Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups unsweetened plain dairy-free milk beverage
  • 5 cups tomato juice or V8 juice
  • Unsweetened dairy-free yogurt, sour cream alternative, or coconut cream, for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, red pepper flakes, and a sprinkle of salt. Sauté for 3 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Whisk in the flour and saute for about 1 minutes.
  2. Slowly whisk in the milk beverage. Cook, whisking often for about 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the tomato juice, and continue to cook for 20 minutes or until the color deepens. Skim off any foam that forms on top while cooking.
  4. Puree the soup in batches in your blender or food processor. If using your blender, remove the top piece from the whole and cover the hole with a tea towel while blending to allow steam to escape.
  5. Return the soup to your pot and add salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. Ladle the soup into bowls and swirl each serving with a dollop of dairy-free yogurt, sour cream, or coconut cream, if desired.
