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.
