You may think that opening a can of soup is the easiest most convenient way of eating soup, and well, you may be right when it comes to convenience. But with just an extra 15-20 minutes or so, you could have a homemade vegan tomato soup on the table.
Within the first bite, you’ll be so glad you made the decision to go homemade. Especially once you get a look at the ingredients your average can of tomato soup:
Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), High Fructose Corn Syrup, Wheat Flour, Water, Contains Less Than 2% Of: Salt, Potassium Chloride, Citric Acid, Natural Flavoring, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Monopotassium Phosphate, Celery Extract, Garlic Oil.
Dude, I do not need high fructose corn syrup in my soup!
And honestly, this is one of those super easy recipes where you really just pour it all in and let the flavors do all the work.
Let’s talk about those flavors!
Vegan Tomato Soup Ingredient Spotlight
Onion & Garlic – Oh you know any good savory recipe starts with the flavor of onions and garlic.
Crushed Tomatoes – Of course, the tomatoes are the star of the show here. I would go with a higher quality tomato brand. I really like Muir Glen brand, but whatever your favorite is will be great. You can also use diced tomatoes or even whole peeled tomatoes if that’s what you have on hand. It will all be pureed in the end anyway.
Coconut Milk – This is where you’re going to get that dreamy creamy texture for your vegan creamy tomato soup. I promise this won’t give a coconut flavor to your soup! You could use a different non-dairy milk like almond or soy, but you just won’t get the creaminess the coconut milk gives you.
Nutritional Yeast – nooch is such a magical ingredient that ends up in so many of my savory recipes. A hint of a cheesy flavor. A nuttiness. And of course, you’ll get added B12 from the nutritional yeast as well!
Of course, some amazing seasonings to bring it all together, and your belly is going to be so happy!
Now for the good stuff.

A few commonly asked questions about this homemade vegan tomato soup recipe
What if I don’t have a blender? You can totally try and use a stick/immersion blender, but I will say that with tomato soup, that may not be the best decision. I made a massive mess with the tomatoes splattering all over the place – and girl! Hot tomatoes burn! The great thing with this recipe is that you don’t really need to have a high-powdered blender like a Vitamix or a Blendtec. Just a regular old blender will do. We aren’t blending nuts or anything like that. Just a simple soup.
