Easy Healthy Dairy Free Tomato Soup

The winter season is fast approaching here in Central Wisconsin. That means this easy, healthy, and dairy free tomato soup is officially in our weekly meal rotation! With a sour dough grilled cheese sandwich, of course.


This is going to be one of those posts that has more words than pictures. This tomato soup is easy to make. But that’s easy for me to say! I’m not the one who made this batch, my Grandma made it. I took this jar of soup out of my parents pantry. They pick tomatoes from their garden, make huge batches of tomato soup, and can it for the winter.


Speaking of winter, I feel like I am surrounded by complainers. E-v-e-r-y-o-n-e around me complains about the weather. In the summer, it’s too hot. It’s too humid. Or, it’s too windy. In the winter, it’s too cold. There’s too much snow. It’s the wrong kind of snow, it doesn’t pack together to make a snowman. There’s not enough snow to open the snowmobile trails. There’s too much salt in the parking lot. There’s not enough salt on the roads. Why doesn’t someone shovel the sidewalk better, and earlier? Will summer ever come?


My response is always a deflective one, “I love our four seasons!” I embrace each season for different reasons. All of my senses just go wild and I get super excited as the season changes because the next one brings something I’ve been missing and look forward to doing.


Most of the time it has something to do with food. Like this easy, healthy, and dairy free tomato soup. It warms me up on cold, chilly winter days. We love making grilled cheese sandwiches on sour dough bread to go with it!



This soup was recently featured in my eCookbook: A Compilation of 20 Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes from My Favorite Food Blogs. You can get your FREE copy by signing up on my blog, at the top of the screen.



I wish I would have taken pictures with our grilled cheese sandwiches, but I didn’t. I am going to update this post with pictures to include our sandwiches because this is a fantastic vegan meal idea that is easy and healthy!


Do you ever get relief from eating something? Like you just did your body a service because you actually ate something that was entirely healthy? Once you try this soup, you will never be able to eat Campbell’s again. It’s so creamy. It tastes really, really good. It warms your chilled bones. It’s dairy-free, it’s healthy, and it’s made with real ingredients. You will feel soooooooooo good eating a bowl of this soup!



This soup will take you right to a nice and warm happy place. While you’re there, think about all of the reasons you enjoy the four seasons and the next time you are about to complain about the cold months, remember the reasons you love them instead! Your positivity about the little things will keep you thinking and speaking positive about everything else in your life. Complaining brings everyone down – even if you are just listening, it brings you down too.


Cheers to sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, down-hill skiing, snowshoeing, snowman building, hot chocolate, fresh snowfalls, warm soup, snuggling, ice skating, fresh air, snowball fights, and a warm bowl of soup!
