Vegan Roasted Tomato Basil Vegetable Soup

2013 – Gluten Free Living

Vegan Roasted Tomato Basil Vegetable Soup is a wonderfully, tasty soup filled with lots of roasted tomatoes and other roasted vegetables like garlic, bell peppers, leeks, onions, mushrooms, celery and carrots, and seasoned with lots of fresh herbs.

I am a huge tomato lover–I like them raw, in salads, cooked in sauces, soups, and casseroles–anyway tomatoes can be made–I enjoy them. The roasting of the vegetables concentrates the taste and further flavors this delicious soup. This chunky vegetable soup has excellent taste and is even better reheated the second day.

I was wanting to make a chunky tomato and vegetable soup but not one that’s pureed like most tomato basil soups so I came up with this concoction a month or so ago. This is the second time I’ve made this great recipe. The first time I made it with coconut milk.

Yesterday, I forgot the coconut milk and thinned it with water instead. Coconut milk makes the texture a little creamier. For those who aren’t vegan you can use cream or even Greek yogurt to give it a creamier texture. I wanted to keep the calories lower so I used vegetable stock and water as the base.

If you’re looking for tasty, healthy, low calorie, gluten free, vegan recipes to assist your weight loss goals for this year, Vegan Roasted Tomato Basil Vegetable Soup is one of those that will do it.

When I originally posted this recipe in January 2013, I was still using an iPhone for a camera so the pictures weren’t very clear. I recently remade this recipe (January 2016) for a New Member’s Luncheon at our church. I made a double batch (as the pictures below will show) and I’m still getting people  tell me (a month later) how much they loved this recipe.

One guy asked me what one of the veggies in the soup was. He thought it was artichokes but actually it was the leeks! I think fresh artichokes would probably taste wonderfully in this soup too, if you can get them. The main change I made to the recipe this time was placing all the roasted vegetables into the crockpot to finish cooking and blending the flavors.

I hope you give this recipe a try. It’s so scrumptious you will want bowl after bowl.
