Nothing emphasizes Autumn like hot tomato or pumpkin carrot soup (I will save that recipe for another day). This isn’t your grocers canned tomato soup! This is fresh, zingy and oh so good! It is textured, savory and satisfying!
With Farm Markets in full swing it is easy to get your hands on ripe vine tomatoes, fresh garlic and herbs. The best thing is it’s free of dairy and you can virtually serve it long simmered or barely cooked and garden fresh.
As you look down the ingredients list you may see something your not familiar with (though I added substitute ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard). Coconut Aminos… If you haven’t heard of this tasty liquid you can add to just about anything you would use soy sauce or tamari for I would love to enlighten you lol. To me it is a way healthier version of those very condiments. So, what are coconut aminos? They are a delicious sauce collected from the sap of coconut blossoms and blended with sea salt and naturally aged. Because of the way it is processed it remains raw and enzymatically active!! They have an umami feel with a rich dark salty, slightly sweet flavor. It is soy free, wheat-free and gluten-free. They carry many benefits being packed with minerals, low GI and contain both Vitamin C and B. They contain 17 different types of amino acids (both the building blocks of protein, muscle repair and aiding in brain and nervous system function. 14 times the amount of aminos then what is found in soy sauce!
I hope you enjoy this zesty soup as you hunker down for the chilly days ahead.
SAVORY TOMATO SOUP
- 18 ripe Tomatoes (I used Romas)
- 1 TBS minced Garlic
- 2 TBS of Olive Oil
- 1 1/2 white onion
- 3-4 TBS Tarragon
- 2 TBS Rosemary
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 1 tsp Paprika
- Dash of Cayenne *optional
- 2 TBS Balsamic Vinegar
- 3 TBS Coconut Aminos (or Tamari, or Soy Sauce)
- Drizzle with Greek Yogurt *optional
1. Pulse all ingredients together in a high speed blender. I had to cut tomatoes into large chunks along with the onions.
2. Pour into a pot and simmer!
*If you prefer fresh out of the garden taste then don’t keep cooking once it begins to heat up. If you would like it to meld together then keep it going for at least 20 min.
