What to Expect from Sister Vegetarian Recipes...

Sister Vegetarian knows the importance of nutrition without breaking the bank. In lieu of this, I keep the meals to a cost that anyone can create and still stick to a budget. I also include raw vegan meals. Sister has acquired a Raw Vegan Chef Certfication through The Raw Food Network-Ekaya Institute of Living Food Education. I love to cook meals from Africa, India, the Middle East, Greece, Italy, and the list goes on. When I cook, I call it traveling the world without leaving my home. I see cooking as a way to experiment and learn about other cultures, as I also learn more about my roots.

Enjoy the meals. Enjoy the travel. No Passport Required. Just an appetite for delicious and healthy meals.

Peace & Love, Sister Vegetarian.

Chunky Gazpacho with Carrot Juice (Spanish Cold Soup)

Calling all soup lovers, or those who want a refreshing meal on a hot summer day. This is a quick recipe for a delicious cold soup on a hot day. This is a twist from traditional gazpacho which uses chilled tomato juice. This recipe uses chilled carrot juice for an even more flavorful meal. The soup is refreshing served cold, but don't be shy to heat it up. The flavors are even more spectacular heated for those that still love a hot soup on a spring and summer evening.

Servings: 4 to 6


1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped roughly

1 large green bell pepper, chopped

1 small onion, chopped

3 medium size garlic cloves, minced

1 14-1/2 can diced chili style tomatoes

1 quart of carrot juice, chilled ahead of time

1 15 oz can of black beans, drained

1 15 oz can of red beans, drained

2 TBSP Braggs Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1/4 tsp chipotle pepper


Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Refrigerate if needed to chill, and serve

If you prefer a warm soup, heat all the way through and serve.

Serve with Sister's vegan wheat bread, Sister's vegan corn bread, or tortillas with with a dollop of vegan sour cream
