Creamy Tomato Soup

One of the stars of our impromptu potluck the other night was this soup.  Earlier in the day, I decided to make a vegan asparagus quiche, and asked my blog’s Facebook fans what they thought I should serve with it.  Tomato soup was suggested, and I decided to look for a low-fat, vegan recipe.  I found one on this funky blog, Foodie Fiasco, written by a 14 year-old!  That little chica has skillz!  It was quick and easy to make and killer-yummy.  We ran out of soup before we ran out of the desire to eat more of it!  I made it pretty much exactly as written, and wouldn’t change a thing.

Assemble a few pantry staples and you’ll have this savory soup in no time!

ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 average-sized cloves)
  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes (I used two 140z cans, one of which was fire roasted–yum!)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • ½ cup almond milk  (I used light soy)
  • salt and pepper, to taste

In a large pot, saute onion in 2-3 TBSP veggie broth over medium-high heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute another minute.

Add the tomatoes, basil, oregano, and  cider vinegar.  Bring to a boil.

Stir in broth and non-dairy milk.  Bring to a boil again.  Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.

Use an immersion blender to puree the soup to your desired consistency.  Alternately, you could blend in a regular blender in small batches, being especially careful with the hot soup.  Let the soup simmer a while longer for the flavors to really blend.

Serve it up with a slice of quiche, a sandwich, a salad or just get a big ol’ bowl and make it a meal!  Try this soup just once, and you won’t want canned tomato soup ever again!
