Fresh Tomato Soup Recipe is one of my all-time favorite soup recipes. A comforting soup that is slightly tangy is perfect for chilly days. Super easy to make. The smell will tempt you when cooking.
If you are a fan of soup no matter what the temperature is, you need to try this fresh tomato soup recipe in summer when tomatoes are in season. I always have some summer tomatoes in the freezer or preserved in jars to make a huge batch of this soup when the weather changes. A great way to feel summer thanks to a bowl of soup. It becomes even more comforting when you serve it with croutons on the top.
This tomato soup recipe is a basic one. Whenever I make this soup, I always think that basic recipes that we learn from our moms or grandmas are always the best. This is an inexpensive family meal that you can make with simple ingredients and with almost no effort.
It’s up to you to make changes on this basic tomato soup recipe. I sprinkle a little dried mint (my favorite spice!) on the soup because I use it in almost every soup recipe, but you can use a different spice or just leave it out if you prefer so. I know basil and (either fresh or dried) gives a wonderful flavor to this soup as well.Print
