Got tomatoes? Got 10 minutes? Cook up some homemade tomato soup using fresh tomatoes. 

 When it's cold out there you will love this simple, comforting, and easy to make soup that uses just 4 healthy ingredients. 

Tomato soup brings back memories from my childhood when I would eat a grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup for lunch.

In those days, my mom opened a can of commercially made Campbell's tomato soup, added water, heated it up, and we all loved it. It was part of a frugal meal that felt filling, warming, and comforting.

Today, I'm making my homemade version of tomato soup that I can make in 10 minutes! I like to think it's a little healthier with less sugar, additives, salt, and no toxic metals from the aluminum can than canned soup. 

This is a perfect last minute soup to make when you get home from work and want something nourishing, low calorie and low carb. Or make it in the morning before you start your day and just warm it up for dinner. Add protein such as cooked chickpeas or tofu for a quick complete meal.

I know I've been sharing a lot of soup recipes lately but it is soup season and truthfully I am a soup lover and soup enthusiast always trying to find easier ways to enjoy homemade soup.

Tomatoes, Spring Onions, Vegetables

What did I do? 2 quick easy steps
I simply blended (in the blender) quartered tomatoes, sliced onions, garlic or garlic powder until totally blended (about 1 minute). I then poured the liquid mixture into a saucepan, heated it for 6 minutes and then added 2 cups of vegetable broth and continued to heat for 2 more minutes.

This is the basic soup recipe
I enjoy it simple and basic, but from here it's up to you to let your imagination go wild and use your own creativity to add seasonings or toppings to the soup!!

Consider cumin, turmeric, chopped hot peppers, freshly chopped basil or parsley, diced cucumber, cooked rice, quinoa, rice noodles, chickpeas, tofu , zucchini spirals, etc.

One time I added a medley of chopped cucumber and red and yellow pepper as a garnish and another time added cooked rice before serving.

  1. Easy quick to make and super comforting and warming too.

  2. My family loves tomato soup! Yummmm!

    Hugs and blessings, Judee!

  3. Tomato soup is my favorite and this recipe looks so simple you could make it up in a flash any time!

  4. Your soup looks delicious. I like to add basil or oregano.

  5. I will make this. Thank you for sharing!

  6. Jude, I can’t believe this almost no-ingredient, no-minute soup LOL is so, so yummy, not to mention healthy in multiple ways (today I was looking for eye-healthy, i.e. tomatoes/lycopene). I multiplied the recipe to have enough for 3 people, thus hubby and daughter and I are sipping on it now, warming up, happy happy. Great Judee soup discovery as always.🥰 And though you were feelin’ the Campbell’s childhood experience, to me it evoked the elegant, delicate soups some of the more traveled Connecticut people who surrounded us on winter vacations, called “Consommé de Tomate.”

  7. It looks delicious!....a warm soup is always comforting during winter days!......Abrazotes, Marcela

  8. This really is a quick recipe. My go to one is from a vegetarian recipe book I got in the 90's. It's way more complicated but so comforting.
