Cream of Tomato Soup

Prep: 15 minutes

Serves:2-4

By Chef AJ
A much healthier version of a childhood favorite with a twist, reminiscent of Campbell’s Cream of Tomato Soup.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 6-8 large basil leaves
  • juice of one lemon
  • 2 tbsp sun-dried tomato powder
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder (or more, to taste)
  • 1 cup shelled hemp seeds

Directions

Place all ingredients except for hemp seeds in a high powered blender and blend until smooth. By using a high powered blender the soup will become warm without having to heat it. Add hemp seeds and blend again until creamy.

If you can't find sun dried tomato powder you can easily make your own by taking the hard sun dried tomatoes (not oil packed) and placing them in a coffee grinder.
