Creamy Tomato Soup

Creamy Tomato Soup recipe - delicious homemade tomato soup that is ready in under 20 minutes! Chicken broth, tomato puree, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, oregano, basil, cream cheese and milk. I use low fat cheese and milk and it tastes great!! Serve with a grilled cheese sandwich for a quick weeknight meal.

I love tomato soup.  I grew up on Campbell's Tomato soup made with milk, not water, and I still love it!  I've been wanting to make homemade tomato soup for a while.  I've been searching for a good recipe, and  I finally found one that looked good and easy.  My main objective was to avoid pureeing the soup before serving.  This recipe uses tomato puree, so it worked out perfectly!  

The soup was really good.  It was nice and creamy from the cream cheese and milk.  We both enjoyed it a lot!  It was much more flavorful than my usual Campbell's soup.  This has a bit of a kick from the red pepper flakes, so feel free to leave those out if you don't want any heat.

  1. Steph - I've been looking for a good recipe as well, but they always taste like tomato flavored chicken broth. Sounds like this one is really tomato soup. When I was a kid, I always tore up bread pieces and added to the soup - still like it that way, kinda like stewed tomatoes.

  2. This is going to be a must try. I always eat tomato soup with my grill cheese or ham and cheese. Looking forward to making this one.

  5. I made this and loved it. I used more tomato sauce and I sauted some onions and then pureed them with some garlic. I didn't add much cream cheese but did add a splash of cream since i wanted to get rid of it. So quick adn easy, will totally make again!
