It’s officially soup season! They are predicting winter weather early next week for Virginia! Can you believe it? So it’s time to dust off those favorite soup recipes!
As I continue my vegan journey, I’m searching for ways to “veganize” my favorite dishes. I tried this on a whim. The secret ingredient that makes this a “bisque” is the vegan protein broth from Walmart brand Sam’s Choice.
Y’all. This broth is a game changer. I’ve tried to make soups “creamy” using almond or cashew milk, but the flavor/texture was off. When I discovered this, I started using it as my substitute for milk or cream. It provides a rich, savory base for your soups and sauces!
Soup in progress! I sautéed onions and garlic until translucent , and then added the remaining ingredients, with the exception of the broth, and simmered for about 20 minutes. I then used an immersion blender to combine the ingredients until smooth. Finally, I stirred in the broth.
If you try this recipe, let me know!
Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Bisque
- 1 T olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped in large pieces.
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped (I actually used the frozen cubes from Dorot for this recipe)
- 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
- 2 jarred roasted red peppers (I use Trader Joe’s brand)
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil (can use dried or frozen Dorot cube)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup Sam’s Choice Vegan Protein Broth
In a saucepan, sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil until translucent over medium heat.
Add the tomatoes, peppers, and spices. Bring to bubbling over medium heat, and then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Remove cover. Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth, taking care not to splash the hot soup!
Add the broth and stir. Adjust seasonings as desired.
Serve with crackers or bread. Enjoy!
