How To Make The Easiest Roasted Tomato Soup From Scratch

(full printable recipe at the end of this post)

This roasted tomato soup is typically a lazy Sunday kind of meal for our family because it’s so easy to throw together. Just see for yourself how easy it is to throw together one of my favorite recipes! 

To start you’ll heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large pot or dutch oven. Once the oil is hot, add the onion and carrots and sauté until tender. Next, you will reduce the heat to medium, stir in garlic, and add the remaining ingredients. Stir everything until combined and let simmer over low heat.

Lastly, remove the bay leaf and use an immersion blender to blend the soup to your desired consistency. Ladle warm soup into bowls and enjoy.

What Is An Immersion Blender? 

An immersion blender, also known as a stick blender, is a simple handheld kitchen tool perfect for easily blending and smoothing recipes without having to remove them from the original pot. Most commonly used for smoothing out soups, like this roasted tomato soup and removing lumps from your mashed potatoes. 

Do I Have To Use An Immersion Blender?

While an immersion blender helps this roasted tomato soup recipe come together in a flash, you don’t have to scrap the whole recipe just because you don’t have one. You can always use a regular blender by adding just a couple of extra steps. 

If you don’t have an immersion blender, let the soup cool to room temperature, then carefully transfer to a blender and blend. Return to pot and heat until warm.

Tips For Making The Best Roasted Tomato Soup

  • Make sure you get fire-roasted tomatoes. The canned fire-roasted tomatoes will give you that nice roasted flavor profile without actually having to roast any fresh tomatoes in the oven 
  • Feel free to adjust the cream to your liking. Personally I love the addition of a little cream in my tomato soup, but you can always leave it out or even add a little more depending on your preferences. 
  • I used canned tomatoes to allow this recipe to easily be made any time of the year, but if you would like to use fresh tomatoes here is a great resource for how to roast tomatoes

What To Serve With Roasted Tomato Soup

We all know there are a few things that are almost mandatory to be paired with any roasted tomato soup… homemade croutons, and grilled cheese on the side, for dipping.

If you’ve never dipped a grilled cheese in your tomato soup, let me tell you now, you’re missing out! It’s up there with the same delicacy that is dipping french fries in a chocolate milkshake. 

If gilled cheese and croutons aren’t your cup of tea, you can also serve this tomato soup recipe with some homemade bread, like my favorite No-Knead Dutch Oven Bread

How Do I Store Homemade Roasted Tomato Soup?

This homemade tomato soup can be stored either in the refrigerator or the freezer. For short term storing, simply spoon your completely cooled soup into an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

To store for a longer period of time you can take the airtight container of cooled soup and store in the freezer for up to three months.
