A cozy vegan tomato soup that's perfect topped with toasty grilled cheese croutons!This dairy-free soup gets it's creaminess by blending chickpeas into the base of the soup instead of using cream or nuts.
大学第一学期，I gained about 25 pounds.对于一个像我这样的矮个子，从来没有食物或体重方面的问题，it was dramatic.这是自助餐厅糟糕的食物造成的，too many fat free animal crackers,and definitely too many midnight dorm room pizzas.那年除夕，I resolved to get the weight off… and fast.我最好的朋友告诉我她正在做这个叫做大师净化的事情，自然地，that sounded like a good idea.I'm sure you've heard of it – it involves a concoction made of 徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏lemon juice,maple syrup,还有黑胡椒。只是我不喜欢黑胡椒和枫糖浆，so instead I decided that I would just drink 徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏lemon juice mixed with water for as many days as were directed in the"cleanse."During those first few weeks back at school,while everyone would have their cafeteria trays full of pancakes and whatever other breakfast food,I'd fill my tray with four glasses of water,sit down,开始挤压我的柠檬。徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏Everyone thought I was crazy,but the idea of just eating reasonably and sensibly didn't make sense to my college self,who wanted to be thin NOW.Well,I was crazy and drinking only 徳赢vwin捕鱼游戏lemon juice isn't actually sustainable (no love with those lemons),但是这种想法在我体重上下起伏的时候持续了好几年。直到有一天，我才明白，如果我吃得很好，避免疯狂的起伏，一切都会好起来的，而且已经过去了。
So this year,like every year,I have no New Year's diet resolutions other than continuing to eat delicious,wholesome food with some room for fun foods.就像这纯素西红柿汤（有益健康）与烤奶酪面包片（乐趣！）全是纯素食的，但我保证你甚至不知道，因为即使没有真正的奶油，它也是奶油味的。We're partnering withALDIon this post because they carry delicious organic produce and some A+ pantry staples as well.
Because it's winter,I intended to make this soup using only canned tomatoes,但是当我们到达ALDI，their organic fresh tomatoes just looked so darn good.So I roasted onions,tomatoes,and garlic which I later blended with canned tomatoes,鹰嘴豆橄榄油，balsamic vinegar and fresh thyme.
This vegan tomato soup is SO good.It's tangy from the tomatoes,鹰嘴豆奶油，如此令人满意。冬天的每一天我都要喝一碗这个。Jack,who is not the biggest fan of tomato soup,得不到足够的
It's delicious on its own,but the fun,美味的烤奶酪面包片真的比上面的要好。I used ALDI's Knock Your Sprouts Off Sprouted 7 Grain Bread and their Earth Grown Vegan Shredded Cheese.我必须告诉你，我对这种纯素奶酪非常兴奋，因为：1-它味道非常好，2 – it actually melts great,and 3 – it's so affordable!!
- 4 medium fresh tomatoes
- 1 small yellow onion,sliced into quarters
- 1 (14-ounce) can Happy Harvest Diced Tomatoes with Basil,Garlic,牛至
- ⅓ cup Dakota's Pride Garbanzo Beans,漂洗
- ½ teaspoon Specially Selected 100% Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 tablespoon SimplyNature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil,more for drizzling
- ¼ to ½ teaspoon Stonemill Crushed Red Pepper flakes
- Heaping ½ teaspoon Stonemill Sea Salt
- freshly ground Stonemill Black Pepper
- 8 slices SimplyNature Knock Your Sprouts Off Sprouted 7 Grain Bread
- heaping ½ cup Earth Grown Vegan Mozzarella Style Shreds
- 把蒜瓣用箔纸包好，连同整个西红柿和洋葱块一起放在烤盘上。Drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper and roast for 20 to 25 minutes,or until the tomatoes and onions are well browned.Peel the garlic and transfer the roasted vegetables to a blender.
- Reduce the oven heat to 400° F and line the baking sheet with a fresh sheet of parchment paper.
- Make the croutons: Sprinkle 4 slices of the sprouted bread with the vegan shredded cheese (don't pile too high in the middle or the croutons will be too melty to slice).Top with the remaining bread slices to make sandwiches and drizzle the outsides of the bread with olive oil.烤至奶酪融化，面包呈金棕色，about 8 minutes.Let cool completely before slicing into croutons so that the cheese doesn't ooze out when you cut it.
- 给搅拌机，add the canned tomatoes,garbanzo beans,balsamic vinegar,maple syrup,thyme leaves,1 tablespoon olive oil,red pepper flakes,½ teaspoon sea salt,and freshly ground pepper and blend until creamy (a Vitamix is ideal here.如果使用普通搅拌机，just blend longer!）Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.At this stage,汤应该还是热的。如果不是，把它倒进锅里再加热。
- Serve the soup with the croutons (some in the soup,some on the side) and additional fresh thyme,red pepper flakes,and chickpeas,if desired.
