Quick and Easy Tomato Soup

Cooked tomatoes have lots of lycopene, which helps protect against prostate and other cancers. For a perfectly smooth soup, let it cool for a bit and run through the food processor again. - Jenny Jones

    I don’t like tomato soup. But I made this recipe.

    It is the best tomato soup I don’t like.

    Hi Jenny,

    Thank you for the quick response to my question.

    Happy to hear that using San Marzano crushed tomatoes is o.k.

    I’m going to make your version next week and will report back to you
    how it turned out. My hubby is crazy nuts for tomato soup!
    I can’t make enough of it.

    So we’ll see what he thinks of yours

    will report back.

    Thanks again Jenny for your speedy response.

    Jenny, can I use San Marzano’s crushed tomatoes for this soup?

    I make another tomato soup and use the San Marzano brand.
    It is absolutely delicious! I also use a hand blender that works
    great. Just wondering if Pomi would make a difference?

    Love,Love your recipies.!!

    Next I am going to make your “stuffed Cabbage rolls”
    My Grandma use to make them and they were out of site!
    She was Croation. They are good cooks too!

    waiting to hear from you and Thanks in advance.

      Yes, San Marzano tomatoes are the best so use them for this soup. In fact, I will add that idea to the recipe.

      I must have close to a hundred spatulas and can’t be sure where I got the ones in the photo, but I buy most of my colorful tools at either Sur La Table or Target.
