Consider the tangy, flavor-packed sun-dried tomato when making soup.

Food writer, nutritionist and cookbook author Sarah Britton has a new collection of recipes out that every vegetarian should add to their library. These dishes, like sun-dried tomato soup with couscous, are packed with the kind of flavor and nutrition that keep you full and satisfied.

This hearty dish is a perfect meal to enjoy when the first autumn days are creeping in and you need a little coziness, but you can also enjoy it cold. By using a combination of sun-dried and canned tomatoes, you’ll add tons of umami notes to a totally vegan soup. The texture of the couscous topping provides a welcoming contrast to the smooth purée, while the olives lend a salty bite and the parsley adds a fresh note.

Harissa is a Tunisian hot chile paste. It’s easy to make (the recipe is on the My New Roots blog!), or look for it premade at the grocery store. If you do not have harissa paste, simply add some cayenne pepper or smoked hot paprika as desired.
