This vegan soup is simple to make, and it’s perfect for any season. It retains all its flavours whether you eat it hot or cold. Once you get the hang of mixing it, you’ll have this master in no time, and eaten in less than 2 minutes flat.

There’s nothing quite like a sweet rich bowl of tomato soup topped with cooked bacon. Other foods you can use are sour cream, Roast Pumpkin Seeds, chopped mixed nuts, croutons or try making this Keto Bread Loaf to go with it…the world is your oyster here.


Aside from being vegan, it’s also gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free. Our soup is refined sugar-free, but does contain naturalsugar becasue of the goji berries. This soup ss delicious eaten as a light lunch or an accompaniment for dinner.

Always use good quality spices and oils, never vegetable oils. This recipe recommends olive oil, but you can use coconut oil, ghee or even rice oil. Wherever possible use organic vegetables because they make your recipes taste much nicer and will be full of nutrients. Non-organic are full of pesticides and herbicides, they have less flavour and can impact our health longterm.

This soup can be made in a saucepan, a soup maker or if you own a Thermomix it can be cooked in that too. With a soup maker or a Thermomix it’s as easy as throwing all the ingredients in and cooking it for 25 minutes on setting 4, then blend on high…Voila! With a saucepan a handblender will be needed
