Fire-Roasted Tomato Soup

This quick and easy Fire-Roasted Tomato Soup is one of our favorite comfort foods of all time! It’s great the first day and even better the next so feel free to double the recipe and save some for later too.

Fire Roasted Tomato Soup

There are, to date, a zillion ways to make classic tomato soup.

Let’s up it to a zillion and one, shall we?

Fire-Roasted Tomato Soup

Hellooooo comfort food! My husband and I are LOVING this tasty tomato soup!

I was super bummed when I realized I was out of fresh basil recently but realized I could still whip up a bowl of tomato soup that tasted FANTASTIC, even with the dried stuff! To date, I probably make this soup with fresh basil as often as I make it without… and it totally hits the spot on a cold day! So whether you have fresh or dried basil handy, you’ve GOT to make it!

As written this soup is vegan, low-carb, paleo, gluten-free, and dairy-free.

Craving cheese? Feel free to add some grated parmesan or a swirl of cream. We love our fire-roasted tomato soup paired with an easy peasy grilled cheese croissant sandwich and it’s also great with a cheesy quesadilla dunked in it as well. It’s unconventional, but crazy good!

Ingredients

  • 1 Vidalia onion diced
  • 2-3 large carrots chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 28 oz fire-roasted diced or crushed tomatoes
  • 1-2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth (or chicken broth if t-rex)
  • 1-2 tsp sugar (optional; skip if low-carb/whole30)
  • 1 TBSP tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 1/2 tsp dried basil (plus extra to garnish)
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Saute onions and carrots in 2 TBSP olive oil until tender. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant.

  2. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add tomato paste and cook until toasted, approx. 1 minute.

  4. Next, add tomatoes and broth and let simmer for 25 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and the flavors have melded together. For a thicker soup, try it with just 1 cup of broth. Want a thinner tomato soup? Add 2 cups plus any extra to taste.

  5. Taste for seasoning and add more salt, pepper, and the sugar, if needed.
  6. Add basil, and puree using a hand held immersion blender or food processor until smooth.
  7. Serve with a sprinkle of fresh basil on top.

Looking for a sinfully delicious sandwich to pair with the soup?

Slice a bakery croissant in half, add 3 slices of your favorite cheese and press on a panini maker (or grill in a pan!) until golden and melted. It’s beyond amazing. A sauteed veggie and cheese panini would also be divine counterpart as would one of my easy cheesy Vegan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.
