Creamy Vegan Tomato Apple Soup

September 30, 2020
Fall is finally here in New England and that means the orchards are full of apples and my garden is overflowing with tomatoes. I picked a peck of apples over the weekend and raided the garden for tomatoes before the first frost, so I had an abundance of both in my kitchen. Being in peak season at the same time, it was only natural to combine the two to create a warm, savory soup.

I used yellow tomatoes in this recipe but you can use any type of tomatoes you can get your hands on. I also used honey crisp apples but again, you can use whatever you have access to. Soup is forgiving and hard to mess up so feel free to play around with different flavors. Served with a side salad or a grilled cheese, this makes for the perfect fall meal.
