My First Raw Soup

I like hot soup. Hot, steaming, comforting soups that warm your belly and fill you up. I never thought I would like cold soup, I have never even eaten chilled cucumber soup. I just thought it would taste like...COLD, OLD, conventional soup. But today, I made Ani Phyo's Creamy Mushroom Bisque, with a few alterations. And it was AMAZING!!
FOR 1:

Bisque Base
1/4 C Brazil Nuts
1/8 C EVOO<<<<<<<<< I only did this because I ran out of Olive Oil, but it was quite good
1/8 C liquid coconut oil<<
1 t minced garlic
1 T nutritional yeast
3/4 C water

Bisque Toppings
1 C mushrooms, I used white button
drizzles of olive oil
Nama Shoyu or Braggs for marinade
1 T fresh herbs, her recipe calls for Thyme but I used cilantro because it was what I had.

Start by marinating your mushroom pieces. Toss them with oil and nama shoyu. Set aside to marinate at least 30 minutes.

Blend nuts, oil, garlic, salt, and water, and nutritional yeast until smooth. I also added just a single mushroom here for color.

Chill soup for a bit and then pour over toppings, or let it heat up blending if that's what you're into.

It was nummy as hell.
