I’m in love with homemade soup, especially during these cold winter months.
Nothing warms you from the inside out quite like homemade soup! And this Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe hits all the points on my checklist: easy, homemade, delicious and a breeze to mix up.
An easy recipe like this is so handy, especially during the school year as I homeschool my children and sometimes you need some simple recipes for lunch! Life gets busy with my kiddos and all, but I still want to feed them well and preferably with homemade food. Simple homemade food helps me to strike that balance of not going crazy but still accomplishing my goal. You mommas know what that’s like, right?
I’m a very visual person, so I’m always turning to YouTube to learn new techniques and skills, which is why it’s so important to me that we make cooking tutorials like this one. If this video was helpful to you, consider checking out our YouTube channel for more ideas! And giving it a thumbs up and comment is the kind of feedback that encourages us to keep producing and creating these videos for Y’all. Thank you so very much!
You can find the printable recipe below.
Also, you could always make this recipe with fresh tomatoes in the summer by merely weighing 30 oz of fresh tomatoes and blending them per the instructions below. I love my Vitamix Blender! Adapt this recipe and improvise. You could sauté fresh garlic in the butter before adding the flour, or fresh basil, or whatever strikes your culinary fancy. That’s part of the fun of cooking, and you’re in charge so get creative if that’s your thing.
Creamy Tomato Soup
- 2 cans of diced or whole Tomatoes 15 oz. cans
- 1/4 cup of Butter
- 1/2 cup Flour
- 2-4 cups Milk
- Salt & Pepper
In a blender or food processor, pour the two cans of tomatoes and blend until smooth. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour whisking until smooth, then slowly add half of the milk whisking until smooth, add the rest of the milk and continue to whisk over medium/high heat until it thickens. Add the blended tomatoes and whisk to combine, letting it heat and thicken. If it’s too thick at this point, thin it with more milk. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
