Creamy and rich tomato soup with flavour and colour that makes you happy. Perfect for dinner with good bread. A simple recipe made with onions, tomatoes, and cream. Crispy bacon, bread croutons or a few pieces of crumbly feta cheese guarantees an extra rich tomato soup. Season with a pinch of sugar.


  • Peel and chop the onion.
  • Heat the butter in a pan and fry the onion until soft but not brown.
  • Add the tomatoes, water, crumbled stock, cream, and pepper. Let the tomato soup boil for a few minutes. Season with sugar and top with parsley.

Which spices go well with tomato soup?
Spices are a great way to add variety to this dish. Most herbs pair well with the soup and our top list includes basil, thyme, or oregano. Shake it up even more (literally) by experimenting with combinations of chilli, paprika, celery salt, or even cumin. Soon you will discover the perfect mix, your very own secret ingredient!
Does soup get better the longer you cook it?
Generally, yes. The longer your ingredients spend together in the same pot, the deeper your flavours will be. Always keep the temperature to a low simmer (that point where one or two bubbles rise to the surface every few seconds) and be careful of overcooking where your ingredients could turn mushy.

What to serve with tomato soup

Warm bread straight from the oven is always a perfect companion, especially to soak up those last drops of crimson goodness from your bowl. A side salad with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar is a great alternative with the added benefit of highlighting the soup’s flavour even more.

The best tomatoes to use for tomato soup

Because tomatoes are your star ingredient, pay attention to the ripeness and quality of the fruit (yes, tomatoes are fruits). Plum varieties like Roma or San Marzano are good options, as are smaller varieties like cherry tomatoes if you prefer a sweeter end-result.
