Vegan Tomato Soup…

Hello Dear Friends,

Sorry to have taken so long to get this yummy recipe posted!! Our family has not only had a fun run of colds and stomach bugs….but we have had a series of emergencies with our extended family. God is in control and I am being reminded to do all in His timing!! 🙂 Thank you Jesus for such good lessons!! 🙂

We praise Him in the good and we praise Him in the bad. 🙂  “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thess. 5:16-18)

Now I pray you will enjoy this incredible recipe!!! 🙂

Vegan Tomato Soup

Here’s a pic of my Vegan Tomato Soup. It is a variation of the recipe listed below from:

veganyumminess.com/creamy-tomato-soup

I followed the recipe and added/adjusted:

additional blended garlic, extra cashews, extra pepper and Himalayan sea salt, fresh basil, canned coconut heaby cream and fresh pureed garden tomatoes.

Our family loved it and clean the huge pot every time I make it!! 🙂

Thanks so much Vegan Yumminess, it’s a home run!!

As in the picture above, we served ours with a slice of toasted vegan sourdough bread…YUM!! 🙂

Have a great day in the Lord,

Vegan Creamy Tomato Soup
Author: Lindsay Rey
Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 3-4
Ingredients
  • 1 cup diced onion (about ½ onion, diced)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon + 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (divided, optional)
  • ½ cup raw cashews (soaked for a few hours, if you’re not using a high-speed blender)
  • ½ cup water
  • 4½ cups stewed tomatoes (about three 14.5 ounce cans)
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1½ teaspoon dried basil (or a few tablespoons of fresh, if you have it)
  • ¾ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
Instructions
  1. In a pan, saute onion and garlic in 1 teaspoon olive oil for 1 to 2 minutes, just until they are soft and fragrant.
  2. Place cashews and water in blender. Blend on high for about 30 seconds, or until the mixture is fairly smooth and creamy. If you need more liquid, add a cup or two of your stewed tomatoes and blend again until all the cashew pieces have disappeared.
  3. Add your sauteed onion/garlic and remaining stewed tomatoes to blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour blender contents into a saucepan on medium to medium-high heat. As soup begins to simmer, stir frequently to prevent lumpiness and burning. Simmer for about 8-10 minutes, or until soup color has darkened slightly.
  5. Add remaining ingredients: 1 tablespoon olive oil, coconut milk, granulated sugar, dried basil, and salt to your saucepan.
  6. Taste for salt and serve immediately–preferably with hot grilled vegan cheese sandwiches.
