Creamy Vegan Roasted Tomato Soup

Prep Time: 15 Min
Cooking Time: 1 Hour 35 Min
Total Time: 1 Hour 50 Min

Servings: 6 People

Ingredients

  • 9 Roma Tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • ½ Tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Yellow Onion, diced
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • ½ Tsp Salt
  • ½ Tsp Chili Flakes
  • 2 Tsp Thyme
  • 28 oz Canned Crushed Tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 2 Cups Veggie Broth
  • 1 Cup Non-Dairy Milk

Garnish

  • Vegan Croutons
  • Coconut Milk or Vegan Cream
  • Fresh Thyme

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Cut your tomatoes in halves and place them on your baking tray.
  2. Drizzle your olive oil over your tomatoes. Sprinkle over your salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix the tomatoes around until each tomato is evenly coated. Bake your tomatoes in the oven for 1 hour. Once finished baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes.
  3. In a large pot, heat up another 2 Tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Add your onions and garlic and saute for 5-7 minutes or until your onions soften and become translucent.
  4. Add your salt, chili flakes, and thyme. Saute for an additional 1 minute. Then stir in your crushed tomatoes, sugar, and veggie broth. Mix until combined. Stir in your roasted tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.
  5. Using an immersion blender, carefully blend your mixture until there are no more chunks. You can also use a high-speed blender by carefully ladling your soup into a blender and blending it in batches. If you want a smooth soup, you can run your soup through a strainer to remove any of the fine chunks the blender did not catch.
  6. Add your non-dairy milk to your soup and stir it in until combined. Serve right away and garnish with a drizzle of vegan cream or coconut milk, vegan croutons, and a sprig of fresh thyme. Eat it alone or pair it with some vegan grilled cheese! Enjoy!
