Creamy Vegan Tomato Soup

Have you ever looked at a can of tomato soup at the grocery store?

Store-Bought Tomato Soup

As you can see, the store-bought tomato soup has gluten, soy, and high fructose corn syrup. Yet, they have a “Healthy” label on the can. Poor me!

Tomato Paste

Creamy Vegan Tomato Soup

This organic, BPA-FREE can lining tomato paste by Muir Glen (my favorite) has only 2 ingredients. Tomatoes & citric acid.  Am I thrilled about the citric acid…not really. However, there are no added sugars, gluten, or any other non-sense in the can.

For under $2, you can have a bowl of tomato soup! You can’t beat that!

Ingredients

  • 1 6 oz Organic Tomato Paste BPA Free Can
  • 1 cup CRU's Homemade Veggie Broth or store-bought organic veggie broth
  • 1/2 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk optional (use whatever plant milk suits you or add more veggie broth)
  • 1/2 tsp Organic Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Organic Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Organic Onion Powder
  • Himalayan Pink Salt to taste
  • Organic Black Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Organic Red Pepper Flakes optional

Surprise Toppings

  • 1 tbsp Organic Hemp Seeds optional (but provides protein & is delish)
  • 1 tbsp Organic Ground Flaxseed optional (but it bulks up the soup & is yummy)

Instructions

  • In a saucepan, add all of the ingredients except the toppings
  • Stir well and allow the soup to heat up to your desired temp. It would serve you well to heat it up nice and hot to add to your soup thermos & then go to school or work with. Should be pretty warm even at lunch time.
  • When you're ready to eat your soup, add the toppings at that time. Enjoy!

Notes

Seasoning

Sometimes, I will add cayenne pepper, Cajun seasoning, or Homemade Sazon to the soup to spice it up and change the flavor.
Adapt the spices to your fancy!

Why Use Seeds in the Recipe?

Flaxseeds are a very important food item for our diet. We actually require about 1 tbsp of organic flaxseed every day. They have protein, healthy omega fats, fiber, they can help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, and contain lignans that may help reduce cancer.
Hemp seeds contain many of those same benefits! Hemp seeds are also a complete source of protein. Not to mention, they make the tomato soup taste amazing!!!
The seeds actually help bulk up the tomato soup and make it very filling. So, if you are giving this recipe to children, you could probably safely divide the recipe in half, especially if you're going to pack other items in the lunch like my Chickpea Salad Sammich).

Plant Milks

I know all too well what having a nut allergy is like. I was deathly allergic to coconuts and my younger siblings are deathly allergic to all nuts.
While I no longer suffer from coconut allergies (because I healed my gut which usually takes care of food allergies & sensitivities), I also know that some schools don't allow products containing nuts or you (or a loved one) has a nut allergy.
So, what do you do when you're vegan and can't consume products containing nuts? Look at seeds...and here are some other plant milk ideas too.
Plant milks that are nut free:
  • Flaxseed milk (I am curious to try this one)
  • Hemp milk (not as creamy as you would like but still good)
  • Oat milk (great milk, especially when homemade...very affordable/easy to make. You can even make it gluten free)
  • Rice milk (is ok, in my honest opinion)
  • Quinoa milk (may be a little watery tasting to you, it is for me)
  • Pea milk (I'd love to try this, as it has raving reviews)

Happy Slurping!
