Slimming vegan tomato soup is low calorie and protein rich to help keep you full. Make this creamy, dreamy soup in 10 minutes and with only 6 ingredients.
I love this tomato soup! Part of the reason is that it's just so easy to make. I make it quite often for lunch on a Monday, so that I can have it throughout the week. I usually pair it with a vegan grilled cheese or roasted vegetables, depending on my mood. This soup is comfort food indeed.
Can the words comfort and slimming describe the same recipe? Yes they can!
I get comfort from having a steaming bowl of creamy tomato soup in front of me, especially on a cold day. I like to hold the bowl for a moment before diving in, just to feel the warmth on my hands.
So where does the slimming part come in?
This soup is great if you are trying to lose a few pounds or if you are just trying to eat a bit healthier after an overindulgence (I've been there). Each serving has only 80 calories and 2 grams of fat. Not bad, huh?
Plus, there is about 4 grams of protein per serving due to the addition of silken tofu. If you are like me, you will have at least 2 servings and sprinkle Nutritional Yeast on top. If you haven't tried nutritional yeast, then you simply must. It has a wonderful cheesy flavor and is full of protein and nutrients.
What do you need?
This recipe requires only 6 ingredients, minus the salt. You will need:
28 oz can of whole peeled tomatoes
1 roasted red bell pepper or about ½ cup (jarred works great)
8 oz silken tofu
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
salt to taste
How to make Slimming Vegan Tomato Soup
This recipe couldn't get any easier. You simply put everything in a high speed blender and blend. I love my Vitamix because it has a soup option that blends and heats the soup for you.
It's so satisfying to open the lid and have a steamy hot soup right away. But no worries if you don't have that option. You can simply blend, and then heat on the stove in a saucepan.
I eat this soup warm, but I bet it would be great cold too. Garnish with fresh basil or thyme and a sprinkle of Nutritional Yeast.
I hope you try this super easy recipe for Slimming Vegan Tomato Soup! And don't forget to let me know what you think.
