When I first started my blog many, many years ago, I did it so that I could easily share my recipes with family and friends. And this Dairy Free Creamy Tomato Soup recipes was one of the catalysts for this whole blogging life of mine. This soup was and still is my family’s favorite soup.

Usually I serve this soup with dairy free grilled cheese sammies or quesadillas, but this time I just made a whole big bunch of sourdough croutons and loaded up the top. OMG this is like having a dunked sammie right in the bowl.

I remember when I first came up with this recipe. When my kids were younger I used to sometimes get the urge to cook them some of the foods that I loved as a child. And I loved Campbell’s Tomato Soup. Let’s face it though, there was no way I was going to open up a can of soup or a can of Spaghetti-Os for them. But what I could do was to easily create the best Dairy Free Creamy Tomato Soup ever.

This soup is a great last minute weeknight dinner. It is so easy to make and it comes together really quickly. You’ve really got to try it.

Onions are great for your immune system; they are a natural antihistamine. Recently, I recommended that a patient with bronchitis put sliced raw onions in her socks when she went to sleep… she woke up so much better. (I know I’ve told you this before, but it really is awesome!) Onion is a superhero in the food world!

Garlic is amazing in its antiviral and antibacterial capabilities. Garlic is actually a Chinese herb (Da Suan). It’s used to kill toxins and parasites and also to reduce swelling in the body. It’s what I call a great “A” herb: anesthetic, antibacterial, anti fungal, antioxidant, antiviral, etc….

This Dairy Free Creamy Tomato Soup is like a hug in a bowl; it's the best comfort food ever. Serve it with a sandwich for dipping and you will be so happy.
Ingredients
  • 1 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbs ghee (or can substitute butter)
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbs flour of choice (I like to use either tapioca flour or rice flour)
  • 2 tsp coconut sugar (or can substitute white or brown sugar)
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 28-oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • sourdough croutons, for topping, optional (To make these croutons, cut bread into cubes, toss with some olive oil, salt and pepper, and then sauté until crispy.)
Instructions
  1. Heat oil and ghee in a large soup pot.
  2. Add onions and garlic and a little salt and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Add flour, and stir for 1 minute.
  4. Add coconut sugar, broth, tomatoes and thyme. Generously season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Discard the thyme sprigs.
  6. Ladle soup into a blender until the blender is half full. Cover with a dish cloth and hold the cloth tightly around the top while you blend. The cloth will allow steam to escape; just make sure you hold it tightly so you don't get burned.
  7. Blend until totally smooth. Repeat with rest of soup.
  8. Return all blended soup to the pot and season with salt and pepper as needed.
  9. Ladle into bowls and top with croutons.
  10. Enjoy!
