This is our favorite and only tomato soup we’ll eat. I LOVE tomatoes but my family only likes them when they’re cooked in things like pizza sauce or spaghetti. This however, they all get excited about when I make it. It’s SUPER easy, and no sugar!!!

First you’ll need tomatoes.  This recipe is adjustable to make as much or as little as you like.

You’ll need 12 medium tomatoes

You can use Roma tomatoes, regular tomatoes, or a mixture of both.  If you use Roma tomatoes you will probably want to add more.  In these photos I used a mix and I used about 20 tomatoes as most of them were Roma’s from my garden.

Cut these tomatoes in 1/2 and place in a single layer on a cookie sheet or two (or a pan of your choice).

Drizzle with olive oil (about 2-3 tablespoons)

Add salt and pepper to taste (I sprinkle salt & pepper over all the tomatoes)

Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 25 minutes.

Place the tomatoes in a blender and add fresh basil leaves.  Add as many or as few as you like.  The more you add, the stronger the basil flavor.

Serve immediately.  If it needs a little warm up cook it in a saucepan or place in a crock-pot to keep the flavor growing and serve later.

We serve with fresh Parmesan on top.  Enjoy!

  • Oh, that sounds so good! We just used the last of our homegrown tomatoes, so I’m saving this for next season. I’m one of those people who only likes fresh homegrown tomatoes. I only buy grocery store tomatoes for my husband. He likes them no matter where they come from.

    • Thank you Linda. You are right, homegrown ones are the most delicious! We also make this in the summer with those fresh tomatoes and freeze a few batches so we can have it in the winter time with grilled cheese sandwiches. 🙂

      • I just revisited this recipe as I was thinking of summer. I can hardly wait until August when I can get fresh tomatoes for home canning. We ran out already, so I have to do more next year. As I was reading the comments about only liking cooked tomatoes, it dawned on me that cooking tomatoes actually increases their lycopene which is extremely good for your heart. While cooking did decrease the vitamin C by 29%, it also raised the lycopene by 164%! So cook up some tomatoes as a way to keep your heart healthy.

  • Mmmm…. this looks so good, my friend! What time shall I come over for supper? hehehe 🙂 I am like your family and I don’t care for tomatoes unless they are cooked. I love a good tomato soup and this looks like the perfect recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    • I totally get it Trudy. I love tomatoes but never liked tomato soup – mostly because cans put too much sugar in them. I really enjoy this recipe and I hope your husband loves it too 🙂

  • That sounds so good and so easy! Pinned.
