Perfect for lunch with a grilled cheese for dunking. This recipe was inspired by a few three ingredient tomato soup recipes I saw online. I used an entire #10 can of whole tomatoes that I purchased at Costco. With the addition of a few vegetables, butter and a blender, this meal was inexpensive and so easy. I will add fresh basil the next time I make it.
Source: This site was probably the basis for my soup, with some changes.
All the prices are approximate, except for the can of tomatoes. I generally have all the other items on hand.
I chopped all my veggies in big pieces because I knew my blender could handle it. If you have an older blender, you may want to start with small pieces. You could also make a chunky version which would be just as delicious.
The butter is what makes the soup so creamy but if you are avoiding it, any cooking oil would work instead. I would only use a few tablespoons though. A non dairy milk substitute at the end might work to make it creamy.
That looks good. We will be having fresh tomatoes in our garden in a few weeks. When they are ready to pick, I'm going to try making this soup with the home grown tomatoes.
I can imagine eating this tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich!
It will be even better with fresh tomatoes. I've got a couple more weeks before I see much out of my garden. I just started getting my first zucchini and tomato blossoms.
That is my son's favorite!
