Garden Vegetable Soup


This recipe was originally an assignment for my raw food class, but I’m actually really pleased we had it for homework.  With the weather SLOWLY warming up I’m looking forward to quick and cooler meals and this chilled soup is great raw, or can easily be warmed up.  It’s also wonderful because you generally throw any veggies you’ve got lying around in the fridge to put it together.

1 tomato, seeded and chopped
