Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup

This dairy-free tomato soup is as creamy as can be with the addition of canned coconut milk, and no, it doesn’t taste like coconut. Jarred roasted red peppers and canned San Marzano tomatoes make this dish come together in a flash. It is a forgiving soup in that if you don’t have a full onion no worries… maybe you only have one leftover celery stalk, not a big deal. Just simmer and add your favorite Simply Organic Umami Blend or any combination of Frontier Co-op or Simply Organic spices you love. Pair it with my dinner strudel/spanakopita recipe or a grilled cheese. (Thank you to our friend Stacey Swanson for creating this wonderful recipe.)

Ingredients

  • 2 28-ounce cans of crushed tomatoes (I used fire roasted and one with basil)

    3/4 - 1 cup of chopped roasted red pepper from a jar or make your own

    3-4 cups of chicken stock

    1 15-ounce can of unsweetened coconut milk

    2 ribs of celery roughly chopped

    1 medium to large carrot roughly chopped or 1/2 bag of shredded carrot

    1 sweet onion roughly chopped or a couple of shallots

    1 teaspoon or to taste of Frontier Co-op garlic flakes

    2 tablespoons or more to taste of Simply Organic Umami Blend Sweet & Smoky (you can play around with any of the spices to taste. Pizza seasoning, Herbs of Italy, Berbere, El Ras Hanout, so many options, just make sure you start with a smaller amount than is listed and adjust for taste)

    A pinch or two of Wholesome Organic sugar or coconut sugar if you like a sweeter soup

    Frontier Co-op salt & pepper to taste

     

    *Optional Garnish

    A drizzle of pomegranate molasses or balsamic syrup

    Shaved parmesan cheese if you are not dairy-free or vegan parmesan

    fresh basil

Directions

    1. In a large dutch oven sauté the carrots, celery, onion until they start to sweat and soften a bit.
    2. Add in the sweet & smoky umami blend and garlic flake and sauté a minute more while stirring.
    3. Add in your tomatoes and 3 cups of the chicken stock, pinch of sugar if using and bring to a low simmer until veggies are soft.
    4. Once veggies are cooked through, turn off the heat and add in the coconut milk.  With an immersion stick blender, blend until the soup is smooth & creamy.  Using 1 cup of reserved stock to thin out your soup to desired consistency.

    6. Serve alone or with our Spanakopita Hand Pies
