Classic tomato soup using fresh tomatoes.
Ingredients
  • 4 cups diced fresh tomatoes
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups vegetable broth (or water, plus 1 veggie bouillon cube)
  • 2 tablespoons vegan margarine
  • 3 tablespoons gluten-free flour (I used sorghum flour)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a large pot combine tomatoes, onion, garlic and vegetable broth. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and let simmer for about 20 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and transfer (in batches, if necessary) to a blender. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Heat the same pot over medium heat. Melt vegan margarine. Whisk in gluten-free flour. Continue to cook mixture, whisking often, over medium heat until it begins to turn light brown.
  4. Add in a bit of the pureed tomato mixture, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Add in the remaining pureed tomato a bit at a time, continuing to whisk, heating through.
  5. Add in sugar, sea salt, pepper and cinnamon. Stir and taste for seasoning, adjusting salt and sugar if necessary.
  6. Serve hot.
