About Tomato Soup
Smooth, savory tomato soup is a delicious dish that is great to enjoy anytime of the year. The bold, bright flavor of fresh tomato is wonderful in the spring and summer, and the creamy richness of the broth makes it the perfect comfort food for a cold fall or winter night. There’s never a time I’m not craving a bowl!
Although this is an easy recipe to make, it does need to be just right to be a truly great tomato soup. Too thick or too thin and it will lose its magic.
Follow my simply step-by-step recipe for making the most luscious and flavorful tomato soup you’ve ever had!
This updated soup recipe is similar to the recipe which I had originally posted, but only the method of preparation has changed. There is no cornstarch added in this one and all the smoothness and creaminess comes from blending the onions, tomatoes and addition of cream.

How to Make Tomato Soup
You are just six basic steps and 30 minutes away from enjoying the smoothest, creamiest, most tangy and delicious homemade tomato soup.
Follow my detailed instructions below to learn how to make the best tomato soup tonight!
Step 1 – Cook Tomatoes
1. First, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a pot on medium-low heat. The butter should melt and slightly simmer, but not burn.
2. Next, add 2 bay leaves and fry them in the butter for a few seconds until lightly browned, but again, not burned.
If you live in India, you can also use 1 medium tej patta or 2 small tej patta instead of the bay leaves.
3. Add ½ teaspoon of finely chopped garlic and ⅓ cup of finely chopped onions to the pan, and stir.
4. Sauté and stir until the onions become translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes.
5. Now add the fresh chopped tomatoes (500 grams, or 6 to 7 medium tomatoes), and a hearty pinch of salt to taste.
6. Mix well.
7. Cover and simmer on a low to medium-low heat until the tomatoes soften, about 8 to 10 minutes
8. Stir occasionally and keep an eye on the consistency of the mixture. If the liquids dry up and the tomatoes begin to stick, then add a splash of water at a time and stir. But be sure to not add too much water or you’ll dilute the delicious flavors!
After the tomatoes have softened, remove from the heat and cool. Take out the bay leaves and discard.
Step 2 – Blending Tomatoes
9. Once the tomato mixture has cooled to a point that’s safe to work with, add it to a blender jar. You could also use an immersion blender.
10. Blend to a lovely smooth consistency to make the tomato soup puree.
11. You have the option of straining the puree through a strainer for an even smoother soup, but this step isn’t necessary.
13. If you do choose to strain the puree, move a spoon through it so that everything is strained except the seeds.
Step 4 – Simmering Soup Further
14. Pour the tomato puree back into the pot, and add 1 cup water. Stir and combine well. Depending on the consistency you prefer, you can add a little less or more water – taking care that the soup does not become very thick or watery and runny.
Note that instead of water you could also use homemade Vegetable Stock which will surely add more flavors to the soup.
15. Next, add 1 teaspoon of raw sugar or white sugar.
16. Mix the sugar in the tomato soup very well.
17. Simmer on low heat until the tomato soup becomes hot, but is not boiling.
18. Season with freshly crushed black pepper, and stir.
19. Turn off the heat and stir in, 1 to 2 tablespoons heavy cream, depending on desired richness.
20. Mix well, taste, and add more salt and pepper if needed.
Step 5 – Making Bread Croutons
21. When the cooked tomato mixture is cooling, you can make the bread croutons. Mix together ½ cup bread cubes, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 light pinch of salt and 1 to 2 pinches of freshly crushed black pepper in a baking tray. Toss to coat.
22. Bake in an oven preheated to 200 degrees Celsius (400 degrees Fahrenheit), for approximately 3 to 5 minutes.
Or, you can opt to toast the bread slices in a skillet until golden and then chop them into bite sized cubes.
23. I like to make one or two sides even darker for a bit more crunch.
Step 6 – Serving Tomato Soup
24. When you’re ready to enjoy, pour the hot tomato soup into bowls. Add the croutons directly on top of the soup, or serve on the side.
You can also garnish the tomato soup with a bit of freshly chopped parsley or coriander leaves (cilantro) or basil or mint sprigs.
This soup is great served fresh, but also keeps well in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
- Use fresh and very ripe red tomatoes. Avoid using tomatoes which are unripe, as they’ll likely have a sour taste.
- There is just the right balance of tanginess from the tomatoes and sweetness from the sugar and cream in this recipe. Be sure to follow the recipe precisely to make sure you don’t add too much of any one element and throw off this delicate ratio.
- You can skip the onions in the soup if you prefer, but I highly recommend that you add the garlic.
- Feel free to add celery stems or basil to the soup for even more flavor. For celery add 1 tablespoon of chopped celery with the tomatoes. To add basil, include 4 to 5 fresh basil leaves when the tomatoes are softened and cooked. Mix and simmer for a minute.
- For a slightly thinner soup, you could add a bit more of water or vegetable broth. But do not make the soup watery or runny as the flavors and taste would go off balance.
Yes sure. You can add 17 to 18 ounces of canned tomatoes.
Yes, you can do that. With canned tomato puree being very thick, you will need to add more water or stock to alter the consistency of the soup. Add about 2 to 2.25 cups of tomato puree.
Yes definitely. Add olive oil or a neutral flavored oil like sunflower oil.
Yes, you can skip the onions but I would suggest not to skip the garlic.
Milk can curdle due to the acidity of tomatoes, so I will not suggest replacing it with cream.
Yes, you could add them but the taste of the soup will be sweet.
Yes – add fresh malai after whipping or blending it in a small blender or mixer. Do not add it directly.
Dissolve 1 tablespoon milk powder in 2 tablespoons warm water to a smooth consistency. Add this mixture once your soup is ready and simmer for a couple of minutes.
Simply skip the bread croutons or make croutons with your favorite gluten-free bread.
Replace butter with olive oil or vegan butter. Substitute dairy cream with coconut cream or almond cream or cashew cream.

Hi Dassana ! I always follow your blog for delicious and tasty recipes and every time I catch them easily. Thanks for sharing this Tomato soup recipe. Thanks and keep sharing.
thank you kalpana. happy cooking.
dassana ji… I have a doubt…. what cream do you use? is it amul cream?
It is mentioned in the cream carton that it should be used within two days after opening… does it rot after two days from opening? how do you use it?
i use amul cream. it does not get spoiled if refrigerated and stays good for about a week, after opening. but i use it as soon as possible for gravies etc. i keep it on the top rack in the fridge.
Hi Dassana ji….I tried out this recipe…It was exactly restaurant style…My Sister was totally impressed… Thank you for such an awesome recipe…

Thanks a lot.
all the best mrunalini and glad your family liked the soup 🙂 take care and best of luck.
Mam is there any method to make cream at home plz give me ur valuable suggestions.
cream can be made at home. keep on collecting the malai from milk which has been boiled in the freezer in an air-tight box. when you get an enough amount that can be easily blended, then place the cream in a blender/mixer to which you have attached a whipper blade. then blend the chilled cream till smooth. keep in fridge and use as required in recipes. also the cream has to be chilled before you blend. so the night before, remove the malai container from the freezer and keep it in the fridge.
i just love ur recipes…very detailed…even a first timer can get it perfect…Gud luck
glad to know this raji and you are always welcome.
Can I use carrots n beetroot in this recipe?
yes you could add them however the taste would differ but it would be healthy 🙂
can i use fresh malai in place of cream?
yes you can add fresh malai, in small grinder jar, pulse the chilled malai till it becomes smooth and then add to the soup.
how to make homemade cream?i want to use fresh cream for gravies,soups etc
keep on collecting the malai from milk in a container and keep in the freezer. when you have a good amount of malai, then remove the container from the freezer and keep in the fridge overnight. next day, add the chilled malai in a mixer or blender jar. blend till you get a smooth cream. you just need to blend the malai till you get a smooth consistency. remove from the mixer jar and again store the malai in the fridge. use as required in the recipes.
thnks a lotttttttt dear
welcome pooja 🙂
Do u also use fresh cream or amul cream,i mean is there any difference????sorry for asking again and again
no problem pooja. i use amul cream. amul cream is 25% fat and fresh cream will be more in fat. so fresh cream is more rich and heavy.
i made this soup with homemade cream and really it turned out awesomeeeeeeeeeee .its the best tomato soup far better than restaurent soup.u r a great cook dear………….i love u…….mmmuahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
thankyou so much pooja 🙂 pleased to know this and god bless you.

welcome harshita. thanks for sharing positive feedback on recipes. i have my home science recipe for minestrone soup, which is a very good recipe. so i will add in few weeks.
Good and simple recipe if someone filtered through any home mesh before final garnishing there may be some wastages but give very good smooth homogenious soup to serve in bowl than garnish it
thanks for the suggestion. but if you blend the tomatoes very well, then no need to filter the soup.
Thank you will try the tomato soup tomorrow .

thanks for d procedure …wonderful taste!!!
i try it without onion.. its taste was awesm…
can Iuse blanded onion insteed of chopped onion …
no. the taste will change a lot.
So much good feedback! I am going to try this for today evening. I don’t have real red tomatoes now.can I add some Carrot or beetroot to get the colour instead?
thanks shanthi. you can but the taste will be change due to the sweetness of the carrots and beeroots. but no issues. you try. there is a similar recipe i have posted on the blog – https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/carrot-tomato-soup/
It actually tasted like restaurant, a must try recipe. It was damn tasty i added dry kasoori leaves instead of coriander leaves…. Loved d recipe.
thanks prachiica for the positive feedback.
Hi…can I boil the onion along with the tomatoes.
no. will give a different taste.
It is wonderful .
can i make this without using the cream? will there be any change in the taste?
cream gives a nice taste and balances the tanginess of the tomatoes. i would then suggest you to add honey instead of sugar in this recipe. you can add honey as per your choice taking care that the balance of sweetness and tanginess is there.
I am planning to make the soup tonight in dinner.. What is unrefined cane sugar..can we use normal sugar??
you can use normal sugar.
Really good crop of tomatoes this year and we had pulped them to freeze for the winter. I had never tried making my own tomato soup and when I decided to give it a go I found this recipe and had to try it. Outstanding, we love it and so easy too.
thanks paul. glad to know that you liked the tomato soup.
thnx to share restaurant style tomato soup recipe,i like this soup.
Hey, I’m very exited to try this recipe. But I have one question.
When you say CREAM, what kind of cream do you refer to?
Could you be more specific please?
I’m brazilian, and i’m not used to the vocabulary of cooking.
the cream refers to dairy cream. this is not whipping cream. just regular milk cream which is added in pasta or soups or veggie recipes. you can use ready available cream which has 20% to 30% fat. this link will be helpful – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cream
Wow so INVITING soup..one of my fav.s…hav tried many times..but never get dat restaurant taste…wil giv dis one a shot..fingers crossed..:) Happy New year dear
thanks rads. wishing happy new year to you and your family.
This sounds delicious and I like that there is very little cream in it! Can I used canned or boxed tomatoes in this recipe? Thank you …
you can use canned tomatoes. however fresh tomatoes have a much better taste and flavor than canned ones. but if there is no option you can go for canned tomatoes. you may need to adjust the proportions of sugar, water and cream accordingly.
Because this recipe is very good, I want to share this with my country’s people. May I translate this recipe into Korean and post the translated recipe on my blog? Of course, I will inform that this recipe is yours and link your blog. I will wait for your answer. If you don’t want, I won’t post it. Thank you.
thanks. yes, please do so. i give you the permission to translate and share the recipe provided you give the credit to the source.
