Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion roughly chopped
  • 1 medium sweet potato peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 medium red bell peppers sliced
  • 1-14.5 oz can diced tomatoes in juice
  • 3 1/4 cup warm water
  • 6 oz almond milk unsweetened (or your preferred milk)
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • Kosher salt & pepper to taste

Cheesy toasted bread

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 oz cheddar cheese grated

Instructions

  • In a medium pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion until soft.
  • Add the sweet potato & red bell peppers.
  • Sauté for 3 minutes.
  • Add the can of tomatoes, almond milk, water & vegetable stock cube.
  • Cover the pot and simmer for 25 minutes.
  • Let the vegetables cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Add vegetables to a blender in two separate batches and pure until smooth.
  • Return to the pot and season with kosher salt & black pepper. Heat soup again if needed.

Cheesy toasted bread

  • Preheat grill or skillet to medium-high. Toast the bread on both sides and flatten it with a spatula.
  • Sprinkle bread with cheese on one side and grill until melted. Turn bread with cheese on the bottom part and grill until cheese is crispy.
  •  Cut heart shapes using a cookie cutter (or any shape you like). Or just cut the toast in small squares with a knife to save time.
