Stress-Busting Tomato Soup
There's something about a bowl of tomato soup in the fall...
This recipe is one of my go to's and is perfect if you feel like having a home cooked meal without much effort, because this is one of the easiest recipes ever.
This soup fits my highly delicious and nutritious standards and takes roughly 10 minutes of actual work on your end.
This is adrenal food!
This soup contains plenty of adrenal loving vitamin C from the tomatoes and the red peppers.
Tomatoes are very rich in a carotenoid called lycopene. Lycopene gives tomatoes their red colour and is a wonderfully protective nutrient for your cells, it helps quench damaging free radicals (free radicals= stress). The liquid base of this soup is creamy, delicious coconut milk. The healthy fat from the coconut milk, along with the fiber, fat and protein from the hemp seeds in this recipe deliver a soup that is very satisfying and nutritionally balanced. These factors will help keep your blood sugar level balanced and this supports healthy hormones.
Super Easy Roasted Tomato Soup
- 8-10 tomatoes
- 1-2 red peppers
- 1 onion
- 5-10 cloves of garlic
- Indian masala spice blend
- 1 can of coconut milk
- a blender/hand blender
- 1-2 tbsp of cooking oil (coconut or avocado are my fave)
- 2-3 tbsp of hemp seeds
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Very roughly chop your tomatoes, red peppers and onions and throw on a roasting dish
- Add garlic (I leave on the skins while cooking, it's easy to slide the cloves out once they are roasted)
- Drizzle with coconut oil and season with sea salt and pepper
- Roast everything for about 30-40 mins
- Once done, remove from the oven and let cool a bit
- Add roasted items to your blender
- Pour in 1 can of coconut milk
- Add 1-2 tbsp of seasoning depending on how spicy you like it.
- Blend till smooth.
- Simmer everything for a few minutes in a soup pot to let the flavours really combine. I usually do this part right before serving.
- Sprinkle hemp seeds on top just before serving and voila!
There you go, it's basically- chop, roast and blend. The flavour you get from the roasted tomato, peppers, onions and garlic is really awesome on it's own and the masala spice brings a nice warming punch of flavour to an old classic.
Hope you enjoy! xo
