Tomato Soup: A Great Homemade Recipe (using fresh tomatoes)

Soups, Vegetarian | August 29, 2012 | By

Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes! Tomato sauce, tomato paste, tomato salsa. And my favorite – TOMATO SOUP! This is a great recipe for this time of year when tomatoes are going crazy. It’s easy, not too time-consuming, and is perfect for freezing in containers to use throughout the winter. There is not much that is better than a fresh-tasting bowl of tomato soup to go with that grilled cheese while the snow is flying outside.

The recipe for this tomato soup recipe is originally from Lindsay at Passionate Homemaking. I’ve made a few minor adjustments.

    Yummm! Since I don’t have tomatoes coming out of my ears (btw, what’s your source?), do you think I could make this in the winter using a canned tomato product (sauce, paste, stewed, etc) in lieu of fresh?? And if so what kind would you recommend?? Thanks!!!

      I am sure you could make this using stewed or diced tomatoes! I’d probably drain the water off first but I’m guessing it will work just fine. And my source is my parents’ garden….my dad always has a crazy amount of tomatoes (for FREE!)

      I did skip purée and used real sugar in place of sweetener Added shredded Parmesan cheese after cooked and it was delicious. We like the chunkier soup.
      Thanks for a great recipe and I have some to freeze so we can enjoy this winter

        For some reason all of your comments are coming through twice! Weird! As always, you can mix up the recipes however you want. I have young kids and they would never eat the chunky soup, so that’s why I puree it. I also think if you were to freeze it (which I do during the summer when I have lots of tomatoes) it tastes better (no mushy chunks of tomatoes) and freezes better. Thanks for stopping by!

    Mmmm. Sounds good. Frank and I made tomato soup a few days ago. With the hurricane dreary weather and extra tomatoes from the farmers market, we were craving tomato soup! I made mine with raw milk instead of chicken broth and with fresh basil instead of dried and just a pinch of baking soda to offset the acid. Not much different really. 🙂 When I was a kid, I used to eat tomatoes whole. Pick ’em right off the vine and eat them like apples. One of my favorite tomatoes recipes is also one of the most simple: http://www.thepolivkafamily.com/2012/08/tomato-basil-mozzarella-salad/
