I want to share one of my favorite lazy recipes with you today. This Quick and Easy Creamy Tomato Soup comes together with the least effort and tastes like you worked hard all day.
I have 2 different methods to cook it for you to choose from on this post, on the stove or in your slow cooker.
You can get the Instant Pot version of this recipe on my new site here: PlantBasedInstantPot.com.
Basically, you are cooking the oats and softening up the cashews. The oats and cashews are what makes this soup extra creamy.
I like my creamy tomato soup to be very thick, but you can add extra water to thin it out if you prefer it that way.
What’s your favorite easy soup to make on the weekend? Do you have an electric pressure cooker? Let me know in the comments below.
Quick and Easy Creamy Tomato Soup
- 1 - 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes can use tomato puree
- 1 - 28 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 cup cashew pieces
- 3 tablespoons oats rolled, steel-cut or Scottish
- 1 to 2 vegetarian bouillon cubes
- 1 tablespoon dried basil
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar optional
- salt and pepper to taste
Instant Pot Method
Add all the ingredients EXCEPT for the agave nectar, salt and pepper to your Instant Pot. Cook on manual for 5 minutes and let the pressure come down naturally - that will take about 10 minutes.
Slow Cooker Method
Add all the ingredients EXCEPT for the agave nectar, salt and pepper to your slow cooker. Cook on low 8 to 10 hours.
Add all the ingredients EXCEPT for the agave nectar, salt and pepper to a soup pot. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes to soften the cashews.
Carefully pour the cooked mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. You may need to do this in 2 batches. Add agave nectar if using and salt and pepper to taste. You can also add more water if the soup is thicker than you want it to be.
