    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, minced
    • 500g tomatoes, quartered
    • 500g cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 200ml vegetable stock
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 1 sprig fresh basil, more for garnish
    • salt and pepper, to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Warm the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook and stir until soft. Add the tomatoes stirring occasionally, until they begin to lose their shape. Pour in vegetable stock, bay leaves, and basil sprig and simmer uncovered until tomatoes have broken down to a thick soup.
    2. Remove from the heat and allow to cool a little. Remove the bay leaves and discard. Transfer to a food processor, in batches if necessary, and pulse until very smooth. Pour back into the saucepan to reheat (pass the soup through a sieve at this point if desired). Garnish with fresh basil, season to taste and serve hot.


    Any tomatoes will work great for this recipe.

    My first attempt making tomato soup. Loved that I didn't need to peel the tomatoes. I only used cherry tomatoes from my garden, roasted them, and added a cup of soaked raw cashews and nutritional yeast in the blending. What resulted was a lovely, not too tomatoey, creamy like soup that was good hot or cold.  -  30 Sep 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added a 1/2 c. of almond milk and some vegan cream cheese lowly while simmering. So good.  -  16 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
