When it comes to nutrition, the red bell pepper is the king of bell peppers. This vibrant vegetable is chock full of vitamins A and C, which are excellent for your immune system. The antioxidant responsible for that beautiful red color, beta carotene, is great for your skin and vision. Simply blend up your peppers with cashews and water for a delicious raw red pepper soup.

In the mood for soup and salad? Enjoy this alongside our Beautiful Watermelon Salad or our Raw Kale Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette.

    Can this be heated or would that effect the nutrition and/or taste?

      Rocky, Yes, it can be heated. The taste shouldn’t be effected. The nutritional data may be effected only slightly, if any. 🙂
