Vegan Tomato soup/How to make tomato soup


Tomato soup

Come winter and tomatoes are in abundance, making these yummy soup helps me make my kids eat them in some form.After trying this recipe i have stopped buying packed one from the store as it already has preservatives, my effort is to avoid preservatives as much as i can,as anyways knowing or unknowingly we are having so many unhealthy stuff.

At times i do sit and think how much we as mother’s make effort and plan the diet for our loved one’s, mood or no mood work has to be done,if we feel weak the whole family gets disturbed, just sipping this soup and remembering how i use to fight with my mother when she would say one day you will get married, this how you will behave…my answer would be i won’t marry only😂😂how stupid i was…here i am married with my twin kids managing the house and in laws…ok now coming to the recipe i have used few ingredients for this soup do give it a try..

Let’s get the recipe

#purvanchalstadka #tomatosoup#foodbloggers #purvanchalstadka #mystories#women


  • 5 ripped tomatoes
  • 1 beetroot
  • 2 onions
  • 1 bay leaf ( teej patta)
  • 4 to 5 garlic
  • 1 tablespoon crushed black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil / butter
  • Some bread croutons
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon cornflour( optional)

Here i have used beetroot to get the rich red colour

You can use carrots also instead of beetroot


  • Take a kadai add in butter and oil
  • Now add in garlic,bay leaf
  • Saute,add onions, beetroot with tomatoes
  • Give it a nice mix
  • Add salt
  • Cover it with the lid
  • Cook for 5 minutes
  • Open the lid let the mixture cool down completely
  • Once it has cooled down take blender and blend it into fine paste

  • Strain it into bowl
  • Now in the same kadai pour the paste with water for a desired consistency
  • Take a small bowl add 2 tablespoon cornflour powder dilute it with little water and pour into the soup (again this is optional, if want vegan soup avoid cream)
  • Adjust the water as per the consistency
  • In my house everyone prefers a little diluted not thick
  • Once the soup starts boiling add salt,sugar and black pepper powder and butter
  • Serve them piping hot
  • Enjoy with croutons
  • Skipping cornflour will make this soup vegan, soup in itself is thick so one can avoid cornflour. But if you want it more thick add in one boiled/ mashed potato .
