Simple Tomato Soup

Simple tomato soup, deliciously creamy and a great Vegan soup as the creaminess comes from the addition of potato, rather than by adding dairy. A soup reminiscent of a certain red tin!

Our easy tomato soup is simple to make and we used the Froothie Evolve to see if we could mimic Heinz tomato soup. The high speed blender results in a super smooth soup. To ensure the recipe is suitable for vegans, potato was used for texture and creaminess, in place of any dairy.

Tomato soup is comfort food, and the only tin of soup that our families will eat. When we are ill we all look to soup to make us feel better. The benefit of this soup is that it does not have a lengthy cooking time. Even if feeling a little under the weather, you can cook this soup and have something warming and nutritious to eat.

How to make simple tomato soup

Can I adapt the recipe?

This simple tomato soup is easy to adapt. To bulk it out a little add some red lentils or any other vegetables during the cook. Peppers and courgettes would both work with this soup. You can also add some herbs, like basil, parsley or tarragon, which all compliment the tomato flavour.

Can I freeze tomato soup?

This soup is easy to double up for batch cooking. Eat some now and save some for another day. Once cooked, allow the soup to cool completely and place in a suitable container with a tight-fitting lid before placing in the freezer.

Do I need to use the Froothie Evolve or similar high speed blender?

This recipe can be made both using a blender, and in a saucepan on the stove. We used the Froothie Evolve high speed blender for this recipe as we were gifted the machine to fully test and review. However, this is a recipe can be made in a saucepan and we have provided instructions for both methods in the recipe card. Therefore, no requirement to go out and buy any special equipment.

Love your potato addition to make it extra creamy. Great idea. I'm finding the Froothie Evolve helps enormously too. Just love the silky mouth feel it produces. I thought I might be over my soup craze, but now I've seen this, I'm not so sure.

That looks very like that particular soup in a red can. I am totally craving this after seeing it and it's so easy too!

Thank you Jacqueline, it's one of our favourite soups and we are wondering why it's taken so long to get it onto our blog. The Froothie does give it a lovely smooth texture. Lesley x

OOOh delish. I'd never have thought about putting a potato into a tomato soup but I can see how it would make absolute sense!

Thank you Chloe, I often use a potato to thicken soups and add a creaminess. I find thickening with flour can make it too gloopy at times. Lesley
