This is a recipe that I took from a junior cook book. I made this a few years ago and my family enjoyed it a lot. Hope you family will too =)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the onion and cook until very soft and lightly golden, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
  2. Add the tomatoes, stock, tomato paste and sugar to the pan. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat.
  3. Simmer the soup, partially covered with a lid, for 20 minutes. Allow the soup to cool a little, then process it in batches in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  4. Return the soup to the pan, stir in the cream and reheat gently. Don't let the soup boil once you have added the cream, or it will curdle.
  5. Serve heated, garnished with chopped spring onions.

Wonderfully simple, but full of flavor soup. I love it, I enjoyed with shredded parmesan and some croutons. I added oregano. It reminded me of Panera's cream of tomato soup. Next time I will try it with asiago cheese. Thanks for posting this recipe.

A nice tomato soup! I used garlic and onion flavored diced tomatoes which provided much needed flavor, as I felt this soup was a bit mild (even with my flavored tomatoes). I added 2T of parmesan cheese at the end and that did the trick for me. Also of note, I used half and half in place of cream without compromising the creamy texture. Thanks! Made for MAKE MY RECIPE.

Great soup, PWKid! My stepson doesn't like tomato soup but I coerced him into trying a bowl. He said the cream in the recipe was great! He ate a bowl then he made himself another bowl for a snack a few hours later! I was stunned stupid. Thanks for the recipe. He's 14 and wants a girlfriend. If you are interested...
