I love tomatoes and Vegan Roasted Tomato Soup is a great way to partake of them! Tomato Soup is probably my favorite soup and has been since I was a young girl. But I’m a girl who likes a lot of variety in my food. One Tomato Soup recipe is just not enough! Recently, I have been looking online for vegan and grain-free recipes and found three vegan soup recipes that turned out really well this week. This Vegan Roasted Tomato Soup uses plenty of bell peppers, onions, leeks and roasted garlic to provide flavor and thickening rather than by using dairy. It is a wonderful alternative to the traditional Tomato Basil soups with cream added at the end. While I enjoy the soup both ways, they each have their own distinct flavor. I also love the idea of roasting the tomatoes to give them additional flavor.

When I originally posted this recipe in October 2012, I was in the middle of a Daniel Fast and was trying a lot of vegan soup recipes. The original recipe used fresh corn as the thickening agent for the soup. But I wasn’t as pleased with the soup as I could have been, so when I recently updated the recipe (March 2016), I decided to omit the corn and replace it with other vegetables instead. All the while I wanted to keep the recipe vegan.

This time I made the recipe for a friend and I when we met for lunch. I roasted all the veggies prior to making the soup and also made some homemade croutons to go with it. While my croutons were not vegan, they were gluten free. But if you want to keep the recipe completely vegan, make sure you find a vegan and gluten free bread and use olive oil instead of butter when toasting the bread.

I think you’ll love this version of Vegan Roasted Tomato Soup. I find it quite a bit better than the original version. However, if you want the soup to be redder in color, I suggest using only red bell peppers, and all red vine-ripe tomatoes. Otherwise, the other colors of bell peppers and tomatoes will dilute the rich, red color. Enjoy.

I used these ingredients to garnish the soup and make homemade croutons. I also used butter, but you can use olive oil if you need to keep the recipe vegan. Be sure your gluten free bread is also vegan if you need vegan/glutenfree croutons.

    Can’t wait to try this. I made your Red velvet Cheesecake Brownies last weekend. I slightly undercooked them, but they were really good.

      Wonderful. Glad you liked them. I’m making a sweet potato soup with leeks, apples, & fresh ginger right now. Never used fresh ginger before. Can’t wait to see how it turns out!
