How do you make tomato soup?
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.
Plum or cherry tomatoes are dense – these are great if you’re trying to create your own creamy tomato soup recipe, as they don’t have as much water in them. Go for larger, heirloom tomatoes if you want to experiment with different densities and flavors!
But most importantly, you’ve got to make sure they’re ripe enough for your fresh tomato soup recipe. Give your tomatoes a gentle squeeze. Unripe tomatoes will feel solid, whereas ripe ones will feel soft, without being mushy.
To make tomato soup from scratch, you will need:
2 tbsp. olive oil
3 cups of quartered tomatoes
2 cups of vegetable stock
1 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. tomato purée
1 medium onion, peeled and diced
Salt and pepper, to taste
And if you feel like putting a twist on your recipe, simply add some of these extra ingredients:
Roast your tomatoes in an ovenproof dish at 400°F for 25 minutes.
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.
Select the ‘puree soup’ setting on your soup maker and leave it for 18 minutes.
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. Wondering ‘how do you make tomato soup even more comforting?’ It’s simple – pair it with a grilled cheese sandwich to dip in your soup. Delicious.
