Tomato Soup

Growing up, this was my middle daughter’s favorite soup. Serve with grilled cheese on gluten-free bread. So yummy.

Easy Soup


  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 large tomatoes chopped – if you do not have fresh tomatoes you can use 2 14.5 ounce cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons dried basil or 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 3 cups GF chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (omit or use almond milk for dairy-free)


1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-low heat. Sauté the onions and carrots until tender, about 10 minutes.
2. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
3. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, basil, chicken broth, salt, and pepper and stir well.
4. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until the tomatoes are very tender.
5. Process in a food processor to the desired consistency and return to the pot.
6. Add the cream, reheat as needed, and serve. (omit cream or add a splash of almond milk for a dairy-free soup)
