This seriously simple weeknight meal was inspired by one of my favourite childhood tomato soups.. but since I don't always have the time to roast tomatoes and they're not always in season and ok- lets face it, I'm a lazy cook, this version came into being.
I love the combination of the rich tomato with creamy almond that elevates it without making it fatty and heavy. This is perfect with a nice slice of crusty bread but since gluten isn't my friend I've enjoyed it with many a brown rice cracker.
'Creamy' Tomato and Almond SoupMakes 2 serves
2 cups vegetable stock (make sure you use a good one!)
2 cups almond milk
400 ml passatta/tomato puree (or 1 x 400g can of tomatoes blended)
Freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 tsp asafoetida (or dried onion and garlic if you wish)
- Combine all ingredients in a pot
So that's my cheats tomato soup. What's your favourite soup? Do you have any yummy tomato soup recipes I should try?
Love and Smiles,
