Author Notes

This soup is rich and velvety from the addition of cashew cream, and three different sources of tomatoes give it a complex flavor. It is the ultimate vegan comfort food. Serve with crusty whole grain bread for dunking. —Kayli Dice

What You'll Need
  • 10 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (plus more for roasting cherry tomatoes)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, roughly diced
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews

Is a Vitamix too strong for this?

A Vitamix will work wonderfully for both the cashew cream and pureeing the soup!
