Best Ever Tomato Soup Recipe #recipes #soups

Winter is soup season.

And believe it or not, our family loves soup season. The reason is that we have created some unique, flavorful soups that are exciting to eat. No canned soup at our house!

This Tomato Soup Recipe is one of our favorites. It is full of flavor, creamy, and delicious. Besides being full of lots of hidden veggies, is has a secret ingredient - BACON!  As we tell our kids - everything in moderation.

This is just one of all recipes I've shared on this blog of our family tested recipes!

How to Make the best ever tomato soup

the secret ingredient is a couple slices of bacon

In 2 TAB olive oil over medium heat cook cut up 4 slices of bacon. This part is optional, but the bacon adds a really great dimension to the flavor.

add some healthy root veggies

Chop up 3 stalks celery, 3 carrots, 3 cloves garlic, and 1 onion. Add to the bacon and cook until it is all mostly tender.

use food processor to make veggies into a paste

Scoop all the veggies from the pot in to a blender and mix until smooth.  Now mix 28 oz (about 4 cups) of fire roasted tomatoes. You don’t want them completely smooth.

Note: If you are using garden fresh tomatoes here is how you fire roast tomatoes.

add broth

In large saucepan or stock pot add 1 quart chicken broth, blended veggies, and tomatoes.

season it just right

Add 1 teas oregano, salt & pepper, 1 teas sugar, 1/2 teas crushed red peppers. Add a splash of cream or whole milk.


Simmer 15 minutes or longer to blend flavors.

The soup is just thick enough to be filling. Is filled with lots of good for you veggies. And it has such an incredible flavor don’t be surprised if everyone asks for seconds….. or thirds!

I always get tons of complements on this soup! It is a hit at our house. I hope this yummy, good for you, soup is a hit at yours too!
