Raw Vegan Tomato Basil Soup

Summer boasts the best, most juicy and plump tomatoes. These tomatoes are so good, they can be eaten just sliced with a dash of salt or even just alone. I was looking for a new way to indulge in my favorite summer food though, and I came up with a raw vegan tomato basil soup. This soup can be made in minutes and enjoyed right after. In addition to being so easy to make, it’s also refreshing and has a plethora of vitamins and minerals!

Raw Vegan Tomato Basil Soup Recipe

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Two tomatoes
  • A small handful of basil, about 10-12 leaves

Wash your tomatoes and your basil, dry and set aside. Now take out your juicer to make this soup.

Ingredients for Tomato Basil Soup

Cut your tomatoes into quarters and alternate tomatoes with the basil so that the basil gets pushed through your juicer and doesn’t clump and get stuck in there. Continue until all the tomatoes and basil has been put through the juicer.

You will be left with a thick soup that smells heavenly, of fresh tomatoes and fresh cut basil. This soup can be enjoyed as part of any meal. I personally like it for lunch with a fresh salad or have it to accompany any sandwich, like with my micro kale, cucumber, tomato, avocado sandwich.

Pour this into a bowl and enjoy immediately. You can also put this in the fridge and serve it chilled later. If you don’t want this soup for today, you can make it and freeze it too. I have found the best way to freeze it is to put one cup servings into a ziploc bag, squeezing out all the air. This way it defrosts faster and you are all set with your one serving.
