Fresh Garden Tomato Soup Recipe
Like it? Rate it!
This is a healthy, very low-calorie meal that is still delicious and filling. It uses fresh vegetables for the best flavor and nutrition, and can easy be made vegetarian by simply substituting vegetable stock for the chicken stock.
Traditionally served with toasted french bread or grilled cheese sandwiches.
I hope you enjoy it!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 carrot, sliced
- 1 medium zucchini, sliced
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 6 cups tomatoes, chopped
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- pinch cloves
- Chop onions and saute them in olive oil
- While the onions are cooking, slice all your other veggies and get your spices and chicken stock ready
- Add veggies and stock and simmer for 35 minutes
- Blend the whole mix into a smooth, creamy soup
Step 1 - Gather your ingredients
Make sure you have all the ingredients ready [the carrot escaped this photo]. Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil into a pot, chop up the onions, and start them sauteing.
Step 2 - Cook the onions and prepare the other vegetables
Cook the onions until they start to go soft. Make sure to stir fairly often, you don't want them to burn. While they're cooking, chop up all the other vegetables and get them ready.
Step 3 - Cook it all
Dump all your veggies into the pot, and add the spices and chicken stock. Bring it to a simmer and let it simmer 35 minutes with a lid on. Be sure to stir once in a while to keep it from sticking.
In 35 minutes, run it through a kitchen blender until it has a nice smooth texture, pour into bowls and serve hot.
Serve and enjoy!
Traditionally, tomato soup is served alongside grilled cheese sandwiches and the flavors complement each other nicely. A lighter version, which I prefer, involves just toasted French bread to dip in the soup.
