Now’s the time of year when tasks like taxes and spring cleaning are taking up valuable kitchen time. That’s why I’m re-sharing a Dairy-Free Cream of Tomato Soup today that literally takes all of five minutes from start to finish, thanks to a high-speed blender.
Basil is also coming into season with the warmer days of spring, so I made it a highlight of this recipe.
You might even have all of the ingredients in your pantry, including boxed or jarred tomatoes, dried herbs, and nuts or avocado. Feel free to use dried basil if you don’t have any fresh leaves.
This recipe is definitely reminiscent of the canned tomato soups I ate when I was younger, but so much healthier with clean, real ingredients. I’ve been playing around with nutrition data too, and included a label for this recipe. There’s actually 16 grams or protein in one serving, so this soup would make an excellent mini-meal or side dish. A scoop of collagen protein would help make it a meal with more staying power.
I’m glad you liked my explanation of why I’ve been experimenting with grain-free recipes, too. Another test I did with my functional medicine doctor looked at my current food sensitivities. Thankfully, tomatoes weren’t on the immune-reactivity list, but garlic was. Wah! He suggested removing any foods from the suspect list from my diet for 6 weeks, and then re-introducing then one at a time. Want to me to talk more about my experience with functional medicine? Let me know in the comments! It’s been a wild ride, but with some interesting and helpful results so far.
Anywho, here’s the recipe for today.Print
An easy blender Dairy-Free Cream of Tomato soup that can be made in minutes.
- Combine the tomatoes, nuts OR avocado, herbs, and water in the pitcher of a blender.
- Blend for 30 seconds on high or until the ingredients become fully combined with a creamy texture.
- Blend the soup for an additional 4 minutes until steaming hot, OR transfer mixture to a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer.
- Serve hot, with freshly-ground black pepper, if desired.
*If you do not have a high-speed blender such as a Blendtec, I recommend using the avocado instead of the nuts to ensure you have a creamy texture to your soup.
