Roasted Tomato Soup
There's nothing like a steamy bowl of tomato soup to warm the soul and nourish the body.
Growing up, my dad would make some sort of tomato-based soup pretty much every weekend. Now tomato soup is, of course, one of those comfort foods I faithfully turn to.
This tomato soup not only provides that rich, creamy comfort we crave, it also provides a heaping dose of nutritional goodness. First of all, it's completely plant-based using any dairy-free milk of choice (preferably home-made as many store-bought brands contain not-so-healthy fillers and preservatives), my favourite for this recipe is home-made tiger nut milk. However, what gives it the most nutritional impact is using fresh, local, organic tomatoes.
Tomatoes provide many health benefits due to their rich lycopene content. Lycopene is a nutrient that belongs to the carotene group, so the redder the tomato, the more abundant the lycopene! This mighty nutrient has proved to be protective against many cancers, cataracts, macular degeneration and has even been shown to lower the risk of heart disease. Better yet, lycopene is more readily released as tomatoes are cooked or processed, which means a bowl of this creamy delight provides a nice hearty dose.
