There are few things in life that make a classic comfort food like a bowl of tomato soup. It is comforting, delicious, and one of those dishes that just makes everything feel better. For years, I’ve been making this fresh, homemade tomato soup and I can safely say, it is still our absolute favorite.

How to Make Tomato Soup Recipe

To make my tomato soup, I start by drizzling a bit of olive oil into a heavy bottomed pot, such as a Dutch oven set over medium heat.

To the olive oil, I add tomatoes and any garlic, if I’m using it.

Next, I pour in my chicken stock, crushed tomatoes, and add my seasonings of salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes.

My recipe is a little spicy, which I much prefer to a bland tomato soup. But if you don’t like your tomato soup spicy, just cut back a bit on the black pepper and omit the red pepper flakes. Taste as you go with the black pepper to make it just perfect for your taste buds.

I let my soup cook for about 10 minutes and then use my immersion blender to make my tomato soup smooth and creamy.

Then, I love to add a swirl of cream to the top of my soup or even stir a bit into the bowl and top with a bit of fresh basil or parsley for garnish.

What to Serve with Tomato Soup

  • Grilled Cheese – We love our soup served with a grilled cheese sandwich! Our absolute favorite is of Pimento Cheese and it is amazing.
  • Oyster Crackers
  • Garlic Bread

  1. Thank you so much for posting this recipe!! I have been looking for a good tomato soup recipe is not made with a milk or a cream base. I have a wimpy tummy that does not handle milk products very well.

    Can’t wait to try this.

  2. Ok so i found your recipe on pinterest about an hour and a half ago and it sounded sooo delicious so my mother and I searched the pantry and fridge for ingredients, made it and we’ve already eaten it!(not the whole thing but im sure we couldve made room!)Anyway, in ours we added a bit of parmesan and chopped basil in the soup and it was wonderful! oh and halfway through we decided to make a grilled cheese to go along with it and wow, the perfect compliment! Thank you so much! -Kamille

    1. I’m so glad you liked it, Kamille! It’s definitely one of my favorite soups. It is perfection with a grilled cheese sandwich, isn’t it?

  3. I have been looking for a tomato soup recipe that doesn’t have “cream” base so that can be canned and stored. This is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks so much, this is perfect as the cream is added after you cook it, same can apply after heating up a jar from the pantry! Amazing!! Can hardly wait for my fresh tomatoes to ripen in the garden.

  4. I just got a vitamix and it makes soups. Do you think it would work with this recipe? It seems it would. This looks super yummy!

  5. I have not made this tomato soup, but I sure will. What if you do not have access to fresh tomatoes, only grocery store tomatoes? Can more canned tomatoes be used?

    1. If I don’t have fresh tomatoes from the garden I use grocery store tomatoes in this soup. Hope you enjoy!
