Easy Homemade Tomato Soup

Prepare to be amazed by the simplicity of this EASY HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP. Yes, you can make this!

I’ve always been a fan of tomato soup, and as a kid remember my mom opening a can when we were hungry and she was pressed for time. Years later, I’ve come to understand that yes, canned soup does have a place in the pantry. Thankfully an even more delicious option is available and this easy homemade tomato soup is it!

Here are some tried and true tips:

Ingredients for Tomato Soup

SAN MARZANO TOMATOES

We often crave a dish like this in the fall and winter months when locally grown tomatoes are a distant memory, but a homemade tomato soup using canned tomatoes can still deliver. This recipe calls for cans of San Marzano tomatoes from Italy, famous for their sweetness and intense flavour.

Onions, beets and carrots add just the right amount of sweetness

ONION, BEET AND CARROT

The flavour of sweet onion is essential to this recipe. Look for Vidalia onions, if possible, and allow them to almost melt into the butter when slow-cooking them. Don’t like butter? Swap it out for coconut oil. Word of advice: never add garlic to tomato soup; it will make it bitter.

Adding beet and carrot eliminates the need for processed sugar. Yes, a certain sweetness in this soup makes the tomato flavour shine, but achieving it with other vegetables keeps things wholesome and healthy.

Oregano, celery salt and a tiny bit of sugar

SEASONING AND GLUTEN-FREE OPTION

The simple addition of the kosher and celery salts, plus a touch of dried oregano, keep the recipe’s tomato flavour front and centre. If using fresh oregano, reduce the quantity by half.

Adding the flour thickens the soup up, but those wishing a gluten-free soup can simply skip this step and go right to adding the pure vegetable broth (head HERE for the recipe). The soup will be a bit runnier but it won’t impact the flavour.

FINAL STEP

The final step where we purée everything together is essential to creating that silky, smooth texture we all associate with this favourite soup. I usually use an IMMERSION BLENDER and love the way it slowly creates such a luxurious purée. Click our Amazon links below if you’re interested in purchasing one.

I’ve always been a big fan of serving this delicious soup with an equally delicious sandwich, and of course, I have suggestions. Try our tomato soup with my favourite GRILLED PANINI or our CAPRESE PANINI. For groups with a serious appetite, go for broke and make them our incredible BEST GRILLED CHEESE.

Gorgeously coloured and richly flavoured, this HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP recipe is perfect whenever you’re craving something wholesome.
