Easy Creamy Tomato Soup
April 22, 2019 9 Comments
Easy creamy tomato soup is one of my personal favorites especially when paired with a salad or grilled cheese sandwich.
You can buy cans of cream of tomato, but I like to whip some up myself. The canned version tends to have more sodium than I like and it tastes a bit like the inside of a can.
For some reason that I cannot fathom, mixing a puree of canned tomatoes and milk makes a soup that does not taste tinny at all. It is quite good.
I love using vegetables (or in this case a fruit) to make soup like my Vitamix zucchini soup or my low carb chicken vegetable soup.
This soup is by far the easiest one I have ever made. All you do is puree tomatoes in a blender and add milk. If you have tomato puree, check if it is super smooth. You don’t even need to blend it if the canned puree is the right consistency.
I heat this up and taste for salt. It is amazing how a little bit of salt makes a flavor difference with tomatoes.
I used to drive around with a salt shaker in my car waiting for perfect summer tomatoes a roadside stands. You buy it, slice it, and eat it with a dash of salt for the perfect snack. There isn’t anything like a fresh, ripe tomato right off the vine.
Eat this soup instead of going to Panera. My daughter loves their cream of tomato soup and when I made her this recipe, she said it was just as good (and I am sure I saved a lot of money).
If you can find really nice imported Italian tomatoes (such as the ones in the photo), I find that they have the best flavor.
