This delicious easy tomato soup recipe only takes 20 minutes to make and 6 simple ingredients. It’s full of flavor, creamy and is vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.
This is my quick-and-easy healthier version of canned tomato soup. Canned cream of tomato soup is popular, but rather processed. It’s simple to make your own at home, and you can control the salt and sugar levels. This soup is full of tomato flavour. It’s creamy, thick, and delicious. Plus, it’s ready in just 20 minutes!
I’ve used fresh tomatoes (look for lovely dark red ones, ideally on the vine, for the most flavour). However, out of season you could substitute fresh tomatoes for two cans of chopped or plum tomatoes.
If desired, sieve the tomato soup over a large bowl for a smoother finish.
I’ve said it often on this blog, but I am a massive fan of soup. I eat soup nearly every day for lunch and I’m constantly whipping up big batches of various flavours to fill my freezer.
I’ve been known (often!) to have soup for breakfast, lunch and dinner – with a different flavour at every meal. It’s a great way to get your five-a-day and to use up veggies.
Some of my favourite soup recipes are Kale Soup, Vegan Laksa, Mexican Bean Soup, Beetroot Soup and Vegan Lentil Soup. All those lovely veggies turned into a tasty bowl of nourishing goodness. What’s not to love?
