Garden Fresh Tomato Soup in Ten Minutes #nutribullet

Tonight Iscoured the internet for a quick, fresh tomato soup recipe to make in myNutribullet blender. For whatever reason, most of the recipes I found were part of some cleanse/regime/diet nosense and filled with unnecessary ingredients – so I ended up creating our own simplified tomato soup for the Nutribullet. And it was pretty darn tasty! This would work in any blender that features a soup setting (Nutribullet, Vitamix, etc).

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 tomatoes (I used a mixture of randoms from our garden, chopped roughly in 1/2 to 1 inch chunks)
  • 1 small onion, sauteed
  • 2 carrots, roughly chopped into 1/2 to 1 inch chunks
  • fresh herbs – I used thyme, basil, and oreganorec
  • salt and pepper
  • milk (poured in after to your personal preference)

Directions (makes two servings):

Chop your tomatoes, carrots, and onions. Lightly saute your onions in a frying pan with a drop of oil or butter until brown. Wash herbs and remove from stems. Assemble all ingredients into your blender (add salt and pepper now, or after blending, to taste).

Blend on soup setting (on the Nutribullet that’s 7 minutes, I believe the Vitamix has a similar soup setting).

Pour into serving bowls and allow to cool for a couple minutes. Stir in milk to desired taste.

 

It’s that simple! The soup was very fresh and satisfying. I liked the addition of carrots because they diminished the acidity of the tomatoes, and the fresh herbs really popped. All -in-all, this was a simple, healthy alternative to canned soup that I will continue to make as the harvest rolls in.
