Raw Cream of Mushroom Soup
Marinate 1 lb of mushrooms (I just get a mixed bag from farmers mkt.. any kind you like will do) with ½ cup olive oil, 1 tsp sea salt, black pepper, oregano, thyme, sage, pinch nutmeg and any other herbs you may like.. for about an hour. Then, blend the entire mixture with 3 cups homemade Brazil nut milk and ½ cup pine nut cheese. You can warm this on the stove top or blend in vitamix until warm. We like to have this with peas.
