Delicious & Easy Tomato Soup

I adore homemade tomato soup!  Not the creamy kind. I love tomato soup with grilled cheese/caramelized onion sandwiches – so no cream necessary.  What a perfect dinner.

All you need to make this is an immersion blender (or a regular one if you don’t mind a huge mess) and easy-to-find ingredients you most likely have in your pantry.

Easy Tomato Soup

Serves 4



  • 28 oz can of diced peeled tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken stock (I make mine with Better Than Bouillon)
  • 1 large yellow onion, coarsely chopped since you blend it later on 
  • ½ stick butter
  • 1 heaping tsp dried basil (1 Tbsp fresh if you have it in the summer)
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar (tomato + a little sugar makes everything better)
  • Black pepper to taste.  
  • Salt to taste, although I need zero or only a tiny bit

Dump everything together in a 4-quart pot.  Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium low and cover.  Stir occasionally and cook for 20 minutes until the onion is soft.

Remove from the heat for a few minutes  Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth and creamy.  Season with more salt and pepper if desired.
