I do. I use boxed (not canned) tomatoes. Saute one or two onions in olive oil in a Dutch oven until soft, add two boxes strained tomatoes and a TBSP of tomato paste. Cook on medium until beginning to carmelize. Add strained tomato juice and vegetable broth. Blend in the pot with an immersion blender until smooth. Add half & half and season as desired. There are other recipes, but this is the one I make on a regular basis. It makes quite a bit, so I have the leftovers for lunch throughout the week.

I made up my own after searching online & finding so many recipes with sugar a something sweet in them. Don't want that. That's the reason I can't find any canned tomato soups to try....they all have sugar.

I used fresh tomatoes, blanched them, removed the skins, then chopped them up and let them simmer in a pot. I added onions, garlic, sea salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, basil and chicken broth. Then after is simmered a while I added some half & half. I didn't mind the seeds and I thought using a blender (don't have an immersion one) would just make one more thing I'd have to clean. I don't have a food processor.

I love pairing carrots with tomatoes, it naturally tones down the acidity without having to use sugar or sweeteners. I have to try and remember to chop up a carrot to roast alongside the tomatoes/onions.

I make a great tomato soup using...
  • 28oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 32oz vegetable broth
  • two cups of V8 juice
  • fresh thyme
  • fresh basil
  • fresh parsley
Optional ingredients...
  • sugar
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • sauteed onions
  • heavy cream
Mix ingredients in pan, bring to a boil, simmer for one - two hours (add cream at the end).
You can hit it with an immersion blender if you want to make it smoother.

Serve with that age-old favorite, grilled-cheese, or top with croutons.

GiGi, was glad to see you made the soup and liked it!

This soup is a cross between Progresso's Hearty Tomato Soup, and their Tomato Basil Soup.
Two soups of which I really like! I now can enjoy both soups, all wrapped in one recipe.
