cream of tomato soup and a cheese and onion pasty

creamtom

Ingredients:
2 tins of plum tomatoes
about a cup of water (rinse out tins with it)
1 onion
5 cloves of garlic
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 or 2 handfuls of cashew nuts
seasalt to taste

Place the tomatoes and water in a pan and bring to the boil, adding the onion, sweet potato and garlic as it heats. Once it boils, turn down to a simmer for 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are soft. Place soup in a blender and add the cashew nuts. Blend and taste for seasoning, add salt as desired.

If your blender is not very strong, try soaking the cashews in water overnight to soften them before using.

Pasty made in a very similar manner to the basic pasties on frugal but using Kamut flour in the pastry and filled with chopped red onion, cubed potatoes and cheezly, all cooked in a little soya milk first, also very good 🙂

  1. it’s a bit pretentious really isn’t it? but the chives get a second wind of fresh growth now before they die down for winter so I do like to stick them in and on food 🙂

  2. no, no! It’s beautiful! Although I could be saying that because I used to do it when working at the restaurant. 😀 Still it’s important to feed all our senses not just our nose and taste. It’s my excuse for eating with my hands also…although that would be difficult with soup!

  3. I just made a lovely tomato soup from Veganomicon, it was my first attempt but now Im a convert to homemade tomato soup! Aaaand I finally managed to blend avocados in my blender, so all in all a good day for cooking! But now Im going to have to try a cheese and onion pasty!

  4. have any of you tried the avocado and coconut dessert fromThe Vegan Cookbook by Baskerville and is it wakeman? It is the only way I will eat avocado which I think are disgusting

  5. no, but it is nice combined with banana and cocoa (or raw choc powder) – makes a nice creamy chocolate pudding. I love avos just as they are too though 🙂
