Homemade Tomato Soup Recipe Using Garden Fresh Tomatoes

When your garden is overflowing with fresh tomatoes, this is the soup to make. Not only does this recipe showcase the sweet flavor of fresh tomatoes beautifully, it is also extremely versatile. You can make this soup with any fresh tomatoes you have, from cherry tomatoes to beefsteak tomatoes. By pureeing the soup, you don't need to seed or peel the tomatoes - everything just gets mixed in the blender - and you don't need any cream either.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups chopped fresh tomatoes (any kind)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 quart vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 3-4 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1-3 tsp. sugar
  • chopped fresh basil (for garnish)

Preparation:

  1. Place tomatoes, onions, garlic and broth in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium, and let simmer 20 minutes until the tomatoes burst and the onions and garlic are soft. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Transfer mixture in batches to a blender, and puree until smooth (I use my Vita-Mix Blender (compare prices), which I love, but it is pricey.)

  3. Heat butter in another large soup pot over medium heat. Add flour, whisking until mixture turns golden brown. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Whisk the pureed tomato soup into butter-flour roux. Stir balsamic vinegar and sugar into the soup. Heat until tomato soup thickens. Taste, and adjust seasonings (add more salt, pepper, vinegar and/or sugar, as needed).

  5. Ladle the soup into bowls, and serve, garnished with chopped fresh basil. Or let the soup cool completely, and transfer to freezer-safe containers to freeze.

Tomato Soup from scratch, Member Cayman.Terry

First time I have ever made Tomato soup, I have always liked it but only ever had ""Cambells"" since a kid. Well to my surprise this was delicious I am impressed with it. I had extra tomatos today and needed to do something with them. Don't know if it changed the recipe too much but I added a stalk of celery as well. I certainly could make a great Lobster Bisk with this. Thank you Hard to give five (5) stars to anything
