No-Cook Tomato Soup

My veggie garden has been producing very well this year. And we managed to get if fenced well enough to keep the deer out! Are you experiencing an over load of tomatoes, too? While I’m dehydrating and freezing some, we like eating them right now as well. When the weather is especially warm I like having this delicious ‘No-Cook Tomato Soup’ on hand for a quick lunch, dinner or snack. As I have mentioned before, if I don’t have exactly all the ingredients on hand I will use something similar. It may change the texture and taste a bit but it always turns out to be tasty!!! This goes really well with the Veggie Surplus Quick Bread &/or the Flourless Nuts & Seeds Bread

No-Cook Tomato Soup 4 – 1 ½ cup servings

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups coarsely chopped tomatoes0826151241
  • 1 coarsely chopped red pepper
  • 1 medium coarsely chopped zucchini
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 – 11.5 oz can tomato juice
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 2 minced clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil (or 1/8 cup parsley plus 1 drop Basil Essential Oil  Purchase HERE)
  • ¼ cup crumbled soft goat cheese

 Directions:

  • Pulse tomatoes in batches in food processor/blender, making sure some chunkiness remains; pour into large bowl
  • Pulse bell pepper until finely chopped (since I use a blender I add a little of the tomato juice in to aid the peppers and not burn out the motor); adds to tomatoes.
  • Pulse zucchini and onion until zucchini is chopped; add to tomatoes (again I have some of the tomato juice with them)   
  • Stir in tomato juice, water, garlic, salt & pepper to veggies in the bowl
  • Cover & refrigerate at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend (I’ve kept it in the refrigerator up to a week. We usually eat it up before then so I don’t know how well it last past that. I’m pretty sure you could freeze it.)
  • Stir in basil before serving; serve & garnish with goat cheese
