FAQ and Tips on This Tomato Soup Recipe

Can I run the tomatoes through a blender or extractor?

Yes. It’s easiest with something that does extraction, like for smoothies or other strong food processor. We use our large Nutri-bullet with about 2-3 short pulses.

Can I use canned tomatoes instead?

Absolutely Yes! Use 1 can (14.5 ozs.) for every 2 fresh tomatoes being replaced.

Can I make this without tomatoes?

Yes; just add in 1-1/2 cups (for every 2 tomatoes being replaced) of the tomato juice or V-8 to compensate.

What are some other additives I can use in this recipe?

You can add in some finely diced celery and carrots to cook along with the onions. However, the celery will take longer to soften and the carrots will take even longer than that. So, you might be adding about 15 or more minutes to cooking time.

And, you can add some homemade croutons from the oven onto this tomato soup.

There are a ton of preferences. Here are some very popular ones:

  • Crackers, Crostini Garlic, or Bread, on the side.
  • Grilled cheese sandwiches is a classic.
  • Another good side item is a simple lettuce salad.

For something heavier but not bulky for a meal, you can consider a stew recipe such as this one. Or, for a change of pace for soups, try this Black Beans Soup homemade recipe.
