Filling, delicious, cheap – tomatoes are a versatile and tasty food which can be enjoyed in many ways – not least in soup. My favorite recipe for tomato soup is the one I made at my mom’s house this weekend: canned tomatoes, onions, garlic, and spices. There are endless variations of tomato soup recipes out there, but this one is one of my favorites. It’s easy to make and only requires a few ingredients and it tastes just like the best tomato soup you’ve ever had!
We ate it with crusty bread and some slivers of hard cheese accompanied by a glass of red wine – it was delightful!
However, there are many other ways to make tomato soup. Many using fresh tomatoes, which just can’t be beaten. This is an ideal way to use up super-ripe tomatoes which come at the end of every summer.

Are Tomatoes Healthy?
Tomatoes are a great kitchen staple. It’s no wonder they are at the heart of many meals the world over and are held dear in cultures old and new. Not only do tomatoes taste great and complement so many other food types, they also have some key health benefits.
Tomatoes are high in lycopene, an antioxidant that helps protect against heart disease, cancer and other illnesses. They also contain potassium, a mineral that can help prevent muscle cramps and fatigue.
Tomatoes are one of the best foods for cooking. The bright red fruit is packed with vitamins A and C, as well as lycopene and potassium as we mentioned above. That’s why tomato paste has been a favorite of chefs for centuries.
