This delicious Vegan Roasted Tomato Soup is made creamy with chickpeas and coconut milk. A filling yet healthy meal, this soup is ready in less than 30 minutes.
When the weather gets chilly, nothing warms me like a big bowl of soup. I dream of soup when I’m out in the cold.
I can picture myself on my couch all wrapped up in blankets sipping on some hot soup with my pups at my side. Nothing beats that kind of day.
An Easy and Quick Cozy Meal
My Vegan Roasted Tomato Soup recipe came together out of necessity. It was cold and I needed some soup to warm me ASAP. Looking around, I found I had a can of chickpeas, roasted tomatoes, and coconut milk on hand…but that was about it.
I figured the chickpeas would make the soup nice and thick. I’m so glad for my bare pantry that day because this has become one of my favorite soups!
I usually make a pot of this soup at least 1-2 times a month because it’s so easy and tasty. I can make it on a Sunday for dinner and then have leftovers to take to work for a few days. I serve it with some nice toasted bread and I’m all set!
Reasons why my this is one of my favorite recipes:
- ready in about 20 minutes
- healthy (good carbs, protein, fat)
- great to take leftovers to work (like I share in my Vegan Meal Planning)
- creamy without the cream
- totally delicious!
