Easy Tomato Soup | Mini Van Dreams

Easy Tomato Soup

There is nothing better than a hot bowl of creamy tomato soup on a cold winter’s day – paired with a gooey, grilled cheese sandwich. It’s heaven. I was so tired of buying canned, condensed tomato soup – I wanted to try to make my own so I could make it healthier and sneak in some veggies in.

This recipe is so easy – it is literally four ingredients! I do caution you though – it is best when you buy the best ingredients you can afford. You can make this easy tomato soup with canned tomatoes – which is what I prefer, or with fresh tomatoes. If you use fresh tomatoes, I recommend coring and peeling them.

Ready for a great big bowl of deliciousness? Grab a grilled cheese and let’s eat!

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 large onion cut into wedges and separated

Notes

Using an immersion blender is best.  If you do not have one, a regular blender is fine – allow the soup to cool slightly and blend it in batches to prevent a boil over.
