Simple Tomato Soup Recipe

Simple Grain Free Dairy Free Tomato Soup

Today, it is 3°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.

How to Make Tomato Soup (From Fresh Tomatoes!)

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.

No Time to Make From Scratch?

It takes less than 30 minutes to make this soup, but life is busy and sometimes I don’t even have that. Kettle & Fire, my favorite broth-makers, also has an amazing ready-made tomato soup that I make sure to keep in the pantry for busy nights. The taste and nutrition is as good as homemade!
