And I have found especially with raw food that it is very forgiving and swapping ingredients is always very easy. I'm currently working on a recipe for potatoe garlic french fries. I wish I had some guinui pigs to taste what I make though because sometimes I think my taste buds have changed so much and what tastes incredible to me might not taste so good to someone else ya know. I can't imagine someone not liking this soup though it was so delicious and easy to make (I think it took me all of about five minutes to make) and I think it's probably really healthy too.

I love the sound of this recipe, especially the spices - cause I like food hot.

Lol okay this is kind of strange but I didn't get to sleep last night until 7AM I was so wired after eating the soup. I had some cacao ice cream too which may have had something to do with it, but nonetheless I had so much energy even after doing my bikram yoga. I ended up sleeping for about two hours until around 9, then ate some more of the soup and went running in the forest and then for a quick swim in the ice cold river. I don't think I have felt this good in quite a long time!

Hey, that sounds awesome!!! Don't ya just LOVE that amarillo pepper??!!! I'm crazy about it! I use it in my eggplant marinade and make my eggplant really spicy.

Yeah the amarillo pepper is really great! Mmm, eggplant sounds delicious. I haven't really made any raw eggplant yet but after reading your post I think I'll have a go at it. I just made some really good butternut squash in the dehydrator with caramel sauce which turned out REALLY amazing. For the sauce I used yacon syrup, almond butter and a little coconut butter. It tasted kind of like caramel to me only way better. After being in the dehydrator for several hours the sauce absorbed into the squash and it became a little soft and warm which was really nice. I also made broccoli and spinach in the dehydrator with some olive oil and amarillo pepper and it was so yummy!

That caramel sounds really good. How did you come up with that?
What do you think it would be good to serve it? I like the idea of putting it on some squash, but what is the texture of the squash? Is it still a bit crunchy?
Maybe blending it with the squash for a pudding? Maybe as caramel dip?
How thick was it and, since you added the coconut butter, did it harden when refrigerated?
