tips, trick & other recipes
- For this creamy, vegan tomato soup I used slivered almonds. Use what you have on hand.
- Almond can be easily interchanged with cashews. The nuts are the magic ingredient that gives the creaminess to the tomato soup.
- Every time I open a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce I blend the chipotle peppers with the sauce to make a “paste”. I store this paste in a glass container in the fridge.
- With this paste, you can make salad dressings, or add it to sauces, other soups, mayo, etc.
- Here are other soups with a Mexican twist: creamy vegan mushroom soups, a Mexican vegetable soups, lentil soup, vegan posole, Mexican chicken soup.
