Vegan Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

October 11, 2014Teresa

 Gluten Free Living – 2014

Vegan Roasted Tomato Basil Soup is really awesome. This is a delightfully healthy soup that’s wonderful comfort food. Now that fall is here in North Texas it’s time to crank out the soup recipes. I have to admit I really enjoy soups and chowders. I eat them all year round – even here in hot, hot Texas! I especially enjoy them for lunches but I typically make a soup for dinner and then eat the leftovers for a few days afterward.

This is a savory and delicious Tomato Basil Soup recipe. It uses roasted vegetables to increase the flavor. I included garlic, tomatoes, leeks, onions and bell peppers. It also has typical herbs like basil and parsley. Just a sprinkling of crushed red pepper adds needed heat to spice up the soup.

Soups have only in recent years become one of my favorite foods. Back in 2009 and 2010 I had to have gum grafts on both sides of my bottom teeth (the result of brushing my teeth too vigorously over the years). As a result, I had surgery on one side in December 2009 and on the other side in March 2010. I wasn’t allowed to eat fresh vegetables and fruits for months at a time. So I started making soups and learned to enjoy them.

When I was growing up Mom never served soup. I’m not sure why. She told me her mom served soup before every lunch and dinner meal when she was growing up. They worked hard on their family farm and needed lots of food just to keep their weight up.

Anyway, I didn’t grow up eating soups. For the first 30 years of our marriage I rarely ever made soup. I made Clam Chowder infrequently but that was about it until five years ago. Now I make soup all the time and I comb through my pins on Pinterest frequently looking for new recipes to try.

Tomato Basil Soups are some of my favorite soup recipes. I have several you may want to try, including: La Madeleine’s Tomato-Basil Soup, Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup, Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, Vegan Roasted Tomato Soup, and Vegan Roasted Tomato Basil Vegetable Soup.

All are a little bit different with distinctive tastes and textures. My new Vegan Roasted Tomato Basil Soup is a great recipe to try if you love Tomato Basil Soups. It has the perfect blend of seasonings and is simple and easy to make, too. Give it a try and enjoy a cup of hot soup before a blazing fire this fall.

I initially published this recipe in October 2014. I recently remade this recipe for my son and his wife for lunch after church one Sunday. I served it with my husband’s best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. My daughter-in-law loved the soup. When I originally made the recipe, I added almond milk. This time I left it out and actually liked the soup better.

I had leftovers (which I always aim for!). I served the leftovers with some Rosemary Tomato Focaccia Bread and then some Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread. Oh my! Cornbread crumbled into soup or chili is the best! The jalapenos amped up the flavors even more. I loved it!

Recipe Notes

NOTE: I used 21 average sized Roma tomatoes.

NOTE: You can add Almond Milk after pureeing the soup if you want a creamier texture. I personally preferred the soup without it.

NOTE:  If you choose to add almond milk, I recommend Califia Farms rather than Almond Breeze. Almond Breeze contains carageenan which causes cancer. It is also mostly water.
