How to make Tomato Soup

When I say this soup is simple, I mean it. In a sauce pan, add in olive oil and sauté your onions, toss in some garlic too if you like it.

Once the onions are soft, add in the canned crushed tomatoes, broth or water, and seasonings. Give it a stir. Continue to heat over medium heat until warm enough to enjoy.

Gluten Free

There are many reasons I love this easy soup! One of them is because it is naturally gluten free. So many of those store bought soups contain hidden wheat or milk. This is just straight forward delicious tomato soup!


This recipe is vegan as long as you use vegetable broth or water in the soup instead of chicken broth. Even better with a dollop of vegan sour cream swirled in! YUM!


Store any uneaten soup in a container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat and enjoy!

This easy tomato soup is amazing with a grilled cheese. We also like to swirl in a dollop of sour cream into the center of the soup for some added creaminess. It really is delicious!
