Easy Tomato Soup Recipe

Easy Soup Tomatoes

This tomato soup recipe is simple to make and with a glut of tomatoes at the end of the season it is one way of using them up.

In fact, I make it so much that everyone is glad when the tomato season is over.  Plus, tomatoes are classed as a super food and very good for you.

Note: If you do not have fresh tomatoes tins ones work just as well, no need to sieve these.

Serves 4


  • 2 onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 kg ripe tomatoes
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 100 ml single cream to finish


  • Wash and chop the tomatoes.
  • Peel and finely chop the onions and garlic cloves.
  • Heat the oil in a large sauce pan.
  • Add the finely chopped onion and cook until soft, toss in the garlic and cook for a few minutes. Then add the chopped tomatoes, vegetable stock, caster sugar and balsamic vinegar and bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Blend the soup and then sieve to remove the seeds and skin.
  • Return the soup to the pan, add the cream, season with salt and pepper, slowly re-heat, don’t let it boil, and serve in warm soup bowls or mugs with freshly baked bread. You can garnish with a few shredded basil leaves.
