All you need is tomatoes

The main ingredient is tomatoes, if you want at least 3 portions, pick about 12 large ripe tomatoes.

I have mentioned that before and I will say it again, from green tomatoes or semi-green you will never get a good tomato soup. You have to buy the best tomatoes out there, all the flavor in this meal is coming from the tomatoes, and to ensure good results, make the right choice here.

How to choose the best tomatoes

They must be in season, so this soup is for the end of the summer when tomatoes are full of flavor, ripe and naturally sweet, this is not a winter recipe or at least the taste will not be quite there in the winter.

The ingredients you need to make 3 portions tomato soup

12 tomatoes

1 stem celery

1 onion

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp honey

salt to taste

How to make quick and easy tomato soup

Peal the tomatoes and cut in small peaces. Add in the pot with the onion and the celery, all tiny chopped and 2 tbsp of olive oil or any other oil by your choice and simmer for at least 40 minutes with the lid on.

Stir occasionally and at the end blend until smooth, I usually use hand blender, if too tick add some water, and season with salt and honey. This is it, the best tomato soup in the world ans is so quick and easy to make.

How to serve tomato soup

I usually serve it with basil, parsley, cooked quinoa, pasta and bread or crackers.

You can also add some meatballs, hot dogs, yellow cheese cubes right before you serve, sausages, a table spoon of cream or yogurt for a non vegetarian version.

If you want to spice it up you can add some cayenne pepper, garlic or chilly.

Good to know

This tomato soup recipe is low-fat and low calorie, perfect for dieting. When cold you can use it as a dip for veggies or chips. You can freeze the soup for up to 6 months, which means you can make a big batch in the summer when the tomatoes are at their peak and eat it in the winter. The best way to thaw the soup is over night in the fridge.

This is easy homemade tomato soup recipe and you won’t believe how good it is unless you try it.
