Tomato Soup

Yesterday felt like fall and after spending most of the afternoon grocery shopping (it involves 4 stores since we went GFCF), I really wanted a big bowl of soup.

This recipe for Tomato Soup looked like it would be simple and delicious and I had all the ingredients so I tried it. Bean ran in the kitchen asking what smelled so good when I started cooking the carrots, onions and garlic. He was once the pickiest eater I've ever met because of his sensory processing disorder. The GFCF diet calmed his sensory issues and we learned how to enlist the help of his very strong sense of smell.

Our secret is garlic. He loves the smell of garlic and will usually try anything we put it in. I put a little extra garlic in this soup. Shhh.

After adding the tomatoes and other ingredients, cook the soup for a while to soften everything up. Then puree it in the blender. (*Cool the soup first or fill the blender only half full. You don't even want to see the mess I made processing this blender full of hot soup.)

The recipe calls for cream at this point. I wanted to substitute almond milk but didn't have any so I used Flaxmilk. It worked beautifully and added some good Omega 3s.

Everyone enjoyed a bowl last night and Java and Bean packed a thermos of it in their lunches today. This is definitely a recipe I'll make again.


  1. That looks AMAZING!!!!!!

    can't wait to make it myself!

  2. not quite but real close to the "borst" soup we had in Ukraine, More carrot based than tomato. Good.
