Tomato soup is a hearty comfort food that is suitable for any season. Everyone needs to have a recipe for homemade tomato soup on hand.
Unlike many other tomato soup recipes, I have not used any double cream. This makes it ideal for vegans, but it still tastes just as delicious.
Ripe tomatoes are essential for making a delicious tomato soup. Stick to choosing tomatoes with a vivid red colour and a sweet and tart flavour.
The flavour of the soup is heavily influenced by the quality of the tomatoes, so choose the best ones.
Fresh herbs enhance the flavour and aroma of the tomato soup. To accentuate the tomato flavour, add some fresh basil, oregano, or thyme to the soup.
I always prefer to use fresh herbs, but you can use dried herbs as well. Fresh herbs will give the soup a more rich and aromatic flavour.
You may need to adjust the sugar quantity used. In this tomato soup recipe, sugar is used to balance out the tomato acidity and to bring out the tomato’s natural sweetness.
Tomatoes can vary in sweetness, and some may be more acidic than others. By adding sugar, it helps to balance the flavour and make the dish more well-rounded and appetising.
Tomatoes can vary in sweetness, and some may be more acidic than others. A modest bit of sugar helps to balance the flavour and make the soup more well-rounded and appetising.
However, sugar should be used sparingly because too much can dominate the other flavours in the soup.
Sugar can be replaced with alternative sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup or left out entirely for a more savoury tomato soup.
I like to blend the soup with an immersion blender until fully smooth. This gives the tomato soup a silky smoothness that makes it ideal for dipping bread in.
However, if you want to keep your tomato soup on the chunkier side then you can skip out the blending part!
Tomato soup is the definition of the ultimate comfort food recipe. Serve this delectable tomato soup with grilled cheese on the side.
