Fresh and healthy, this Homemade Easy Tomato Soup tastes like a bowl full of summer! Use fresh or roasted canned tomatoes with dried basil for a creamy and delicious meal.
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).
Helpful Supplies for Homemade Easy Tomato Soup
- Heavy-bottomed saucepan/dutch oven/casserole dish. Everyone calls this thing something different as I found out during a hilarious Facebook conversation.
- Silicone spatula
- An immersion blender or normal blender
- Smoked Paprika
- Balsamic vinegar
- Whole Peeled Tomatoes. I like the Muir Glen brand when I don’t use my own home Whole Canned Tomatoes.
- Bread on the side! Can I recommend homemade Red Lobster Biscuits, No Knead Bread, or Garlic Bread – AKA Crack Bread?
Making this recipe or others?
Fresh and healthy, this Homemade Easy Tomato Soup tastes like a bowl full of summer! Use fresh or canned tomatoes for a creamy and delicious meal.
- 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
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.
Add the garlic, and stir for another 2 minutes.
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.
Add the stock, milk/cream, smoked paprika, parsley, basil, and oregano. Bring to a near boil stirring the whole time.
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.
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.
Feel free to use normal milk or heavy cream if you consume dairy.
