Don’t let this title fool you! Before you think you need garden fresh tomatoes to make this garden fresh tomato soup, allow me to set the record straight. You can totally use canned or jarred tomatoes instead to make this delicious soup. Garden fresh just puts it over the top incredible!
After trying a lot of tomato soup recipes from scratch, all fell flat. I finally did my own thing, and this soup was born. This recipe is very far off from the original and would only cause confusion to share, otherwise I would site it. This recipe has loads of garlic, the only dairy in it is cheese and butter, and it’s enough to feed a large crowd or freeze for later!
Get the Most Out of Garden Fresh Tomato Soup
Our favorite way to enjoy this garden fresh tomato soup is with fresh einkorn sourdough grilled cheese sandwiches using our favorite raw cheese. It’s also great with freshly made parmesan croutons, too. Just like our family’s favorite Green Soup, this recipe is a regular staple in our dinner rotation.
Blending this soup in a good blender is the trick to getting a smooth and thick end result. The freshly grated parmesan cheese gives it all the creaminess it needs, but feel free to add some heavy cream if you prefer.
Canned or Jarred is Okay, Too!
Remember, you don’t have to have a garden to make this soup! You could even snag some fresh heirloom tomatoes and basil from your local farmer’s market. The grocery store is also an option. However, supporting local farmers lessens our carbon footprint and supports food growers right at the source. I’m all about that!
I hope your family enjoys this garden fresh tomato soup just as much as mine does! It’s right up there with Green Soup in our house!
