Simple Tomato Soup

Simple Grain Free Dairy Free Tomato Soup

Today, it is 3 degrees (F) outside, which makes it undoubtedly soup weather at our house. Tomato soup was one of my favorite soups before switching to a real food diet. Now, I don’t think I could eat the canned stuff if I tried, but this homemade version is wonderful.

This recipe is so quick to make, and we’ve often added pieces of chopped leftover chicken for a really fast meal. This recipe is grain free and dairy free, but tomatoes are nightshades, so this recipe might not be the best for those struggling with autoimmune issues.

  1. Oh my goodness, you’re right! This IS simple! So yummy looking too, perfect for this cold weather. (it’s even cold down here in Miami!! at least by our standards 🙂 )

  2. Ohhhh girlfriend… making this this week! Love finding recipes I already have all the ingredients for!

  3. Would canned coconut milk work?

  4. I love tomato soup. For me a pinch of Garam Masala makes it extra rich tasting. Thanks for the recipe

  5. Looks yummy! But the link to your tomato paste leads to the coconut oil instead. Please fix it so I can see which tomato paste you use. Thanks!

    • I know, it did for me too, but they DO carry tomato products: keep looking on their website for organic foods, you’ll find it.

      • Thanks!

  6. This is much like my tomato soup recipe and tomato soup is one of my favorites. I add milk or cream to mine. Yum.

  7. I just whipped up a double batch of this because the recipe looked so simple and I thought it would be great for having as lunch through the week. OH MY! This is the best tomato soup I’ve ever had – and I love tomato soup! Thanks for such a great, simple recipe. I’ll definitely be whipping this one up again. 🙂

  8. Made this for dinner last night. It was FANTASTIC. When I packed a bowl for left over lunch I through in some frozen (already cooked quinoa). Seriously LOVING my lunch today:)

  9. Can I use beef or chicken broth instead of bone broth?

  10. Can this recipe be canned in a pressure or water bath canned?

    • Possibly. Make sure you read your canning system instructions… Some types can’t do tomato very well because of acid content. If you do want to preserve the sauce for future use, it will not be as wonderfully fresh, but it freezes nicely.

  11. I made this for dinner guests yesterday – everyone RAVED!!! One said her favourite part was the crust. However, it was just a touch too sweet for me and my man since we are used to eating almost no sugar these days, so today I am making this again just for him at half sweetness for the filling – I simply omitted the honey and only used half the maple, added a teaspoon of gelatin, and added and egg as I found it a bit runny yesterday, and I know it would be even more runny omitting half of the sugar that would be caramelized.
    Thanks mama for the recipe – wonderful!

    • I’m so glad you liked it! Thanks for reading!

      • I should not have attempted to change the recipe! It failed! your original pecan pie recipe is perfect.
        But this is odd, I posted this again to the pecan pie page, and it ends up
        again on the Tomato soup page… could you be having technicals?

          • Yep but no biggie, I just reposted there!
            Thanks for ALL you do, I’m forwarding recipes, podcasts, and raving about you and your site to everyone I know! You are making my health journey so much better.
            LOVE the recipe app by the way – so worth it.
            I”m prepping for our first baby making with your recipes and all your wonderful advice. Thank you so much!

    • I have no clue how this ended up on the Tomato Soup page 🙂 I made a mistake! Should have posted on the pecan pie page… And even so, do not omit extra sweetener or add an egg – it did NOT work!

  12. Amazing

  13. This tomato recipe is delish! Even my picky eater husband, who claimed wouldn’t eat tomato soup, ate it. I didn’t have any broth so I just used water. I also used a regular blender vs immersion blender. I just left the little cap on the lid off to let heat go while blending. Perfect dish for this cold night!
