Your food is making me hungry and I absolutely love your site design! Great blog, thank you! Also,just wanted to let you know that this raw vegan company I really really like EarthCafetogo.com is giving away 2 raw organic vegan cheesecakes in exchange for “green” wedding ideas. This is too good to be true! They are seriously my favorite desserts, cooked or raw. You just post a comment to enter and support great raw food in the world. Check ‘em out http://www.VeganBride.com/blog (Hopefully I get a free cheesecake out of this! Hee hee)!! Miki

Thanks for the recipe idea. I was in the mood for ginger and yet wanted soup for supper (I eat mostly raw vegan) so I searched and saw your recipe -- happened to have pears from our CSA box and carrots of course ... but not a lot of time, so I blended one small cucumber,a pear, a small apple and a bit of water first and then added in a big chunk of ginger, 3 med. carrots, some sea salt & coconut oil and blended it until smooth (soup button on Blendtec!) ... put some chopped mint over it as well ... very creamy and yummy! So, if you don't have juice on hand and don't have time to juice, you can try it that way too. Oh, I also had it gently warmed instead of cool because it's a rainy cool day and it was great. :-)

Forgot the part where I added a couple of big handfuls of greens (leaf lettuce) because I needed to get some blended greens in ... didn't affect taste, still yummy!
