Soup of the Week: Simple Tomato Soup

One of my favorite bloggers, angry chicken, posted her recipe for tomato soup and I altered it slightly. It was super easy, tasty, healthy and comforting.

Simple Tomato Soup

2 T olive oil
1 yellow onion diced
3 cloves garlic diced
1 28 oz. can whole tomatoes (I used Safeway Organic brand.)
1 13 oz. can tomato sauce (I used Safeway Organic brand.)
herbs: basil, thyme, oregano (whatever you have)
milk (I used organic whole milk)
honey (optional)

  1. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until onions are soft and transparent.
  2. Add tomatoes with juice and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil. Turn to low, cover and simmer for 20-45 minutes.
  3. Puree in blender or food processor.
  4. Add milk as desired. I like my soup to be a creamy tomato color, so added about a cup.
  5. Add salt, pepper, herbs and honey. (I added about a teaspoon of honey, just to see if I liked it. I couldn't really tell it was there.)


  1. That sounds easy and delicious! I will make that this week. And maybe put some stove-popped popcorn on as garnish. Yum . . .

  2. POPCORN! That sounds exciting. I've never tried that. I had it with pears and cheese from the farmers market.

  3. Ooh, I think I'll try that. I just did a good broccoli cheese soup. This is definitely soup season!
