Raw Romesco Soup

Romesco sauce is a Spanish sauce made from red peppers and almonds. Every time I have Romesco sauce, I think to myself, “this is so good, I could eat a whole bowl of this!” So I decided to do just that, by turning Romesco sauce into a soup! This soup literally comes together in seconds in your blender, and it’s totally raw. I love this soup on it’s own, but it would also be delicious over zucchini noodle or pasta!




  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 1 large tomato (or 1 cup cherry tomatoes)
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter (or 3/4 cup raw almonds, soaked for 2-8 hours)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt, to taste
  • fresh basil, for garnish
  • extra virgin olive oil, for garnish


  1. Blend all of the ingredients, minus the salt, olive oil, and basil, in a blender until completely smooth. Add salt to taste.
  2. Serve at room temperature as a raw soup, or, if desired, gently warm the soup on the stove.
  3. Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and basil leaves.
