What goes good with creamy tomato soup?
When I was younger I enjoyed tomato soup so much. Tomato soup was a staple in my house. One thing I love to eat tomato soup with is crunchy vegan garlic bread! I love the crunch and the buttery flavor of garlic bread. Another great addition to a vegan tomato soup is vegan BLTs.
What goes in the soup?
28 Oz can of peeled or diced tomatoes - This is the base of the recipe, so it is important you use a brand you like and trust. Also, keep in mind that if you do not want your soup too salty make sure you grab unsalted and add the amount you like.
1 medium white onion - This gives the soup a nice rich onion flavor. If you enjoy onions like I do feel free to add more!
1/4 Cup Basil - This is for basil leaves not dried basil. If you are using dried basil reduce it to 1/8 since it is much more compact.
3 Cloves of garlic - This can be replaced with minced garlic you have some handy. The flavor will be brought out once the onion and garlic are sauteed in the pan.
~1/2 cup of plant-based milk - I say approximately because if you want more creamy rich flavor in the soup more must be added.
How long does the recipe last?
The vegan tomato soup will last around 2-3 days in the refrigerator. If it lasts. I usually eat it in one sitting!
If you are meal prepping this can be stored for about 2 months in the freezer. All you have to do is heat it up when and you are ready to eat.
28 Oz can of peeled or diced tomatoes
1 medium white onion
1/4 Cup Basil
3 cloves of garlic
~1/2 cup of plant-based milk (see details above)
Dice the onions, basil, and garlic to a quarter-sized amount. The size does not matter because the contents are going to be blended.
Place the onions and garlic into a frying pan and sautee until the onions are translucent.
After sauteeing the onions and garlic add plant-based milk to the pan with the chopped basil. Let the mixture simmer until reduced by half.
Once the milk is reduced add the tomatoes and bring to a simmer.
Reduce heat and let the mixture cool enough for a food processor or blender to handle.
Add the contents of the pan to a blender or a food processor and blend smooth.
Once smooth add the contents back to a large pan and add the salt and pepper to taste!
