About the recipe for raw vegan Italian fresh tomato soup

When it comes to fresh soups, or Zuppa Fresca (Italian form), Italian cuisine has the most recipes in this field. They are most known about the use of a balanced amount of ingredients, especially for their cuisine and food. Also, the quality of the ingredients used in Italian food makes their dishes very special. All Italian recipes are about enhancing the main flavors they need to be revealed, and for a good reason. For example, pasta recipes are very simple, and the sauce’s flavor does not overpass the pasta flavor. They are not overusing the additional ingredients like us, Americans. Another example is they don’t overuse the Parmesan cheese on pasta. Returning on our recipe, the fresh tomato soup (or Zuppa di Pomodoro Fresca) is a light, simple and very healthy dish, used worldwide especially for weight-loss diet and time-saving cooking. By boiling or heating the vegetables for soup, these are losing some of the nutritional properties. Therefore, making the soup with fresh tomatoes is the Italian way of keeping the health benefits, the simplicity and great taste of food.

 

 

Why raw vegan or vegetarian recipe, without meat?

For the Italian fresh tomato recipe, I am focusing on nutritional benefits and weight loss diet. Moreover, raw vegan or vegetarian recipes are fewer than the ones with meat in their composition, therefore I wanted to make a recipe for almost all types of lifestyle.

 

 

Can I eat the Italian fresh tomato soup with MEAT in it?

Of course, you can. If you don’t want to lose weight or didn’t embrace the raw vegan or vegetarian lifestyle (or you simply like the taste of meat… sooo much), it’ll be a perfect combination if adding chicken or turkey breasts on the ingredient list. To say it more clearly, there will be the third step for meat-eaters, in which you’ll add the cooked (whole) chicken or turkey breast. Do not blend as you did with the veggie ingredients.

 

 

Can I prepare this raw vegan fresh tomato soup to help me lose weight and have health benefits?

As I said above, one of the reasons I made this recipe as you found in the steps below is the weight-loss diet. I do recommend you to save this raw vegan fresh soup in your meal plan and enjoy the nutritional benefits and weight-loss program. Being prepared as a mix with blended fresh veggies doesn’t lose any nutrients. You’ll have on the table one of the most healthy and nutritive soup, a lot of time to your disposal due to the fact it can be quickly made and lose weight or body fat.

 

 

Do you need to peel the skin of tomatoes for this fresh soup?

Well, the answer is YES and NO, depending on how intense to be the taste wanted. Keeping the tomatoes unpeeled, makes the soup more flavorful but you’ll have some tomato skin in your bowl, affecting its design. Peeling the tomatoes will result in a greater design because the skin won’t be present in the bowl, but will lose the tomato flavor intensity. But there is a third way, a middle one: cut the tomatoes in smaller pieces (minimum 6) and then start blending. The smaller the pieces are cut, the lesser the skin will be. The tomato skin found in the bowl will be present in a small amount, but you’ll have the flavor intensity of an unpeeled tomato.

 

 

Can I freeze or refrigerate fresh tomato soup?

Like any soup, you can freeze this one for up to 3 weeks, or refrigerate it for up to 3 days. But being quickly prepared, it is unfortunate to prepare it in advance and keep it in your freezer for 3 weeks. The best recommendation I can give you is to prepare 1 or 2 servings and serve directly.

 

 

How do you peel tomatoes for soup?

If you choose to peel the tomatoes and use them in soup, follow the steps written by Wall Street Journal (the image above is theirs):

1. Using a small, sharp knife, slice a shallow X into the bottom of each tomato opposite the stem end.

2. Gently place tomatoes in a pot of boiling water. Boil until X begins to split wider, or 25 seconds, whichever comes first. Do not boil longer or flesh will begin to cook.

3. Remove tomatoes immediately from boiling water with a slotted spoon and place directly into a bowl of ice water to halt cooking.

4. Gently peel skin from flesh. Barely any flesh should come off with skin. Discard skin and proceed with recipe.

 

 

Is tomato soup anti-inflammatory?

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, an anti-inflammatory nutrient that fights inflammation in the body. Tomatoes are easy to use in all your dishes, so why not eat raw and cooked. One of the recipes for fresh tomatoes is this one. If you need anti-inflammatory veggies, this is one of them. If you want to know what vegetables are also anti-inflammatory, walkinlab.com made a great article about this matter.
