Recipe: Homemade Tomato Soup


I posted a few years ago the recipe for a Cream of Tomato Soup. This week I made a slightly different version of Tomato Soup, and we really enjoyed it.

Grilled Cheese is one of our favorite things to eat, especially when it is on homemade bread with a variety of cheeses. We LOVE cheese. 😉 So, this week, rather than just grab cans of tomato soup at the store, I decided to change it up a little with the homemade version. It was simple and delicious, ready in less than 45 minutes.

I hope you all enjoy it as well!

Tomato Soup

3 TBSP butter

1 onion, chopped

1 cup carrots, chopped

3 cans – 14 oz diced tomatoes, with juice

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

2 cups milk

1 tsp dried basil

black pepper, to taste

salt, optional (I didn’t use it, but if your broth is low sodium you may opt to use it)

  1. Melt butter in stockpot. Add in onions and carrots, cooking til soft…5-10 minutes.
  2. Add in tomatoes, broth, milk and basil. Bring to boil and then simmer with lid on, for about 35 minutes.
  3. Use immersion blender to blend soup to smooth consistency. Add pepper to taste.
  4. Serve with grilled cheese or with cheese sprinkled on top. Yum!

You could add other things like celery or garlic or anything else for more flavor. I was just in a bit of a time crunch and didn’t have time to chop those. 🙂
