It was only a few years ago I learned to make tomato soup.

A really good tomato soup.

I had no idea it was so simple.

But it is.


Tomato soup ingredients.

With just a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

Cooked in a single sauce pan.

Then pureed in a blender.

(or immersion blender.)

Add some zing with a quick salsa verde made in a mini-prep.

Here’s the recipe:

Servings 2


Tomato Soup

  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Yellow Onion, diced (1/2 cup)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 1 28oz can Whole Peeled Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Heavy Cream
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Salsa Verde

  • 1 cup Mix of Basil, Italian Parsley & Cilantro
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 2/3 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Capers, rinsed
  • 1 Anchovy Fillet Optional (I leave it out)
  • 1/4 Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Tomato Soup

  • In a medium pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat, add onion and cook about 5 minutes until translucent.
  • Add garlic and season with salt and pepper, continue cooking another 30 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes with juice and bring to a boil. Reduced to simmer, and cook about 15 minutes.
  • Transfer to blender and puree until smooth. Be really careful with the hot liquid; remove cap from blender and cover opening with a dish towel. Or use an immersion blender.

Salsa Verde

  • Add mix of herbs, and remaining ingredients to a mini-prep food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  • Transfer to small bowl and stir in olive oil.
  • Season with salt and pepper.

So simple, right?!

Lunch, or dinner, is served!

  • Salsa Verde as a Topper!!!
    I shall have to try!!
    Did I ever tell you the first time I had Salsa Verde a REAL COnTESSA had made it?!!
    Yes it’s TRUE!

  • Hi Kim! Always a fun read! I was just looking for an easy tomato soup recipe, so thank you! Love the idea of topping it with the salsa verde! Also love the story behind the red house! I agree with the poor marketing — instead of playing up the charm, they are trying to make it look like a modern gray home. So sad!

  • Juliet, I feel terrible I am so late commenting. Read this earlier and meant to tell you how good this looks! I think grilled cheese and tomato soup is Max’s all-time favorite so I am going to do this with the salsa verde. Cute cutting the sandwiches up too. This recipe could not have come at a more perfect time! We need comfort food this week!
