Ah tomato soup! It takes me back. To the days of making it from a packet after school. Even then it was good!
Tomato soup is one of those things that’s hard to mess up. I mean you can even make a deliciously creamy RAW version!
But nonetheless, I tried to make a vegan tomato soup where I used only fresh tomatoes, and it just didn’t come out well.
It was SO tart it was ridiculous. When you’re cooking tomatoes, this is always a possibility. You don’t really want the skins, so using canned tomatoes where it’s all been done for you is a great idea, and you may need to add a little sugar as well to offset the tartness.
So this recipe does use a little sugar, but it’s optional. If you don’t mind a bit of tartness then you can leave it out.
And as for creaminess? Well this soup is totally creamy, but there’s no cream in it!
The creaminess comes from the potatoes, but it doesn’t taste like it’s from potatoes, if you know what I mean.
It’s got such a hearty wholesome vibe going on, and it’s wonderfully satisfying and just what you want on a cold night in, or really, whatever the weather! Add in some nice bread for dipping and life is good.
How to make vegan tomato soup
It’s so easy to make this soup as you just chop everything up, sauté the onions, garlic and spices and then add everything else in at the same time, bring to the boil and then turn it down to simmer until everything is cooked.
Blend it up with an immersion blender and there you have it.
Deliciously thick creamy vegan tomato soup.
It’s tangy, full of flavor and veggie-packed goodness!
You’ll love how the flavors combine for a wonderfully rich taste and texture.
It’s also really low fat, so if you were digging into the vegan cheesecake in the afternoon and want something a little lighter in the evening, then this is a good choice!
Of course it’s wonderful as an appetizer, but it totally works as an entree too.
It’s more than satisfying enough to have as a main course.
So I think you’re going to love this easy vegan tomato soup, it is:
- Rich and Creamy
- Great as an appetizer or entree
Leftovers keep very well in the fridge and can be reheated the next day.
