Easy Vegan Tomato Soup

I really wanted to make soup but I did not have any carrots. Do you know how many soup recipes used carrots??? LOTS!!

I looked at some soup recipes I had saved in my google soup mailbox & found a recipe from Martha Stewart for Tomato Soup so I adapted that recipe & here is the recipe for Easy Vegan Tomato Soup that I made! So good & simple

This soup is vegan which is so great for everyone! Murray added some crushed up soda crackers… & next time he might just break up some sourdough bread to put in this!! i liked it just as it is!

You can garnish this soup with some croutons, a sprinkle of parmesan cheese & some cream drizzled in if you don’t need it to be vegan!! The perfect easy soup!


2 tbsp olive oil

1 med onion, diced

1/4 cup flour

3 tbsp tomato paste

1/2 tsp dried thyme

salt & pepper

2 796 ml cans of diced tomatoes

4 cups water

4 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp dried basil


  1. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil
  2. Add the diced onion & saute over medium heat, stirring often until the onion is translucent but not starting to brown
  3. Add the flour & tomato paste, cook for 1 minute mixing well. You want to make sure you cook the flour….
  4. Add the dried thyme, salt & pepper, stir well
  5. Add the canned tomatoes & the water, give it a stir
  6. Bring to a boil & then lower heat to simmer for about 45 minutes. Stir often.. (I burnt the bottom & it took forever to pick out the burnt bits of soup! So, remember to keep the heat medium & stir stir stir!)
  7. Turn the heat off
  8. Puree the soup with a hand blender
  9. Add the sugar & basil, Stir well
  10. Put the heat back on & slowly simmer for about 10 minutes
  11. Taste & adjust seasoning… you might need more salt…I did & more sugar if you like it to be a bit sweeter The sugar cuts the acidity of the tomatoes!


Not the best picture but I forgot to take one!! So quickly took this while the soup was in the fridge

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
