This recipe for amazing tomato soup is very simple. You will need fresh tomatoes, onion, heavy whipping cream, vegetable oil, salt, and pepper. That’s all you will need.

Don’t you love it when a recipe is as simple as this? This recipe is vegetarian and gluten-free. So even people with unique dietary requirements can enjoy this soup.

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 a while, so I like to start those first. When they are about done roasting 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 it with a grilled cheese sandwich or toss in a few croutons.

I know you are going to love how easy this is to make amazing tomato soup. You never knew it was so easy to make homemade soup like this before.

    I love this recipe. I actually smoked my tomatoes then grilled them. It came out so Yummy! So easy to make. Thank you for posting this recipe.

    Bake the tomatoes for 75 minutes. That seems like a long time to me but I’m anxious to try this recipe so I thought I should check. Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Saw a video on epicurious that was this same recipe. Video didn’t have the details so I found your website.

    Very impressed how this came out. I’m sure a can of crushed tomatoes would be cheaper than out-of-season roma tomatoes, but it was fun doing the roasting.
