What I love about this soup recipe is that chances are you already have most of this in your pantry. I always keep onions, vegetable oil, salt, and pepper at home. I typically buy fresh tomatoes and heavy cream when I need them. So a quick trip to the store and you are in business. The tomatoes do need to cook in the oven for awhile, so I like to start those first. When they are about done cooking that is when I saute my onions. Cooking doesn’t always mean you are standing at the stove the whole time.
When the soup is done, you might want to serve this with a grilled cheese sandwich, or you toss in a few croutons. I know you are going to love how easy this is to make easy tomato soup. You never knew it was so easy to make homemade soup like this before.
