The main ingredients:

  • Tomatoes. Although Roma tomatoes are my preference, any tomatoes you have work just fine. This soup is a great way to use up your garden abundance.
  • Onions. I prefer white onions but use whatever onions I have on hand.
  • Garlic. Use garlic cloves and not garlic powder for this. If you like, you can roast the garlic with the tomatoes. Or, add them to a bit of oil in the soup pot before adding the additional ingredients -this is the best method if you are using jarred minced garlic. Both methods are delicious.
  • Broth. Veggie or Chicken broth is used to give needed liquid to your soup. If you find your soup is too thick simply add a bit of additional broth to it.
  • Fresh Basil. Placing fresh basil right into the soup as it cooks infuses the soup with a wonderful basil flavor you can't find with dried basil.
  • Jalapeno. Totally optional...but I love throwing in half of a jalapeno to roast with the tomatoes and onion. The jalapeno adds a nice bit of heat to the soup.

Do you need to peel tomatoes for soup?

Nop, no...absolutely not this soup! Because you will be blending the whole thing there is no need to peel the tomatoes because they will get pulverized towards the end of the recipe.

What can I add to tomato soup?

  1. Swirl some red wine vinegar into the soup
  2. Serve with shredded mozzarella and croutons.
  3. Add a drizzle of pesto (homemade or store bought) and finish with toasted pine nuts and croutons.
  4. Add a teaspoon or two of Thai red curry paste and some cooked rice, then top with a dollop of coconut milk.
  5. Stir in chopped baby spinach, serve on cooked white beans.
  6. Add additional peppers to the roasting pan.
  7. Add cooked barley or quinoa, chopped chicken breast, and baby spinach to soup, top with shredded cheese.

How to make the soup:

  1. Roast the tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos with olive oil, salt, & pepper for about 35 minutes.
  2. Saute the minced garlic in a large soup pot.
  3. Add the roasted veggies and the juice on the pan to the soup pot.
  4. Stir the broth and basil into the soup pot.
  5. Simmer to blend all of the yummy ingredients together.
  6. Blend with an immersion blender.

Tip: A swirl of yogurt, coconut milk, or cream will add the perfect amount of added creaminess to this fresh recipe!
