If you have not experienced raw corn off the cob before, get ready for a good time. Soaked macadamia nuts and fresh corn come together to create this creamy and light raw soup. Add red bell peppers for a nice crunch and top with black sesame seeds.

Doesn\'t the corn have to be cooked before being added. I can understand uncooked going into the food processor, but adding a cup of uncooked corn to the soup is that digestible by the human digestive system?
