    Easy tomato soup recipe: How to make tomato soup at home

    When you need a bit of comfort, a classic tomato soup recipe is sure to do the trick. Below, you’ll find a delicious yet simple recipe for homemade tomato soup that is both tasty and faster to make than a trip to the store. Read on to discover how to choose the right tomatoes and how to make tomato soup in just 7 easy steps.

    Homemade tomato soup: Choosing the right ingredients


    The joy of following a homemade tomato soup recipe is getting to choose all of the right ingredients. You’re going to want to use the very best tomatoes in your recipe. Here are some top tips for choosing your tomatoes.


    • To create a creamy soup: Plum or cherry tomatoes are dense and so are ideal if you’re trying to create your own creamy tomato soup recipe, as they don’t have as much water in them.
    • Experiment with density and flavour: Go for larger, heirloom tomatoes if you want to experiment with different densities and flavours!
    • Most importantly, make sure your tomatoes are ripe enough. Not sure how to check? Give your tomatoes a gentle squeeze. Unripe tomatoes will feel solid, whereas ripe ones will feel soft, without being mushy.

    How do you make tomato soup?

    This easy tomato soup recipe will cover the basics so that you can learn how to make a tomato soup from scratch, as well as with a soup maker. It’ll also show you what to add to your fresh tomato soup recipe in order to give it a special twist.

    1. Having warmed the olive oil in a large pan, add the onion and cook on a low heat until soft. This will take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.
    2. Stir in the tomato purée until all of the onion is coated.
    3. Now add the tomatoes and sprinkle in some salt and pepper.
    4. Stew the mixture for around 10 minutes, releasing all the tomato juices.
    5. Gently pour in the stock, stirring as you go.
    6. Reduce the heat and cook for around 25 minutes, with the lid on the pan.
    7. Finally, transfer your mixture into a blender.
    If you have a soup maker, such as this one from Philips, try this perfectly textured creamy tomato soup recipe, made to serve four people:
    1. Roast your tomatoes in an ovenproof dish at 200°C for 25 minutes.
    2. Place your roasted tomatoes, sugar, and veggie stock (and your chopped onions, sliced carrots, or crushed garlic – if you added them) into your soup maker.
    3. Select the ‘puree soup’ setting on your soup maker and leave it for 18 minutes.
    4. When the soup is ready, open the lid and pour into four bowls.


    And there you have it, soup that’s ready to enjoy at a moment’s notice.
