Tomato Soup – Quick and Speedy and Easy and Yummy!

Yummmm.  Normally this is not something I would make in the summertime – especially when its been so hot in Moscow!  But a few weeks ago, when it WASN’T as hot, I made the Cheese Muffins that I love for my roomie who was coming home from a trip in another city.  They were perfectly paired with this quick and easy to make tomato soup.

So if it’s a bit too warm out right now for you to make soup….just bookmark this for a blustery Fall day.  I know I will! 🙂

Quick & Speedy & Easy & Yummy Tomato Soup (adapted from Picky Palate)


38 oz. (1077 g) canned diced tomatoes

1 C. diced white or yellow onion

1 C. heavy cream (can use less to save on fat/calories)

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. garlic powder

generous sprinkling dry basil, or stir in some fresh


Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth, about 20-30 seconds.  You can blend it for a shorter amount of time if you like yours a little chunky.  You’ll have to blend in batches so as to not have a red tomatoey mess all over your kitchen and yourself! 🙂 Transfer mixture to a medium-large saucepan and heat over a medium heat, stirring until hot.  Serve with fresh bread or warm Cheese Muffins! 🙂  Enjoy!
