Ok, listen, I get it. You’re all here today because you’re worried about me. You care about me as a person, but my actions are causing you problems.

You’re lined up with your speeches to tell me how I have negatively impacted your lives. I’ve seen the TV shows. I know how this works.

But let me tell you right here and now, I am drawing a line in the sand. You cannot make me change. This is who I am and you can either deal with it, or you can leave.

My name is Sarah, and I am addicted to soup. And not just soup. Soup with smoked paprika. Judge all you want, but I am proud of who I am. And I won’t stop making soup recipes that taste like they are infused with unicorn tears and bacon. Believe.

If you don’t want a homemade soup that is ready in 20 minutes when you get home late from work and you kick your heels off as hard as you can against the wall, your bra is halfway to the floor, and everyone is hungry, then FINE. Go eat somewhere else.

Because I’m staying put. With this soup. I don’t have a problem. You have a problem.

Can I Make This Whole30 Compliant?

Yes! Use olive oil or ghee instead of butter, and cashew or coconut milk instead of whole milk. Double-check your balsamic vinegar to make sure it is Whole30 compliant (no sugar, added sulfites, or caramel coloring).

Author: Sarah
  • 2 tbsp ghee or olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced or chopped
  • 2 28 oz cans San Marzano whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken or veggie stock
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk or original Nutpods
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • balsamic vinegar optional
  1. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, add the olive oil or butter over medium heat. Stir in the onion and allow it to cook down for 5-7 minutes.

  2. Add the garlic, and stir for another 2 minutes.

  3. Add the tomatoes (juice and all), and turn the heat up to medium-high. Break up the tomato chunks a bit and cook for a few minutes. Stir often, and don't let it burn.

  4. Add the stock, milk/cream, smoked paprika, parsley, basil, and oregano. Bring to a near boil stirring the whole time.

  5. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup to your desired consistency. Want it all smooth? Go for it! A few chunks? This is your world; this soup just lives in it. If you don't have an immersion blender, carefully transfer the hot soup to a blender. Leave the center cap on the lid off to allow the steam to release.

  6. Once blended, add the baking soda and stir to combine. You'll notice a bit of foaming action with the baking soda; totally normal. Finish with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to use normal milk or heavy cream if you consume dairy.

  1. Smoked paprika might just be the encouragement that I need to try some tomato soup!

  2. Smoked paprika was sent from God to make us happy!

  3. Canned whole tomatoes are seriously the most versatile canned good in our house! Soup, spaghetti sauce, and pizza sauce all in a short time! Not to mention everything they’re added to! I love them! I am curious though–what’s up with the baking soda? Is this a secret trick I’ve never heard of?! Intriguing, my friend! 🙂

    • This is the first year I have canned whole tomatoes, and I am looking forward to using them this winter!

      Thanks for asking about the baking soda. I should add a note about it in the post. Baking soda is my favorite secret cooking trick ever. I use it in tomato recipes and when I am making iced tea. Just a pinch neutralizes the acid in lots of foods. Some people add sugar to tomato products, but I don’t like sweetness with my tomatoes. The baking soda makes the taste more palatable without the sweet.

      • Ah…. good to know.

        I add 1 teaspoon of baking soda when making Boston baked beans in my pressure cooker as it’s supposed to help with digestion.

        I am pinning this recipe to try later. It’s not cold enough here for soup season yet, but we are getting closer each week. This recipe sounds good.

      • I have seen people add baking soda to beans, but I never knew why. I know many hummus recipes also recommend you put baking soda in while cooking the chickpeas.

  4. I love soup, too, but everyone else in my household is ambivalent! What am I to do? Mostly I just eat soup to my heart’s content.

    I’ve been searching for a good tomato soup recipe for the longest time. Everyone I try just isn’t right and my kids don’t understand. I’m hoping that this soup will finally be the one to make them say “Hey, soup’s pretty good! Can I have more?”

  5. I made this soup the other day and the whole family LOVED it! The only deviation from the recipe I did was to use the immersion blender in step 3. This soup was really easy and quick to make. I will make this one again. My son topped his bowl with Parmesan cheese.

  6. My mother in law just made this soup for us with grilled cheese sandwiches. It is by far the best tomato soup I have ever had! So much flavor and a million times better than any canned tomato soup. I will be recommending this to everyone!

  7. I had never made tomato soup before..never even thought about it actually but when I saw your recipe and how easy it was I had to try.   O..M..GAAAA!     IT IS AMAZINGLY GOOD!  

  8. Yassss, queen! This soup is a hit in my house. It satisfies my vegetarian husband and my toddler. We like to pair it with pimento grilled cheese.
