Homemade Tomato Soup – Yummy when Cooking with Kids!

Simple Fast Recipe for Tomato Soup


  • Two onions chopped medium
  • Two cloves of chopped garlic
  • Better than Bouillon chicken stock – one tsp for 8oz of hot water – make up about 4 – 6 cups ( use Vegetable Stock if you wish to make this Vegetarian)
  • Water
  • Two boxes of Pomi chopped tomatoes in sauce or about 10 LARGE fresh tomatoes or 20 smaller ones – skins taken off ( put in hot water for 10 minutes – don’t cook – then slip off skins)
  • Salt and pepper to taste.


  1.  Put about 3 tbsp of olive oil in a pot and heat –
  2. Add two chopped cloves of garlic – fry for a few minutes.
  3. Take two whole onions and chop them medium fine.
  4. Add the onions and sauté until soft.
  5. Add the fresh tomatoes which you have skinned, OR two boxes of Pomi chopped tomatoes in sauce, and then 4 -6cups of  water into which you have added the right amount of chicken bouillon ( I use ‘Better than Bouillon’). If you want this to be vegetarian, use vegetable stock. The kids can do this part.
  6. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes, add seasoning salt and pepper to taste
  7. Puree in a blender ( let it cool a bit before doing this). This is where the children LOVE to taste.
  8. Serve with home made croutons ( cut up pieces of day old bread, sautéed in olive oil and garlic salt until brown). Of course snacking on these is a must!
  9. If you don’t want to serve immediately, then freeze in serving portions for 4 people. And don’t add the croutons until you are ready to serve

This is comfort food at its best!
