My god, does it get any easier than this?
Fresh? Check. Nutritious? Check. Delish? Check, check check!
Capsicums are high in fibre, vitamin B6, C and A, with a 149g serving delivering a whopping 317% of your RDI for Vitamin C and 93% for vitamin A. Like most vegetables, it’s low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. Capsicums also contain Vitamin K, thiamin, tiboflavin, niacin, potassium, manganese, Vitamin E and folate.
I made this for dinner the other night. I’d barely gotten over ‘hump day Wednesday’ and just couldn’t be ass-ed doing much of anything. The cashews give a nice thick creamy texture. They’re a tried and true substitute for cream – whether in soups or desserts.
Raw Capsicum Cashew Bisque
2 chopped red capsicums
handful soaked cashews
1/2 cup water
sea salt, to taste
Blitz ingredients in powerful blender.
I then garnished with some shredded zucchini, but you can put whatever you like on top!
Best enjoyed immediately, but I took leftovers for lunch the next day and it still tasted yum.
