VEGAN TOMATO SOUP MADE WITH TINNED TOMATOES


This simple and quick soup is made with tinned tomatoes, which are also known as canned tomatoes.

It's on the table in under 30 minutes and with a swirl of cream it is very similar to THAT famous tomato soup which unfortunately isn't suitable for vegans.

It's rich, with a deep tomato flavour cut through with a swirl of cream.

It's made with just 5 basic ingredients you probably have in your fridge and cupboard right now.

It's very tasty, doesn't cost much to make, it's low calorie and it's great for lunch.


WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE VEGAN TOMATO SOUP

  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Tomato puree
  • Vegetable stock
  • Salt & Pepper

WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED?


This is one of those soups that really is much nicer if it is silky and smooth.

Once the soup is made, you can blend it in the pan with an electric stick blender, in a blender or in a food processor.

If you don't have any of these options, you could push it through a sieve once it has cooled a little.

TINNED TOMATOES


This really is a store cupboard recipe. 

Apart from the onion and garlic, which are basic ingredients everyone usually has, all the ingredients are from the larder.

Instead of fresh tomatoes, this recipe calls for tinned tomatoes, which are also known as canned tomatoes.

It's a quick way to make a tasty, nutritious meal that everyone will love.

You can use tinned plum or chopped tomatoes. 

If you use plum tomatoes, break them up with a wooden spoon while the soup is cooking. It doesn't matter how finely you break them up as it will be whizzed smooth.

VEGAN CREAM


What elevates this soup and makes it more like THAT famous tomato soup, is a swirl of cream added before it's served.

I used Alpro single soya cream, but you can use whatever cream you usually buy.

I buy little tetra packs of this cream and keep them in my store cupboard, but you can often also find them in the chilled cabinets at the supermarket.

It's just a pouring cream and doesn't whip, so don't get excited and think that this is one you can whip up thick and serve on a cake or other dessert.

HOW LONG WILL VEGAN TOMATO SOUP KEEP?


This is a small batch soup, but it can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days.

If you're keeping it in the fridge, don't add the cream.


CAN THIS SOUP BE FROZEN?


This soup can be frozen in freezer bags or airtight tubs in the freezer for 3-4 months.

To defrost, remove a portion from the freezer and leave it in the fridge overnight.

Reheat, then add the swirl of cream.


LUNCH BOX SOUP


This soup is perfect to add to your lunch box.

Either take it in a microwave-friendly tub with a tight seal, to heat at work or take hot in a flask.

You could also take some cream in a little bento-style dressing bottle (they are teeny weeny) or in a little tub.

  3. What super simple, easy to make recipe! I love tomato soup but I don't always have ready made available, or all the fresh tomatoes needed to make it from scratch. This is a super alternative!
