Tips for making this tomato

  • I made this vegan tomato soup using fresh tomatoes. Don’t use tomatoes from a can. I absolutely forbid it, lol. This soup is best with freshly roasted tomatoes
  • I highly recommend using campari tomatoes (AKA tomatoes on the vine).
  • Don’t skip the red bell pepper because it adds a different texture and flavor to the tomato sauce.
  • You can roast the veggies and freeze them until you are ready to make the soup.
  • I don’t use vegetable broth in this recipe. It’s not necessary because roasting the tomatoes + bell peppers brings out their natural juices.
  • Add olive oil, salt and pepper to the tomatoes and bell pepper before roasting. It will flavor both from the inside out.

What are Campari tomatoes?

– They are often sold as “tomatoes on the vine” in supermarket

– Campari tomatoes are sweeter in taste, have less acid and pulp, making them perfect for a healing tomato soup

– They have the deepest red color of many tomatoes

Questions about making this healing tomato soup?

Can vegans eat tomato soup?

Yes, they can eat tomato soup if it is not made with heavy cream, dairy or chicken stock. Plant based soups are vegan friendly.
For my recipe, I used coconut milk and juices from the roasting. If stock is needed, I always go with coconut water first before using stock.
Canned tomato soups are not vegan friendly because many use dried milk powder and/or other dairy products. Also, some will mention that they use chicken stock which is not vegan friendly

How do you thicken tomato soup?

– Full fat coconut milk will thicken tomato soup. For best results, whip up the coconut milk using an immersion blender or hand blender before adding it to the soup
– You can also make roux which is basically a flour and vegan butter mixture. Mix equal parts of both in a small sauce pan. The oven heat should be very low When they have mixed well together and have a light brown color, slowly pour the tomato soup into the pan.

Can I add pasta to tomato soup?

Yes, absolutely! I love adding cooked elbow macaroni to tomato soup.
Make sure you have drained all the water from the macaroni completely before adding it to this healing tomato soup. It might be soggy otherwise.

What are campari tomatoes good for?

– Soups
Tomato tarts
Pasta Pomodoro
Bean Salad
Make your own ketchup
Marinara Sauce

If making roux is confusing, watch me make it in my jackfruit corn chowder. To make your life easier, I queued it up to the exact moment in the video where I make the roux. 🙂
I always read the ingredients before opening a can of tomato sauce. This way, I can judge if it’s vegan, vegetarian or meat-related. If you are confused about what products are vegan, consult my “what vegans don’t eat” guide.

You can add homemade croutons to it, but it tastes amazing by itself too.

Alternatives to Coconut Milk

  • Almond milk, hazelnut milk or any nut milk
  • Blend about 1 Tbsp of silken tofu with 1/2 tsp of nutritional yeast. Pour the mixture into your tomato soup
  • Mix 1/2 tsp of chick pea flour with 1 Tbsp of vegan yogurt. Blend until there are no lumps. Pour into the tomato soup. This is assuming that you are making 2 cups of tomato soup.
  • The liquid you get in a can of chickpeas. Whip it up until you get peaks. This is called aquafaba and it’s the perfect base for many soups.

Spice not, the soup is fine!

This recipe has only a little bit of black pepper in it. If you want to go the spicy route, here are some of my favorite spices to add to it. Add them at the end when you have the soup heating on medium heat and 1 minute before you turn off the stove.

  • Smoked paprika
  • Red Pepper
  • Chili pepper
  • Red pepper flakes

When I served this healing tomato soup, I added a few red pepper flakes for garnish with fresh basil. It adds to the presentation and makes the soup look so much more appetizing.

    Over the years, I have cooked with so many tomatoes!  If I were to gather all the tomatoes, I am sure it could easily fill five football fields.

    Other than this healing tomato soup, I have some more favorite tomato recipes.  Here are just a few of my favorite!

    Pickled Tomatoes

    This recipe is very recent, but, it remains my favorite photograph of all time.  It showcases all the vibrancy that is the tomato! You will want to eat the whole jar of pickled tomatoes.

    Bombay Potatoes

    I love this recipe because tomatoes and potatoes work so well together.  Bombay Potatoes my favorite Indian food recipe of all time.

    Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

    Once again, potatoes and tomatoes come together in a creamy butter sauce to make a perfect comfort food recipe.  Sun-dried tomatoes are exactly what these fingerling potatoes needed.

    Green Tomato Pie

    If you think tomato in granola is odd, then, you might think the same of this green tomato pie.  But, its a really good recipe that tastes amazing! (the pic doesn’t do it justice!)
