I almost didn’t post today….I’ve been sick with a really nasty cold (or flu; there were chills yesterday). But then I started craving tomato soup….an easy tomato soup. Most commercial soups have stuff in them which I choose to avoid so I needed to “cook up” something myself….and it needed to be fast.
SICK WOMAN’S BLENDER TOMATO SOUP
(Vegan, Nutritarian, Salt-free, Sugar-Free)
1 can diced salt-free tomatoes
1 raw tomato (optional; I had one I needed to use up so I threw it in)
1/2 small red pepper
2 green onions
A handful of sliced baby portabello mushrooms
1 Tablespoon salt free Italian Seasoning (I wanted Italian, but feel free to use something else and adjust accordingly)
A couple splashes of home-made almond milk (about 2 tablespoons, or 1/8 cup)
Put everything in to a high speed blender (like VitaMix or Blendtec). Run on high until heated thoroughly, about 4 minutes. Serve! Alternatively, you can puree this in a regular blender and then heat on the stove (I’m not fond of microwaves, but that would work, too) or heat everything first and then puree with an immersion blender right in the pot. Makes ONE BIG SERVING or two smaller ones.
This recipe is salt free, but I did add a little salt at the table.
Please don’t get sick just to try this recipe.
