Easy Tomato Soup

Jump to recipe

This packed with flavour Easy Tomato Soup takes only about 30 minutes to make. Serve it with toasted bread for a perfect lunch or dinner on a cold winter day.

Hello, everyone. I hope you’re doing fine. So am I. Except for the fact it’s been extremely cold outside (The temperature has been significantly dropping…or that’s the winds…the bottom line is it’s freezing, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop. You know me, I rarely complain about cold temperatures.)

Anyway, I’ve just come from outside, and I am trying to right this post down, with my trembling fingers. Well, a little bit too dramatic? Correct. I just wanted to emphasize the weather situation. And what’s great for a cold winter day? Again correct. Soup. Even better, this Easy Tomato Soup.

Believe me or not, I’ve never had tomato soup. That’s not precise, though. Certainly, I have eaten tomato soup made with real tomatoes, particularly in summer. However, I’ve never had an American staple – tomato soup and grilled cheese. In fact, I knew you can use canned tomatoes (Which are probably much more delicious than real tomatoes during the wintertime), but I was sceptical about this option.

I must admit I was so wrong! With a little help of herbs and spices, you can make phenomenal tomato soup with canned tomatoes. In this recipe I used smoked paprika, chilly flakes, Italian seasonings, and fresh basil. Simple yet absolutely delicious. The soup is creamy on its own, but a little touch of cream and butter won’t hurt. That time I passed on grilled cheese, but at lest some toasted bread (Or even better, cheesy toasted bread) is a must, in my book.

I did like this Easy Tomato Soup so much that I made another version a week later. Indeed, I am making another batch of tomato soup, and I’ll share it with you, too.

With one of the coldest months, February, approaching, making some healthy yet hearty and soul-warming tomato soup is such a great idea.

Cheers and see you soon.

    I love tomato soup, especially with grilled cheese and especially especially in winter! This sounds delicious and so comforting!

    I’m with ya on the tomato soup thing. It’s so easy, but it’s the perfect thing for a cold winter day! And canned tomatoes really are better in the winter. I’ve tried real tomatoes – they look good, but flavor just isn’t there. If you make this soup again, look for canned Marzano tomatoes from Italy. They’re more expensive, but definitely worth it. Trust me! Love the addition of smoked paprika here. Well done, Ben, well done.
