How To Make a Creamy, Dairy-Free Tomato Soup?

The great thing about this recipe is that at its base it is a delicious tomato soup you can whip up in 30 minutes. Even if you forgot to pick up the torellini at the store.

The flavor from sauteed onions (and garlic if you like to add), basic diced tomatoes and easy Italian seasonings yield a delicious soup. Which is elevated to "creamy dreamy" status when you stir in some JOI nut base. No heavy cream or butter required when you've got JOI in your pantry!

No coconut milk either.  Nothing against coconut milk...but it does add a distinctive flavor when used.  A non-Italian flavor LOL!  JOI is a neutral-tasting creamy addition instead.

What Makes this Tomato Soup Special? Tortellini, of Course.

What makes this soup really flavorful is the mushroom-stuffed tortellini noodles (check the label to make sure they're dairy-free or vegan, if you follow those diets). The noodles help to flavor the soup as well as make it really filling and a full meal. The mushroom adds a meaty texture and deep flavor to the soup and it pairs so nicely with the acidic tomato broth.

If you can't find vegan mushroom tortellini at your local grocer, try finding tortellini stuffed with cashew cream or italian sausage flavorings instead.

Sure, adding tortellini makes this soup more hearty. But if you skip the tortellini, you can serve with some crusty bread or classic grilled cheese croutons. Or a salad!

What Ingredients are in the Recipe?

A couple of the ingredients should already be on your pantry shelf (crushed tomatoes, vegetable broth, JOI, olive oil).  And others in your spice drawer:  bay leaf, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

No doubt you've got an onion hanging around.  

That's it!  Fresh basil is a bonus and adds tons of fresh flavor.  Use dried basil, though, if you don't have fresh.  

Is this An Easy Recipe to Make in 30 Minutes?

Yes, this is a quick and easy recipe.  From the time you heat the olive oil and add the onion (so that it turns golden and develops a delicious flavor base for the soup!) to the time you're adding the tortellini to cook off, should be way under 30 minutes!

What are Some Good Side Dishes for Tomato Soup?

Look no further than that classic lunchtime combination:  "soup and salad" for side dish inspiration.  

Salads are a great side dish for creamy tortellini soup.  Here are a few that have JOI in the dressing:

  • Love your recipes.
    Trying to make the creamy tomato and it doesn’t include and joi products in the ingredient list or directions. The picture shows cashew base so we are going to guess – could you let us know how much to use for future use?
    Thank you,

The Skinny Truth About Fats

With all the “low-fat” and “fat-free” products on the market, it’s not a surprise that most people have a negative association with fats—whether it’s about gaining weight, raising cholesterol levels, increasing risk for heart disease... talk about a bad reputation. All of which is true, but only to a certain extent. The fat we eat, known as dietary fat, is one of three essential macronutrients in a diet. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are the three musketeers of nutrition and must stay together through all your meals, not one can be excluded from the dinner party... (we're looking at you, keto diet).
