Sattvic Tomato Soup
Use spring roll wrappers to create a satisfying sattvic tomato soup

Tomato is considered sattvic by some people. Others consider it to have rajasic qualities. Living Sattva recipes use tomato sparingly, mostly as an ingredient not as the base. Prepare tomato puree ahead of time for use in this recipe. If you use canned tomato puree, choose organic tomato puree. This soup is suitable for nirahara samyama and other spiritual or religious fasts. Eat with some crunchy and soft sweet dishes on the side, see suggestions below.

You need:

  1. 2 cups water
  2. 3 spring roll wrappers, rice papers
  3. 2 cups organic tomato puree
  4. 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
  5. 1 teaspoon black pepper-cumin powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  7. 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  8. Vegan butter or coconut oil or olive oil

To do:

  1. Break the spring roll wrappers and soak it in 1 cup warm water for 30 minutes.
  2. In a heavy bottom vessel add 1 cup water, tomato puree, salt, pepper-cumin powder, chili powder, grated ginger and stir well. Add the soaked spring roll wrapper.
  3. Bring the mixture to boil at medium heat. This can take 10-15 minutes. If you like your soup thin, add 1/2 cup water.
  4. Add butter and serve warm. If you are using coconut oil or olive oil, drizzle the oil after the soup has been served in the bowl.

Serving suggestions: Eat with crunchy Aama Wadda, Bondas, chewy cookies. You can also mix carrot chutney, peanut chutney or coconut chutney in your soup.
