Recipe type: Soup, Side, Entrée
Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan, Nut Free
Serves: 4 large bowls
Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp sea sat
  • 3 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 28 ounce can whole tomatoes, with their liquid
  • 2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • pinch black pepper
For serving (optional):
  • toasted croutons, fresh cilantro or basil, freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Once warm, add the garlic, onion and salt. Sauté for 5-10 minutes, or until onions are translucent. Add the tomato paste and continue to sauté for another 30 seconds.
  2. Pour in the tomatoes with their liquids and vegetable broth. Increase heat to high and bring the mixture to a low boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove pot from heat and let cool for a few minutes. Pour hot mixture into a blender with chickpeas, basil, coconut sugar, and pepper (do this in batches if needed).
  4. Blend soup on high until smooth and creamy, scraping sides as needed. Taste mixture and adjust flavor is needed (add more coconut sugar for sweetness, salt for saltiness, and basil for earthiness). Blend again and serve warm with optional toppings.
  5. Leftovers will keep refrigerated in airtight container for up to 3 days or in freezer for up to 3 months.
Notes
Nutrition information is a rough estimate of ¼ of the entire recipe without toppings.
