Sweet n' Spicy Raw Tomato Basil Soup

Is there anything better than hot Tomato Soup in the Winter? This is such a comfort food and it's full of health benefits making it a great medicinal food for a winter cold!

Tomatoes are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and blood purifiers. Basil is an anti-inflammatory, helps combat respiratory disorders and reduce fevers. Oregano, (which is optional in the recipe here as it is a very strong oil, so if your brave enough to use it, only add a few drops at a time) is an anti-viral, anti-bacterial, good for infections, pain and inflammation.  

This recipe takes about 15 minutes from start to finish, so it's easy to blend up a bowl of yumminess!
