Creamy, satisfying, hearty and healthy Tomato Bail Soup? Count me way in! This soup is easy to make and comes together with just 10 ingredients in 30 minutes. It’s also a family friendly as well as budget friendly dish. 

Tomato Soup happens to be my all time favorite. Pair it with a grilled cheese sandwich and I’m in heaven. I mean if that is not the most nostalgic meal out there I don’t know what is!

This soup requires just one pot and a blender. Let’s get cooking!

How To Make Vegan Tomato Basil Soup:

  • Crushed Tomatoes – I generally look for a low sodium or no salt added option. You can use canned whole tomatoes as well and crush them with your hands.
  • Vegetable Broth –  Any brand will work I look for low sodium. 
  • Carrots – This adds flavor and thick creaminess to the soup.
  • Yukon Gold Potatoes – This potato works best as it is ultra creamy you can use any potato but it won’t yield a soup with as creamy results.
  • Onion – I like yellow onion best however white will work as well. 
  • Garlic – Fresh is best, mince it up fine or use a garlic press. 
  • Olive Oil – Any neutral oil will work if you do not have Olive Oil on hand.
  • Salt & Pepper – I use Sea Salt and fresh cracked Black Pepper. 
  • Basil – This is a key ingredient make sure to use fresh basil. 
  • Red Pepper Flakes – Although optional this adds a nice subtle heat to your soup. If you want to keep it classic forgo this option.
