This Creamy Tomato Soup is a twist on the classic favourite. Easy to make and super filling, this ought to be next on your lunch or dinner list. Plus, it makes the perfect pair to a grilled cheese!
Historically, I haven’t been a huge fan of tomato soup, but because many people are, I wanted to make a version that I also enjoyed. I think the barrier for me was that it just seemed like a bowl of pureed tomatoes, which didn’t sound too appealing or filling. To “beef” up this soup (without any meat, of course), I decided to add a can of white kidney or navy beans. These add filling fibre, protein and a creaminess that is so tasteful. Plus, that addition of cream cheese adds an extra level of smoothness and a rich flavour that isn’t typically found in classic tomato soup.
For this super easy Creamy Tomato Soup, all you need is:
Thankfully, a lot of these ingredients are pantry and kitchen staples. The few things that may not be as regular on your grocery list, like cream cheese, can be utilized after this recipe! Add cream cheese to pasta sauces to make them creamier, whip up an easy cheesecake for the holidays or keep it uber simple and slather it on a bagel with some homemade everything bagel seasoning!
If you don’t have kidney beans or navy beans, a can of lentils will also provide a great source of fibre, iron and plant-based protein. Or experiment with your favourite legume and let me know how it turns out!
To bring the soup to the next level, consider topping it with some fresh basil or parsley. A sprinkle of grated cheese or even some roasted pumpkin seeds can elevate the flavour and texture. And you can never go wrong with keeping it simple with a top of freshly ground black pepper and salt. Season just to your liking!
Don’t forget to accompany the soup with some tasty sides. Of course, my favourite option is an ooey gooey grilled cheese sandwich. I made the one pictured here with gouda cheese and it was delicious! Alternatively, you could also enjoy the Creamy Tomato Soup with a side of baguette and butter, veggies and dip or fresh leafy green salad! There are a ton of options that pair really nicely.
