Tomato Basil Soup Recipe

So if you haven’t noticed by now, I have quite the obsession with basil. Not only did I want a tomato soup one day, but I specifically wanted a tomato basil soup, so I created my own recipe. I didn’t want any heavy creams or unhealthy additives to my soup, I knew I just wanted a clean, fresh, pure tomato basil soup recipe.

Basically, I took some flavorful ingredients and tossed them in my amazing Vitamix blender and within a few minutes I had hot soup.

This tomato basil soup recipe is really quick, easy, and delicious. By making soup at home you’ll receive more nutrients than the canned brands with no extra additives or high sodium involved. Too much sodium in one’s diet can lead to high blood pressure, hypertension, which can actually lead to heart disease. So forget the high-sodium canned soup and make your own. I have plenty of soup recipes for you to enjoy. If you ever have any requests, you can always contact me and I will find a way to make your favorite soups into a healthier version.

Tomatoes have vitamins A, C, K, manganese, fiber, folate, potassium, lycopene, and so much more. Garlic and basil have antibacterial and antiviral healing properties. This recipes is great for people with pain issues, if you’re sick, great for cardiovascular health, and a better alternative than high sodium canned soup.

    I’d have to throw in an extra clove of garlic :)

    The Vitamix blender can actually HEAT the soup also?! That’s amazing!!! I’ve never seen anything like that before!

    Great flavor. I used my vitamix and it is really frothy.
    Any suggestions on how to make it more like a soup than a foam??

    • Angela on February 21, 2013 at 6:07 pm

      if you stir in a little bit of olive oil it helps to get rid of some of the foam.

    enjoyed your recipe. any suggestions on making it a bit thicker if possible?

    • Heather on May 2, 2013 at 7:02 pm

      Glad to hear you enjoyed it. More tomato or maybe a little bit of corn starch if you’d like, but only 1 tsp.

      • mark on May 3, 2013 at 8:54 pm

        Used 4 big Roma’s so will take your suggestion about the corn starch

      If you like a thicker creamer soup adding a little cream would be great too.

      Awww, that really means a lot to me <3 Thank you so much for taking the time to write me and tell me this. What type of recipes do you normally search for?

    Thanks for the recipe. Do the seeds completely puree in the Vitamix? I hate the seeds in tomato soup but don’t want to go through the hassle of removing the seeds.

    • Heather on November 7, 2013 at 9:21 am

      Yes, in the Vitamix they do. That thing is a beast! And I love it!

    THANK YOU! for sharing this!! I just got a viatmix and tried to make this today on my own and it was a bust :( I am excited to try again with you recipe :)

  8. Dawn on April 7, 2014 at 8:15 pm

    Thanks for the great recipe. I added a bit of water and also olive oil as suggested. Can’t wait until summer tomatoes are ready

    I can’t wait to try the tomato soup- I think I will add a little coconut milk. I hope to find batters that are SF using all natural sweeteners (dates, coconut sugar, honey, stevia) and using almond and coconut flours.

    • Heather on September 17, 2014 at 12:34 pm

      That’s a great idea and sounds delish!

  10. Sheri on September 23, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    Absolutely delish! Easy & simple. Not overdone at all. Took 4 decent sized tomatoes & fresh basil from my garden; threw in 3 good sized cloves & got a medium thick spicy delicious soup!!!!! GF cdnt believe no other seasonings. LOVED it & will make it a lot. 5 stars for sure!!

    • Heather on September 24, 2014 at 3:22 pm

      Aw yay thanks Sheri! So happy to hear you like it. How awesome you commented on this when you did because it’s exactly what I had for lunch yesterday! :-)
