Quick and Easy Home Made Tomato Soup Recipe

Add to a saucepan:

  • Several cups of water
  • One small can of Tomato Paste
  • 3 Bay Leaves
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • Several tomatoes cut in large or small chunks, or pureed in a blender

Simmer until tomatoes are soft.  You can then continue simmering the soup for hours, adding water as you go, for best results.  Or if you are in a hurry you can eat it sooner.


  • I like this soup with a spoonful of liquid yogurt on top
  • Or add shredded or broken-up cheese.  Use something that melts well in liquid, such as Gouda or Cheddar.
  • Croutons are another option.


  • Try adding other vegetables and herbs to the soup, such as a sliced onion, garlic, oregano, basil, etc.
  • You can also add some mini noodles (put them in toward the end so they don’t overcook), rice, barley, or small meatballs.

    This is simple soup, with no artificial ingredients or sugar! Another variation, for people who find the flavor just too tomato-ey: add soy sauce, A-1, worcestershire, teriyaki, toasted sesame oil, or any other strong flavoring to make a new flavor.

    Adding other vegetables would be great so as not to make the dish look boring.

    Tomato soup is my favorite. I like to have mine with homemade croutons.

    Nice recipe, I prefer to roast the tomatoes as it makes the soup more intense.

    Finding the perfect car isn’t always easy, whether its for your family, your fiancée or for fun! Whether you want a reliable runaround, a greener car with

    low emissions and low tax, or comfort for those long journeys.

    I recently read a book about super foods that are rich in antioxidants. Tomatoes are on the list. I am always looking for a new way to work them into my diet.

    This looks like a simple, fast, and delicious recipe. I love trying new soups, and this will definitely taste amazing. Thank you for posting.

    This is a very good and easy recipe. I made some tries before, for my own specialty soup, and I turned to making tomato soup as my forte.

    Tomatoes are really good for you because they are full of antioxidants. Most antioxidant rich foods become hard to find come winter, but the good thing about tomatoes is, in most places, you can find them year round and they are great in warm soup form!

    This looks pretty easy, I will give it a try! 🙂

    I don’t think this is that easy to prepare especially for those that can’t cook.
