This Creamy Vegan Tomato Soup is so delicious and comforting. Topped with sweet cashew cream, more sriracha, and freshly chopped green onions for an unbelievable flavor. Less than 10 ingredients and ready in as little as 20 minutes!
What is it about tomato soup that makes you feel all warm and tingly on the inside? It’s so comforting. Rainy Day? Tomato soup. Did someone break your heart? Tomato soup. Going to prison for tax evasion? Tomato soup.
The point is we all seek comfort from a big bowl of creamy homemade tomato soup. Nothing wrong with comfort. But, sometimes comfort and healthy don’t always go together like…tomato soup and grilled cheese.
Personally, I prefer not to have cholesterol or cow secretions in my food. But, I do love creamy tomato soup. So, when I was working on this soup recipe my goal was to create that same creamy and comforting essence. But, keep it healthy.
So, let’s get to making this Creamy Vegan Tomato Soup!
How To Make Vegan Tomato Soup
This tomato soup recipe is so easy! You only need 8 ingredients and about 20 minutes.
First, add the tofu and maple syrup to your blender. Then, blend until it’s completely smooth. Add the Cento Crushed Tomatoes, garlic powder, Sriracha, smoked paprika, and salt to the blender. And, blend until all the ingredients are well combined.
Pour everything into an “unheated” saucepan. Open the 2nd can of whole Cento Peeled Tomatoes, crush them by hand, and add to the pan with the oregano. Feel free to add some fresh basil as well.
Cook the soup over medium-low to medium heat, stirring occasionally until the soup is completely heated. Watch it carefully and don’t let it burn.
Finally, pour this creamy vegan tomato soup into a bowl, drizzle with the cashew cream, Sriracha, and sprinkle with freshly chopped green onion. That’s it! Delicious Creamy Vegan Tomato Soup.
Fresh Tomatoes vs. Canned Tomatoes
My favorite canned tomatoes to use are Cento Crushed Tomatoes and Cento Whole Peeled Tomatoes. Why? Because they’re delicious and convenient. And, they also have a very low sodium content compared to other brands.
Feel free to tweak this recipe and use fresh tomatoes if you like. But, for most people, convenience is the biggest factor when it comes to eating healthier. So, that’s the main reason I decided to use canned tomatoes over fresh tomatoes.
Remember, comfort and health don’t have to be mutually exclusive. So, the next time you have an extra 20-30 minutes and need something warm and comforting, make this Creamy Vegan Tomato Soup.
It’s easy to make, super creamy, insanely healthy, and super delicious!
This Creamy Vegan Tomato Soup is pretty delicious and one of my favorite recipes! Because it’s…
- Easy to make
- Gluten free
- Ready in minutes
- A little spicy, smoky, and sweet
- & Delicious
This healthy homemade tomato soup is great for a meal on the lighter side or a great addition to an even bigger meal. If you want a little more “kick” sprinkle a little red pepper on top. Very nice.

This was a simple and delicious recipe! I used low sodium tomatoes and tofu and it was sooooo good. I loved the easy peasy throw everything in the blender style! I roasted red pepper and green pepper and added to the soup to give it a treat and in my book this is an A+. Thank you Shane for your hard work and sharing your recipes with us. Tomato soup is a fav with me.
Thank you so much!!!
Amazing! Even my husband loved it!
Excellent soup and so quick and easy! Definitely on rotation.
This is not the usual tomato soup. It’s zippy and sweet, and you can’t taste the tofu. It was delicious! So easy to make too. THANKS! 🙂
thank you so much!!!
I have never really used Tofu . I imagine it is important ingredient in the soup for creaminess.
The soup looks great! I’m new to eating plant based. Thanks for your great recipes!
Hey, Sharon! Welcome aboard. Yes, the tofu is for the creaminess but you could also use 1 cup of cashews blended in the soup. The tofu is lower in fat option. Don’t ever hesitate to reach out:) Blessings.
i want to make this wonderful sounding & looking soup. But would also like to have the same crackers or toast (?) I’m not high tech, have macular degeneration don’t do
instant gram, etc. Could you email me & identify the toasts or cracker. I really enjoy your site & have tried several of your recipes. My family loves your salad with apples & awesome honey mustard dressing. My husband thinks it’s so much better than his favorite bottled one. Thanks. Blessings, Jayne
Jayne, thank you so much. I wish you well. The toast in the pictures is simply Dave’s Killer Bread. I toast it then slice lengthwise with a knife. That’s all there is to it. I hope this helps. I’m so glad you all enjoy the salad and dressing:) Blessings to you. ~Shane
This was sooooo good….I did not have Sriracha, and I added basil. I also did not have the Cento Brand, but another. I added all to the vitamin and let heated it up in there. So simple and delicious.
Hallie, that’s awesome! Just use what you got and make it your own. And, Cento is not “necessity” it’s just what I like. Thanks so much for reaching out and your kind words. I’m so glad you enjoyed the soup. Now, if it would just get COLD! LOL! Blessings.
Can this be cooked in the Vitamix? or does it have to go in a separate pot?
It could be cooked in the vitamix as long as there is room:)
Made this for my non-vegan friend, for dinner, She loved it and actually wanted the recipe.!!!
Baby steps. i might just convert her one of these days. Already have her hooked on your Banana Bread,.
Lucille, that is awesome! Slowly but sure we’re changing lives:) Thank you for sharing!
Shane, I forgot to mention that I had cashew cream left. So, used it as a sandwich spread on my garden tomato and lettuce sandwich. Divine!
Then used some spread on my corn on the cob!!! Yummy!!!
Warm and comforting.
Wow another great one, Shane….I made this for lunch today and it was delicious.
Awesome!!! So glad you enjoyed it.
Another winner!!!! I didn’t have Sriracha or cashews in the pantry. However, it was a cold dreary day and I didn’t want to wait. I used Franks Red Hot sauce. I had some Plant Based Parmesan in the fridge. So, I topped my bowl of Tomato Bisque with the Parmesan and some crunchy bread cubes.
It was totally delicious,?
And an added bonus…my husband, who does not follow a plant based diet, liked it.
Lucille, that is so great to hear! I LOVE your additions, especially Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I put that $#!@ on everything! LOL! Pumped your husband likes it. Tell him I said to “stay the course!” 🙂 Blessings.
This looks amazing, can’t wait to try it
Thanks, Michael! I hope you enjoy it. Peace.
I’m from Europe and can’t buy the Cento stuff here. There isn’t a health food store in my neighboorhood where I can buy canned tomatoes without lots of added salt and sugar. So can I use fresh tomatoes? If so how many for this recipe? It is also pretty difficult to buy silken tofu! what alternative can I use if any?
I would try any grocery store and look for regular canned tomatoes that might say “low sodium.” That should be available. If not, you most certainly could use real tomatoes. One large tomato is about 7 ounces. So, if you used 6-8 large tomatoes you should get the same amount of sauce you would from a can. Hope this helps and good luck!!! Peace.
