This vegan tomato soup is nutrient dense and may be just what you need to take on the upcoming cold season.
I was only a mere child when I first heard about the incredible anti oxidizing properties of tomatoes, that's what got me into eating them just like any other fruits. I wasn't so used to the taste back then but I've grown to like (crave) the taste of this soft, juicy, red fruit. Forward a few years later and I'm still chowing down on them but honestly, other than just sinking my teeth into this fruity goodness, I had no idea what else I could do with tomatoes. So as you could imagine, it was an absolute delight when my friend (Ted) sent me this recipe.
It's so shockingly good (and easy to make) that I just couldn't wait to share it with you all. I also was hyped up about tomatoes all over again so I began pondering on other recipes that I could add them into. In the end I discovered quite a few good ideas (I will be sure to share with you later), some not so good ones and a wide range of health benefits of tomatoes.
It's remarkable how rich tomatoes are in nutrients. Other than their high anti-oxidant content tomatoes are loaded with: Vitamins A, C, B1,B3, B6 ,E and vitamin K, Protein, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron, zinc, phosphorous and the list goes on, really it does.
I know what you're thinking, that's a lot of nutrients. And it comes with a a wide range of health benefits as well. You name it, the benefits of tomatoes range from bone health to cardiovascular and skin health. That said, I know everyone can benefit from this vegan tomato soup, not just those who hope to fight off the cold… Speaking of soup, here's the recipe:
NOTE: The first thing that has to be done to get this soup going is to soak the broad beans over night in some fresh/clean water. Once that is done we can get started.
Dinner for 6 is now ready, serve hot….
Yum, delicious. Soups helps us to stay fuller for longer and helps to reduce the a lot of the work our bodies have to do to break down the nutrients in out foods. I highly recommend this vegan tomato soup recipe for everyone.
