I’ve been staying with my in laws in Florida over the holidays and this soup has become somewhat of a celebrity. Family and friends alike have been asking for it almost daily, so I know that this crowd pleaser is one that you are going to love and that will be sure to help you impress your friends and family during the winter months.

I used the tomato and sourdough soup recipe from Jerusalem: A Cook Book by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi as a jump off point. I tried to make it without the sourdough and it came up a little flat and too peppery so I changed it up by adding more onions and rice vinegar and here is the result.

Perfect for those of you veggie-centric eaters like me.

This soup is so flavorful that you’ll think you’re drinking tomato sauce. Yet it has NO dairy and NO gluten making it a healthful option for almost anyone. I like to mount it with butter at the end, but you can skip this step and blend it without the butter, or you can even leave it chunky by skipping the blender all together.

Either way I know you’ll love it.
