Home Made Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese
Easy Homemade Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese: an easy recipe for homemade tomato soup, your kids will love. Perfect with a grilled cheese.
The weather is turning colder now. There’s definitely a chill in the air, and on a cold night this is the perfect cozy dinner. I have never made tomato soup before, but had pleasant memories of the red and white can. I might have thought it would be difficult to make or time consuming, but this recipe is so simple.
If you’re craving soup in the summer, you could make this with juicy, red, ripe tomatoes from your garden. But this time of year, it’s best just to use to canned. They were picked at their peak and all that yummy goodness of perfectly ripe tomatoes is preserved for you. And, it also makes this homemade tomato soup super easy to put together. I read that the baking soda keeps the milk from curdling, and it certainly worked. I also used my new immersion blender that my sweet husband picked up for me a little while ago to make the roasted garlic and potato soup. It worked great, really great, and I think this might be the beginning of soup making winter for me.

The perfect accompaniment to a hot bowl of home made tomato soup? A grilled cheese. I used fresh, crusty white bread, soft butter, marble and Havarti cheese. It didn’t disappoint.

I’m going to make some of this with my frozen roma tomatoes and basil harvested from the summer season….really easy with the handblender, eh!!!
Yum! I am going to make this for my lunches this week. I have pinned it on our 4Mothers1Blog board for others to drool over too. Beautiful pictures, btw!
I really don’t like tomatoes, but for some reason it’s my favourite soup! I’m going to have to try this recipe one day, especially with the side of grilled cheese 😀
I was just making this and I see that the measurement for baking soda is not complete. A 1/4 what? of baking soda.
So sorry Beth-Anne a 1/4 tsp. of baking soda, I’ll fix the recipe. Thanks for letting me know, hope it still worked out for you.
That’s what I guessed. Very yummy! I made more than enough so I have easy lunches this week. Thanks for the share!
Hey – thanks for the inspiration – currently making a vegan version!
When you say canned tomatoes…does it matter if it is whole peeled tomatoes or diced tomatoes?
Either whole or diced tomatoes should work -don’t drain, add in the whole can of either.
Good luck with it,
