TOMATO AVOCADO MUSHROOM CORN SOUP


An excellent way of eating warm, raw meals in the colder months is in soups. You can use spices, garlic, onions, and other vegetables and hot water to create creamy, flavorful, healthy bowls of goodness that will have everybody asking for more! This particular recipes uses garlic to add heat, and avocado for creaminess. The other ingredients are fresh and bursting with nutrition and great taste. I like adding chopped veggies to the soup so you have another texture. Grab a spoon!

This recipe was featured on Chalkboard Magazine about a month ago, and I figured it's time to share the photos and recipe on my own blog too. This soup is DELICIOUS, insanely healthy and so easy to make. There are literally zero downsides involved. Let's slurp raw goodness and dance to this song.


Tomato Avocado Mushroom Corn Soup

Soup:
3 white mushrooms
2 heirloom tomatoes
½ avocado
1 cup sweet corn
2-3 cups hot water
1 tablespoon miso paste
1 garlic clove


Toppings:
2 sliced mushrooms, marinated (recipe below)
¼ cup sweet corn
½ avocado, cubed
Basil leaves
Salt & pepper


To make the marinated mushrooms: slice them then toss in a tiny bit of extra virgin olive oil and tamari or soy sauce. Put in a warm spot for 30 minutes or in your oven at a very low temperature for 10-15 minutes. They’re ready when they have darkened and softened.

To make the soup: blend all the ingredients until smooth and soupy. Adjust according to taste, adding water as needed. Pour into a bowl then drop on your toppings and enjoy!

  3. Hey Emily! I was wondering about your thoughts on coconut sugar? Maybe you could do a post on it and perhaps other sweeteners you find super healthy? My go to choice is always coconut sugar! =)

    1. Thank you :D No, I often have cooked foods like brown rice and steamed or baked veggies for my dinner in the colder months. It works for me!

  13. This looks delicious, can't wait to try. Did you use fresh or canned corn? Don't think i can get fresh this time of year...but canned corn is pre-cooked isn't it?

  14. I made this today and I have to say that the results were all right but not super good: the soup was neither avocado-y, nor mushroomy nor tomatoey nor corny. So it was a bit bland... I used brown headed champignon mushrooms and my only topping were the marinated mushrooms and corn but still. I would suggest adding something else or to cut out a couple of ingredients to let one shine.
    Em's most recent recipe was instead great, for the butternut squash soup.
