Easy Vegan Tomato Bisque Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 25 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 10 mins
2 medium red bell peppers
1 1/2 lbs whole tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup vegan cream
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1Preheating the oven to 200 degrees C. Halve the bell peppers, seed and trim them and lay out on a non-stick baking tray or a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Roast until softened and charred, for around 25 minutes. Wait for them to cool down before carefully removing the skin.
2Meanwhile, prepare the other vegetables. Fill a pot with boiling water. Make a score at the bottom of the tomatoes and submerge them in the water for around 10 minutes. Afterwards, drain, rinse and peel the tomatoes.
3While the tomatoes are in the water, heat some olive oil in a pan. Add onion, garlic and carrot, and cook for around 7-8 minutes, until softened.
4To a blender, add the tomatoes, roasted peppers, the cooked vegetables, vegan cream, nutritional yeast, tamari, balsamic vinegar, cumin, paprika, salt, and lemon juice. Blend until smooth.
5Transfer the soup to a large pot over a medium heat and stir to heat through for around 5 minutes before serving with a few swirls of vegan cream, fresh herbs and crusty bread.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
