haphazard tomato soup

oster, eat your heart out.

It’s super easy.

It’s even easier if you have a Vita-Mix.

Which I do.

Jealous?

 

Dump into blender:

(You may need to heat these in a saucepan in vegetable broth until soft if you have a regular blender.)

  • Some tomatoes.  You may use canned diced tomatoes if you must.
  • Bell pepper, up to 1 whole pepper.
  • Carrot, or 2 if you prefer.
  • A splash of coconut milk for creaminess and so you don’t kill your poor blender.
  • Small to medium onion, to put hair on your chest.
  • A few cloves of garlic, to keep the vampires away.
  • Nuts, preferably cashews for protein and substance.
  • Basil, oregano, a pinch of cayenne pepper, paprika, salt and pepper to taste.

Blend like the wind, Bullseye!

If you’re using a Vita-Mix, the soup will heat on its own during the blending process.  I still like to pour into a skillet to heat until serving as the blender does froth the soup a bit.

In reality, you don’t need a recipe, and I don’t always use the same proportions and combinations.  But it is a tomato soup, and it has nuts in it, as well as a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Good luck.
