Healthy tomato soup recipe

Healthy tomato soup

This healthy tomato soup recipe is a super satisfying meal that is enough to fill you up as a main meal, as a starter or as a great snack to warm you up and keep you going on a cold road trip. It is really easy to make, and all you need is to choose whether you want a spicy tomato soup, a vegan tomato soup or something in between.

This basic recipe uses roasted red peppers than normally come in a jar, which add a super exciting taste to the soup. Using Italian tinned tomatoes also adds to the experience, although if you cannot find Italian canned tomatoes you can probably use whatever else you can get. You could of course also use fresh tomatoes to make this soup even fresher, but it would be a bit more work as you would first have to remove the skins from the tomatoes. Still, don’t let me stop you!

The use of rice in the recipe provides a creamy texture to the soup,  so that you can actually make a creamy vegan tomato soup without actually using cream, milk or flour.

The basic recipe below gives you a vegan cream of tomato soup that will really feed your taste buds. The basic recipe is of course also a vegetarian tomato soup recipe as it is a dairy free tomato soup. This tomato soup recipe is also quite a thick tomato soup. You can always thin it down by using more water if you prefer.

Spicy tomato soup recipe

You can add the half a jalapeno in the basic recipe to create a super spicy vegan tomato soup that remains healthy and invigorating. The choice is yours but it will definitely wake you up!

Optional yoghurt chaser

If you add the blended spicy yoghurt option you can create a double spice (if you add the jalapeno in the soup as well), or a half cooling half spicing effect which really adds a different dimension to this tomato soup. But it is no longer a vegan soup, obviously.

Prep Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

For basic creamy Vegan tomato soup

  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 340g roasted red peppers (in a jar)
  • 2 x 400 g tins chopped Italian tomatoes
  • 100g basmati rice

Optional for a SPICY tomato soup

  • ½ red jalapeno pepper, sliced

Optional non-vegan add-ons

  • 200ml fat-free Greek yoghurt
  • ½ red jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Some fresh coriander leaves

Instructions

    1. Slice the spring onions and add them to a suitably sized saucepan with the olive oil and some coriander stalks.
    2. Add the crushed garlic and cook for a few minutes.
    3. Then add the drained roasted peppers, the canned tomatoes and the rice. Add 750ml of hot water and season to taste with some salt and pepper. If you wish to make a spicy tomato soup then add the ½ sliced red jalapeno.
    4. Then simmer with a lid on for about 25-30 minutes.
    5. Using a hand blender, blend into a soup. If it is too thick for your liking then add some more water to dilute.

    Non-vegan option

    1. If you wish to spice it up a bit more or make a non-vegan option, then blend the yoghurt, ½ jalapeno, some coriander and the lemon juice into a tasty, runny sauce. Use this to drip into your soup.

Notes

Serve up with some chopped coriander, sliced jalapeno or spring onions or all three as garnish.


This soup is a quickly made snack that is great as a starter or even an evening meal with some nice garlic bread.

It has the option of being super spicy or just super healthy. It can be vegetarian, vegan, spicy or just tomato soup. The options are there to choose what you want.
