Dark clouds have been teasing The Circle City where I live, obviously displaying nimbus clouds, but not surrendering any water. Days like this, that refuse to let the sun shine, make me want to cook some savory soup for my family. Nothing brings me back to my Southern roots quicker than tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches! This was always a quick comfort meal growing up.
On this Fresh Friday I want to share a delicious tomato soup that the family loved. I can’t take credit for this recipe, because I found it on a wonderful blog, The First Mess. Yes, this beautiful vegan is brilliant! I did not modify anything. It was fun to cook, and the soup speaks for itself. Click on this link and enjoy. I know you will love it.
I absolutely love what I am finding in so many vegan recipes; the use of soaked raw cashews. By soaking and using these nuts, it gives pureed soup the taste of cream. The best part is; there is NO dairy! Love this vegan community!!!!
I really enjoyed cooking this soup for my family. The smell of fresh organic tomatoes stuffed with garlic roasting in my oven on an overcast day made this a perfect choice for my Fresh Friday. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Scroll through The First Mess Recipe Index, you might not ever come back to my blog…. I don’t blame you. Not only are her vegan recipes amazing, most of them are gluten-free! Her work is truly inspiring! I will definitely be making more of her stuff!!!!!!!
