When writing Paleo Soups & Stews, I knew I had to include at least one recipe for Tomato Soup. I wound up including three, because I am such an overachiever. (lolz) This Roasted Pepper Tomato Soup is the combination of two of them.
To be completely honest, my favorite tomato soup is the combination of the two versions from the book! The Tomato Soups in Paleo Soups & Stews are: Tomato Basil, Tomato Roasted Pepper, and a hearty Tuscan Tomato. When I make Tomato Soup at home, this Roasted Pepper Tomato Soup is what I usually wind up making.
Let’s be real- Few things compete with the comfort food perfection of grilled cheese and tomato soup. This is exactly the soup I make when I’m craving that. It’s got everything I want in tomato soup: Silky smooth texture, sweetness from the tomatoes, depth of flavor from the roasted peppers, and the perfect herby punch from the basil.
I typically use heavy cream, but you can sub coconut milk or your favorite dairy-free alternative instead if you don’t do dairy. And to make it vegan, you can use veggie broth instead of chicken.
Craving more soup? I always am! Some of my favorites are Tuscan Tomato Soup, Harvest Chicken Soup, and Burmese Chicken Noodle Soup. And of course you’ll find all the soups (and breads and fun additions and fun garnishes and toppings!) your little heart desires in my third cookbook, Paleo Soups & Stews.Print
