Fresh tomato soup is most of the time vegan. At least I would not know any reason why not. With so much fresh veggies it is totally not necessary to add cream to this, right?
Anti Hangover Soup?
After a fiercely Carnaval I was really looking forward to a nice big pan full of health. Did you know that tomatoes boost your liver functions? We can sure use that after drinking all that beer...
I had some vegan pesto wrap leftovers so we ate that on the side. Yammie!
1.5 kg tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
2 stalks of celery
handful of fresh basil
salt / pepper / Italian Herbs
twig of rosemary
1 vegetable stock cube
Drizzle some olive oil in a soup pan. Fry the garlic and the onion on a medium heat. Chop the celery, carrot, courgette and add this to the pan. Cut the tomatoes in four. They also can go into the pan.
Season with some Italian herbs, pepper / salt, rosemary, basil and stir. Add one liter of water, the vegetable stock cube and bring it to a boil. Let this cook for 15 minutes on a low heat. Remove the rosemary and puree the soup with a blender.
Ps: I made soup balls to add some extra protein to the soup.
I did this with vegan minced (for example Naturli). Just season the minced with some salt and pepper and make little balls of it. After puree the soup you can add them and let the soup cook on a low heat for another 5 minutes.
Decorate with some fresh basil!
