There is nothing more comforting than homemade tomato basil soup served with a grilled cheese sandwich. (Click Here for my vegan grilled cheese sandwich recipe)
If you are interested in creating this homemade tomato basil soup with a more sophisticated twist, simply garish with basil leaves, your choice of chopped herbs, grated Vegan Parmesan cheese; or top with a swirl of vegan sour cream like I did.
This recipe is creamy and super easy to make, a hearty lunch or dinner option.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 head onion chopped
- 1 small clove garlic
- 25 oz pureed tomatoes
- 10 oz water
- 2 tsp fresh basil
- 1 tsp thyme dried
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper ground
Fry the chopped onions in 1 tbsp oil for a few minutes until they turn light brown.
Add all the ingredients to a small soup pot. Stir and cover.
Cook for 25-30 minutes. Taste while cooking and add salt/pepper if needed.
Top with a swirl of vegan sour cream and fresh basil leaves.
Serve with a few slices of fresh bread or grilled cheese sandwich.
