One pot + eight ingredient Carrot Tomato Soup – ready in under 30 minutes! Gluten Free + Low FODMAP + Vegan + Paleo
Tomato soup is proof that comfort can be both healthy and delicious. It’s also proof that you don’t always need to work so hard to get the most delicious flavours because sometimes all you need is some decent produce and maybe a little salt and pepper to spruce things up.
How to Make: Low FODMAP Tomato Carrot Soup
Altogether this soup is very easy to make. It can all be prepared in one cooking pot inside of 30 minutes with very little effort or technique required.
It all starts out with a quick sauté of ginger and carrots before adding the tomatoes, oregano and salt. The pot will feel pretty full, but do your best to stir this mixture together to evenly combine the spice and veg.
When you’re ready, add in the stock (more on that below) and let simmer for about 15-20 minutes until your carrots are fork tender and ready to blend.
Use an immersion blender to puree right in the bowl or blend this up in batches with a blender. If you use a blender you don’t fill it up more than a third of the way full or you’ll risk hot soup splattering all around your kitchen.
Low FODMAP Veggie Stock
If you’ve spent more than 30 minutes cooking on a low FODMAP diet then you already know exactly how difficult it can be to find and purchase FODMAP friendly ingredients – especially when it comes to broth/stock. I think as time goes on it will be easier and easier to find low FODMAP options in store, but at the present time it can be tricky. So you’ve got a few options: you can make your own or you can buy it online.
Full disclosure: A while back I did actually work with Casa de Sante using their vegetable stock powder and really loved it. Even though I’m not working with them right now and I am not getting paid to say this I would 10/10 still recommend.
Can I use water instead of stock?
Yes. However you should keep in mind that stock adds flavour. Using water instead of stock means you’ll probably need to add more seasoning to make up for it. Salt and pepper are your friends! If you feel like your soup is still missing something then add a splash of (gluten free) soy sauce for added umami.
- If the season is right top with some fresh basil, a generous sprinkling of ground black pepper, maybe throw in a few croutons for good measure!
- You can also never go wrong with a slice (or three) of crusty French bread on the side.
- For a cheesy addition, these gluten free spinach and feta parcels make a great side to a soup like this.
