Homemade Tomato Soup Recipes You Should Know
Last Sunday as I was making grilled cheese and tomato soup (from a can) for my daughter and me while my husband took our son back to college, I started to think about all the homemade tomato soup recipes that are out there. We are big fans of grilled cheese on ciabatta bread made on the panini maker and the only thing that was lacking that night was an equally amazing tomato soup.
What I love about tomato soup is that you can make any recipe your own just by adding your favorite toppings. I also love that soup is an inexpensive dinner alternative that I add to our meal plan almost weekly.
After cleaning up dinner, I started to think about all the different homemade tomato soup recipes I’ve yet to try and decided to post a roundup of some of the tastiest, most amazing looking tomato soup recipes I could find. From simple recipes you throw in the crockpot to recipes that require a little more work (but not much more), I think you’ll find one here that you’ll want to make for dinner this week!
Creamy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese “Croutons”
What caught my attention with this recipe from Damn Delicious is the fact that the grilled cheese is added as a topping! Oh, how I love to dip a grilled cheese sandwich into tomato soup! Whoever thought of this concept is a genius!

One Pot Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup
I love that you don’t need to cook the tortellini in a separate pot for this tomato soup recipe by Gal on a Mission. Just add it right to the soup at the right time and enjoy a hearty soup meal for dinner with minimal cleanup!

Beefy Tomato Soup
I’m not gonna lie…we eat a lot of beef at my house. I’ve been buying the 90% lean grass-fed beef from Target lately and it hasn’t disappointed us. This is definitely a hearty soup by Mantitlement, including both pasta and meat in it, and would taste amazing with some toasted cheesy bread dipped in it!

Beefy Tomato Macaroni Soup
This tomato soup recipe from Hot Eats and Cool Reads is somewhat similar to the one above, including both meat and pasta. I do have to say that soup feels more like a dinner when it includes generous portions of meat!

SLOW COOKER HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP RECIPES
Below are three slow cooker homemade tomato soup recipes that will help you save time, yet give the family a hearty meal at the end of the day. Whether you’re at work all day, and/or have carpool duty in the afternoon and don’t get back to dinner time or after, these soups will be ready and waiting for you! Throw some crusty bread in the oven to heat up and throw a quick salad together. I always keep a couple of Ready Pac foods Chopped Complete Salad Kits in my refrigerator…Mediterranean would go nicely with the tomato soup. It takes less than a minute to dump the contents of the salad in a bowl and serve it up!

Gnocci and chicken in your soup…can you ask for more? In fact, this recipe from Cooking and Beer will probably be the first of the tomato soup recipes listed here that I try. This would also make a nice autumn or winter weekend meal. Be sure to check out the recipe on the Cooking and Beer website for a beer recommendation for this soup!
