Cozy Up with a Bowl of Homemade Tomato Soup

Tomato soup is a classic comfort food that’s perfect for a cozy night in or a quick lunch. In Allorecipes, we’ll go over how to make a delicious and creamy tomato soup recipe that’s easy to make and packed with flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cans (28 oz) whole peeled tomatoes
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  2. Add the canned tomatoes (including the juice) and chicken or vegetable broth to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the pot from heat and let it cool for a few minutes. Use an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Return the soup to the pot and add the heavy cream, sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
  5. Heat the soup over low heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
  6. Serve hot with your favorite toppings, such as croutons, fresh herbs, or a drizzle of olive oil.

Tips:

  • If you don’t have an immersion blender or regular blender, you can use a potato masher to mash the tomatoes until smooth.
  • You can use canned diced tomatoes instead of whole peeled tomatoes for a chunkier soup.
  • For a vegan version, use coconut milk instead of heavy cream.
  • Add some fresh basil or oregano for an extra burst of flavor.
  • Leftover soup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or frozen for up to 3 months.

In conclusion, tomato soup is a comforting and delicious dish that’s perfect for any occasion. With this recipe, you’ll be able to make a creamy and flavorful tomato soup that will warm you up on a chilly day. So why not cozy up with a bowl of homemade tomato soup?
