Here's a recipe for a tasty vegan tomato bisque, made from
fresh tomatoes and only a few other ingredients. This also has proved to be a powerful cold-fighting soup. Enjoy!
Step 1: Ingredients
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 medium-large white onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
7-8 medium-large ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1-2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp cumin seed
1-2 tsp fennel seed
1 tsp ground coriander
3 cups distilled water or vegetable stock
Step 2: Put It All In
1. Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot. Then, add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, on medium-high heat, until the garlic and onion are browned.
2. Add the tomatoes, sea salt, turmeric, cumin, fennel, and coriander and continue to cook for about 5 minutes.
3. Add the water or vegetable stock. Cover and bring to a boil. Then, simmer for about 30 minutes.
Step 3: Blend It
Let the soup cool.
Then, use an immersion blender or transfer the soup in small batches into a standing blender, blending until the desired consistency is achieved.
