Inspired by Cat Cora's Tomato Soup Recipe.

There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of soup on a chilly day. πŸ˜‹ Soup is such a simple yet magical meal. It is one of the easiest ways to add more vegetables to your diet, and is very slimming. πŸ™ŒπŸ» Soup is filling because it stretches the stomach, and contains so much water that it fills you up with less calories. πŸ€—πŸœπŸ’―
Lately I've been craving a good old fashioned tomato πŸ… soup, so today I gave one of my favorite Cat Cora recipes a plant-based makeover 🌿
The result? A perfect creamy tomato πŸ… soup with some jalapeΓ±o 🌢 heat πŸ”₯ This soup is sure to warm up your bones as the temperatures start to fall. For extra heartiness and nutrition, add some fresh spinach πŸƒ and basmati rice to your bowl 🍚 then ladle the soup over top. 
I served it with some of my herbed cashew cream cheese πŸ§€ and garlic parmesan spirulina flax crackers.  Recipe deets below πŸ‘‡


- 1 Tablespoon Water
-  1 Large Yellow Onion (Chopped)
- 4 Garlic Cloves (Chopped)
- 1 Small Jalapeno Pepper (Stemmed, seeded, and minced)
- Β½ Teaspoon Sea Salt
- Β½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- 1 28-ounce can Whole, Peeled Tomatoes
-  1 Quart Vegetable Broth
- Β½ Cup Tofutti Sour Cream (Plus 2 tablespoons)
- 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice

- Heat the water in a large saucepan over medium heat; add the onion, garlic, jalapeΓ±o, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring, until translucent.
- Add the tomatoes and broth and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the tomatoes are soft, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Whisk in the tofutti sour cream and the lime juice and turn off the heat.
- Blend the soup until smooth with an immersion blender or a regular blender (if using a regular blender, wait for the soup to cool a bit, then hold the blender lid on with a kitchen towel while you puree).
- Return the soup to the heat on low; don't let the soup boil or it will curdle.
- Serve with an extra dollop of tofutti sour cream and sliced fresh jalapeΓ±o pepper.


- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
- 2 teaspoons dried parsley
- ΒΎ teaspoon dried dill
- Β½ teaspoon onion powder
- Β½ teaspoon pepper
- Β½ teaspoon salt

- Soak the cashews in water overnight, then drain.
- Add softened cashews to a food processor with 1/4 cup water and process until you start to achieve a creamy consistency.  Stop the food processor a few times to scrape down the sides.  When the consistency starts to get creamy, add 2 more Tablespoons of water, and the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth.  The longer you process the cheese, the creamier it will be.
- Store in an airtight container.  Will keep up to 5 days in the refrigerator.


- 2 medium yellow onions
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
- 1/4 cup vegan parmesan cheese
- 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp green spirulina


  1. Remove skins from the onions and add to a food processor.  Process until you achieve a wet mushy consistency.
  2. Add onion to a bowl and stir in remaining ingredients. Transfer batter to dehydrator teflex tray and spread with a spatula until 1/4" thick. 
  3. Dehydrate at 115F for 10 hours, then flip the cracker onto a regular mesh sheet and dry for 3 hours until crispy and edges start to curl up.
  4. Remove from dehydrator, break into smaller crackers and enjoy with your cashew cream cheese.
