Chances are, sometime in your life, you have had creamy tomato soup. Whether it was your mom trying to force feed it to you as a child or wrapped up in front of the fireplace on a cold winters night. And from this, you have warm and fuzzy memories and a real love for tomato soup (or at least I hope so). But you have decided at some point to go vegan, and all of those warm fuzzy memories came crashing down while trying to find the perfect recipe.
Well fear not my friends, for I have come to save the day!
Creamy tomato soup with lentils, sounds easy? That's because it is!
To make this recipe you will need 11 ingredients, and 30 minutes. You will also need some basic kitchen utensils and pots. Don't forget to have a spare spoon handy to 'test' your soup as you make it - this is my secret code word for snacking as I go, I simply can't resist!
For the base of your soup, you will have olive oil and onion. Many people get wary around oils, but olive oil is high in mono-saturated fats (the good kind!) and high in antioxidants. All things should be used in moderation, but don't be shy with this one.
We then layer in paprika, bay leaves, and lentils. This provides us with great taste as well as some daily essential nutrients such as iron, vitamin A, vitamin E, potassium, and calcium. Bay leave are also known for their anti-inflammatory properties and detoxify the body.
To serve, we add some coconut milk. This acts as the icing on the cake in both taste and nutritional value. By adding coconut milk, we are nourishing our bodies with a healthy dose of fibre, vitamin C, magnesium, and a whole bunch of minerals (too many to list).
This creamy tomato soup with lentils is the perfect appetiser or light meal because it's:
Once you have prepared your creamy tomato soup, you can store any leftovers (if you don't go back for seconds) in an airtight container for 3-4 days. You may also wish to make a big batch up and store it in the freezer - perfect for planning ahead or last minute meals. This recipe will make one serve but if you require more, simply increase the ingredients list to meet your needs.
So please, I urge you to head to the kitchen and whip up some of the incredible creamy tomato soup. You will thank yourself later!
