Sometimes your on a diet (sometimes?) and you want comfort food. That comfort food doesn’t necessarily mean fattening or sugary, it means the ease of popping a can and dumping in a bowl and microwaving. Soup – tomato soup. Here is my easy vegan and gluten-free No Blend Tomato Soup.
It’s The Recipe Redux time and this months theme was making a recipe for less than $3 per serving – boom, done with this recipe. So I’m on the Whole30 diet for the month and yes, I can have tomatoes. Which meant I was making a huge pot of easy soup. I’d watched my SIL make this over the holidays and she made it look super easy – she used and immersion blender. Well I don’t have one, and knew I wasn’t going to want go to the trouble of blending in the blender. What to do? Grate the onions and use mostly crushed tomatoes that’s what! This soup, because I got all the ingredients on sale, cost … wait for it … $1.62 per serving!! One huge pot, 8 servings! Win!!
Start by halving the onion and peeling the outer skin off then grating, if you have little pieces just mince those. Toss into the pot with some broth and the garlic and let cook. Then add all the tomatoes, chilies, broth, and herb d’Provence (subtle flavor), and let cook about 30 minutes. Simple and cheap! Enjoy!
