Simple yet delicious tomato soup.  Pair with a salad,  sandwich or eat solo.

  • 1 large can crushed tomatoes 
  • 3 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic finely chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 bay leaves 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar

In a large pot, saute onions and garlic for about 5 minutes in olive oil.  Add the crushed tomatoes, vegetable broth, bay leaves and salt.  Bring to  boil and then cover soup and lower temperature to simmer for 20 -30 minutes. Add sugar and pepper. Too add a little more flavor and a slightly creamier texture, add 1 tbsp butter which would make  it non-vegan but still vegetarian.  Sometimes a little extra touch goes a long way in taste.

Soup goes great with a spring mix or spinach salad  topped with chickpeas for plant-based protein.
