Vegan Thai Tomato Soup!

So I’m ashamed to say, I’ve never really had Thai food. However, I recently had Thai tomato soup at work, and it was delicious. So of course, I had to figure out how to make it. I adapted this recipe from Cooking Light, with a few tweaks 🙂 Here’s what I did:

Vegan Thai Tomato Soup

  • 1 small onions, chopped
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 28 oz can tomatoes, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup light coconut milk
  • 2 packets stevia
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 tsp lime juice

Saute the onions on med high heat. (I didn’t really use any oil, I just sprayed the pan with cooking spray.) Cook until the onions are tender, then add garlic and ginger. I burned my onions a bit, but they still tasted good. 🙂 Then add them to a pot with the tomatoes & water, and bring to a boil. Once it’s boiling, add the coconut milk, stevia and spices, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. It’s delicious and a big cup of it only has ~80 calories.

I ate mine with some salad topped with 2tbsp of hummus, thinned with 1 tbsp of coconut milk. Oh and I added a few crushed pretzels on top. Yummy!

Have you ever had Thai food? Do you have a favorite Thai recipe? What do you like to eat soup with?

  1. Thai food is some of my favorite! I am a huge fan of any Thai green curry.

    I love that you thinned your hummus with coconut milk! I will have to try that. I love to eat soup with grilled cheese sandwiches!

  2. Mighty yummy looking soup, Liz. I really enjoy veggie pad Thai with lots of broccoli when I get the chance to eat it. Love the sauce and crushed peanuts.

  3. That soup looks good! I am not usually a fan of thai food, but that recipe def looks like its worth a shot to make! =)

  4. Mmm that soup looks good! I like some Thai food, it just depends what it is.

  5. I’ve never eaten at a Thai restaurant, but we have prepared some Thai-inspired food in our kitchen. I absolutely love coconut milk with lots of spices in a dish–your soup looks wonderful!
