I love this tomato soup! Part of the reason is that it’s just so easy to make. I make it quite often for lunch on a Monday, so that I can have it throughout the week. I usually pair it with a vegan grilled cheese or roasted vegetables, depending on my mood. This soup is comfort food indeed.

Can the words comfort and slimming describe the same recipe? Yes they can!

I get comfort from having a steaming bowl of creamy tomato soup in front of me, especially on a cold day. I like to hold the bowl for a moment before diving in, just to feel the warmth on my hands.

So where does the slimming part come in?

This soup is great if you are trying to lose a few pounds or if you are just trying to eat a bit healthier after an overindulgence (I’ve been there). Each serving has only 80 calories and 2 grams of fat. Not bad, huh?

Plus, there is about 4 grams of protein per serving due to the addition of silken tofu. If you are like me, you will have at least 2 servings and sprinkle Nutritional Yeast on top. If you haven’t tried nutritional yeast, then you simply must. It has a wonderful cheesy flavor and is full of protein and nutrients.

What do you need?

This recipe requires only 6 ingredients, minus the salt. You will need:

28 oz can of whole peeled tomatoes
1 roasted red bell pepper or about 1/2 cup (jarred works great)
8 oz silken tofu
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
salt to taste

How to make Slimming Vegan Tomato Soup

This recipe couldn’t get any easier. You simply put everything in a high speed blender and blend. I love my Vitamix because it has a soup option that blends and heats the soup for you.

It’s so satisfying to open the lid and have a steamy hot soup right away. But no worries if you don’t have that option. You can simply blend, and then heat on the stove in a saucepan.

I eat this soup warm, but I bet it would be great cold too. Garnish with fresh basil or thyme and a sprinkle of Nutritional Yeast.

I hope you try this super easy recipe for Slimming Vegan Tomato Soup! And don’t forget to let me know what you think.

Happy Eating!
