Tomato Soup Pasta with Kale is a simple, vegan dish that the entire family can enjoy. Make It from scratch or simple swap some time with using a canned soup. Either way, the end product is delicious! You'll also find suggestions to modify for a gluten-free diet and high protein soup. #tomatosoup #healthytomatosoup #vegansouprecipes
12ounceshigh protein spaghetti or alternative pasta of choice
2cupsbaby kale chopped
salt/pepper to taste
In a large pot over medium heat, add the olive oil and saute the onions and garlic until translucent (about 4 minutes).
Stir in the tomatoes, red pepper, Italian seasoning, and vegetable broth. Cover pot and let ingredients simmer together over medium heat for 15 minutes.
Remove lid and carefully add in the vinegar and brown sugar. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup together. Add in the dry pasta, maintain the medium heat and cook according to package instructions (usually about 10 minutes). Stir continuously throughout the cooking so pasta does not stick to the bottom.
When pasta is al dente, stir in the kale and let cook 5 minutes longer.
Remove from heat and portion tomato soup pasta into bowls. Serve with a fresh garden salad and optional shaved parmesan on top!
Don't have an immersion blender? No problem! A regular blender works just fine but there are a few things to keep in mind:
CAUTION: Do not fill the blender all the way! Only fill about halfway as hot liquids will expand. If you over-fill your blender, this is dangerous and may cause a hot blender explosion in your kitchen!
Since this will need to be done in batches, you will need a second vessel. So, grab an extra large mixing bowl and when one batch is done, pour the blended soup there. Once your last batch is in the blender, carefully pour the contents from the mixing bowl back into your large pot. Now your last batch of blended soup can enter the pot and the recipe can continue!
Tight on time? Scratch the tomato soup making and use a premade tomato soup with 1 cup of water added to it. I like Pacific Foods Tomato Basil Soup!
