This vegan roasted tomato soup is made with creamy coconut milk and Thai red curry paste for an Asian spin on the comfort food classic. You will be making this easy soup recipe again and again!
When the weather cools down, we love warming up with comforting and nutritious bowls of soup. Whether is a bowl of Lebanese chicken soup, vegan seafood chowder or Turkish red lentil soup, soups are the ultimate one-pot meal that feeds a crowd.
We always have Wild Wonders® and Angel Sweet® grape tomatoes on hand because they’re perfect for snacking (especially when you have lots of tiny fingers in the house always looking for snacks!)
We always have Wild Wonders and Angel Sweet cherry tomatoes on hand because they’re perfect for snacking (especially when you have lots of tiny fingers in the house always looking for snacks!)
Even though SUNSET® tomatoes are already bursting with flavor, roasting them in the oven with a little olive oil emphasizes the rich flavor even further.
Can I use any type of SUNSET tomato for this roasted tomato soup recipe?
Yes! Absolutely. Any variety of tomato will work including Campari®, Zima® or Kumato®. If your tomatoes are not grape-sized, simply cut them in smaller pieces before tossing with olive oil and roasting.
What are the benefits of roasting tomatoes?
There are several benefits to roasting tomatoes before turning them into soup. First, it’s a great way to use up tomatoes that are slightly past their prime. By roasting them you avoid food waste which is a huge way to save money on your food budget. Second, roasting caramelizes the naturally occurring sugars in tomatoes resulting in a super rich, flavorful tomato.
Once you’ve roasted the tomatoes, simply place them in a high speed blender (this is the blender I love to use!)
Next, I add Thai red curry paste and full fat Thai-style coconut milk to the blender plus additional salt and pepper to taste. At this point you will pulse until you’ve reached your desired consistency. Feel free to make it as smooth or chunky as you wish!
Are you vegan or vegetarian? Great news: this roasted tomato soup recipe is naturally vegan and contains no butter, milk or cream.
What is Thai red curry paste?
Thai red curry paste is a super aromatic and versatile paste made red chili peppers, garlic, sea salt, lemongrass and turmeric. It can be purchased online, large national retailers or international markets.
Can this soup be served chilled?
Absolutely! It tastes delicious served chilled, room temperature or hot.
Can I freeze this tomato soup?
Of course! It will stay good in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to three months.
How far in advance can I make this tomato soup?
I would suggest roasting the tomatoes up to 3 days in advance then pureeing everything in the blender before serving. Note: you’ll need to warm on the stove first if you want to enjoy it warm.
To serve, I love to top the bowl with a few leftover roasted whole tomatoes plus a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Toasted pumpkin seeds or cilantro would be a great garnish as well!
Your spoon is waiting.

Can’t wait to try this! I’ve been looking for a Thai tomato soup recipe!
Editorial note: You should remove ‘shrimp paste’ from the list of ingredients you share of the Thai Red Curry Paste. It doesn’t actually contain shrimp paste and, if it did, the soup would neither be vegetarian nor vegan.
Great point Mary – we removed it! You’re correct Thai red curry paste is vegan. :) Enjoy!
