Vegan Creamy Pumpkin Tomato Soup

Who knew that pumpkin and tomato would be a match made in heaven?

This savory soup was inspired by my Vegan Tuscan Pumpkin Pasta Sauce. That sauce is so delicious, I want to eat it with a spoon. Hence, why I turned it into a soup.

If you’ve ever tried Nordstrom’s famous tomato soup, the flavor of this soup is reminiscent of that, while being entirely dairy-free. Of course if you enjoy dairy, this is the perfect soup for dipping a grilled cheese into, or practically any sandwich, for that matter.

What I love about this soup is that it’s a breeze to throw together and has a velvety texture without the need for heavy cream. Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, which is great for eye health, the antioxidant beta carotene, which may help to prevent cancer, and potassium, to help with muscle recovery after a workout. Paired with tomatoes, which are a great source of vitamin C, iron, and lycopene, which might reduce your risk for heart disease, this soup is a healthy addition to any meal.

As an added bonus, you can always use any leftovers as a dip or pasta sauce.

Adjust any seasoning to taste and serve warm. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

I was JUST pondering what else I could use that Tuscan Pumpkin Pasta Sauce on, because it is amazing! Thanks for being a step ahead of me! Can’t wait to try this soup.

Totally planning on making this soup this weekend! One question: What are strained tomatoes? I Googled it and the results that came back only confused me more. I mainly shop at Trader Joe’s, and have never noticed a product with that descriptor. If I go to Whole Foods or Ralphs will I find it, or is there another name that I should be on the lookout for? Thank you for giving me another excuse to use pumpkin!

    I buy my strained tomatoes at Whole Foods; they usually carry two brands of them– Pomi or Bionaturae. Here’s what the Pomi package looks like: http://amzn.to/2fSTqI3 (I think that’s the most commonly found brand.)

      Is there a good substitute for strained tomatoes if one does not have them?

        Megan Gilmore

        You could probably use an equivalent amount of diced tomatoes (just make sure there are no added ingredients). If you want a smooth sauce, you’ll have to blend it before or after cooking.

          the diced tomatoes- can they be raw or should I sautee them first? Thanks!

Anne

Ridiculously delicious

    I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

So very tasty! Thank you for sharing! I also added cauliflower (trying to incorporate more vegetables into my diet) and it turned out great! I just had to add a little more coconut milk. Again, thank you for sharing this delicious recipe!

I’ve never seen a recipe mix tomato and pumpkins before 🙂

Iuliana

Really delicious soup, perfect for this time of the year!! Love it!

Joey

Hi. Looks really good. But they don’t sell pumpkin puree where I live (Australia). Could I boil a cup of pumpkin instead?

Fatima

I had no idea that pumpkin, tomato, and coconut would taste so great together. Yum. I was inspired by the coconut milk to sub a hefty pinch of Chinese Five Spice powder for the cinnamon.

Angie
