I didn't even really look up a recipe online to see if there was one, so I just sort of wung it. (I think wung sounds cooler than winged).
I started out with a tomato. I put that in my chopper with some cauliflower. Then I poured some curry powder in, added some salt, and a little water so it all got pretty fine. Then I took it out of the chopper, cut off some corn, mixed it in and enjoyed with the curry crackers.

Anyway, today I made this Raw gazpacho soup. I got the recipe here: http://vegetarian.about.com/od/rawfoodsrecipes/r/rawpeppersoup.htm.
The recipe says:
5 ripe tomatoes
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1 red bell pepper
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup water
dash cayenne pepper
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 avocado, diced (optional)
Blend together all ingredients except parsley and avocado until smooth. Gently stir in avocado and parsley.
If possible, chill for at least two hours to let the flavors mingle. Serve chilled or room temperature.
I followed this pretty close, except I only had one tomato, so I just did one tomato. Also no fresh parsley, so I used dried. Oh...I did not even notice it said cayenne pepper, so I didn't put that in either. I also added two green onions, and juice from one lemon. I only used 2 tbs of water, because I figured it would be less soup, because of having less tomatoes. Oh, and I had soaked some lentils for breakfast, but hadn't eaten them all, so I probably had about 1/3 cup of soaked lentils that had been soaked for 2-3 hours.
Overall the soup was pretty tasty, and I really liked having the avocados there to add some texture.

So today I made raw taco salad. This picture really does not do it justice. I did basically the same thing as before with raw tacos, just broke up the lettuce, and I added cucumbers on Janardan's and put red peppers on mine. I put a ton more cashews in too, hoping that would make it more filling. However, the bag of one pound cashews that I used about half of for this meal was over $6, so I am beginning to worry about this raw thing being too pricey without having any homegrown veggies. Well, in the winter especially. I imagine it would be a lot more affordable during the summer.
I am still in the middle of eating it, but it already feels more filling, so that is good. And it is so tasty. The colors are so vibrant.
Edit: I finished the taco salad, and it was definitely more filling having more cashews in it. GO CASHEWS. Also, I think it may be time to start experimenting with sprouts again. But then again, maybe another few days.

So I put in 2 carrots, 1 tomato, 1 avocado, 1 green onion, dash of basil, 1/2 tsp. of cumin, and maybe 3-5 tbs. of the vinegar. Quite tasty!
