This Fresh Tomato Soup Is The Blender Recipe Of Your Dreams

Tomato Soup With Fresh Tomatoes… In A Blender!

The tomatoes have already come and gone around these parts, but fortunately you don’t need garden fresh tomatoes to make this delicious, nutritious, and super easy blender soup!  It seems like just a couple of weeks ago that I was up to my eyeballs in tomatoes from my garden, but those days are a fond memory now, with snow on the ground.

The good news is that my bumper crop of tomatoes inspired me to find tomato recipes, and my search led me to this incredibly easy and delicious blender recipe for fresh tomato soup. Grocery store tomatoes work just fine for this, since roasting them gives them a boost of flavor.

This soup could not be simpler to put together. Roasted tomatoes, onions, and garlic are blended with fresh basil into the most luxurious and fresh-tasting tomato soup you’ve ever tasted. Even the pickiest of eaters will fall in love! :-)

Easy Tomato Soup With Fresh Tomatoes (Blender Recipe)


  • 8-10 tomatoes, halved (I used a dozen or so because some of mine were pretty small)
  • 2 medium onions, quartered
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup sliced fresh basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Step 1: Place the halved tomatoes, quartered onions, and garlic cloves into a large bowl and add the oil. Season well with salt and pepper, and stir well to coat.


Place the halved tomatoes, quartered onions, and garlic cloves into a large bowl and add the oil. Season well with salt and pepper, and stir well to coat. 

Step 2: Pour the oiled and seasoned vegetables onto a baking tray, and roast at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Step 3: After 30 minutes, remove the tray from the oven

After 30 minutes, remove the tray from the oven and admire how lovely your roasted veggies look while they cool for a few minutes. ;-)

Step 4: Place the veggies into your blender, along with the sliced basil.

Step 5: If you have a Blendtec blender, you’ll definitely want to use the

If you have a Blendtec blender, you’ll definitely want to use the “soup” function, which is the button on the very right under the power button. Not only does the soup function create the perfect silky smooth texture, it also heats the soup as well! Since the vegetables are still  warm from the oven, the soup comes out at the perfect temperature once it’s done blending!

If you don’t have a soup setting on your blender, just pour the mixture into a pot and heat it over the stove. You can also use an immersion blender and smooth the soup out right in the pot!

Step 6: Once the soup is blended, add salt and pepper to taste.

Once the soup is blended, add salt and pepper to taste. If your soup is too thick, you can add a little vegetable broth or water to thin it out a bit. Serve with some crusty bread or a nice grilled cheese sandwich, and enjoy! :-)

Storing Leftover Tomato Soup

You can store leftover soup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. You can freeze any leftovers too — it’s wonderful to have soup in the freezer for those hectic days when you get home late and tired!

To freeze the soup, let it cool completely, then freeze it in an airtight container for up to three months. To serve, thaw the soup in the fridge overnight and reheat on the stove. You can also freeze the soup in individual servings and use the microwave to thaw and reheat them.

  • […] everything you thought you knew about boring-old tomato soup. Special thanks to Jillee at Onegoodthingbyjillee.com for […]

  • Thanks , I’ve recently been looking for information about this subject for a long time and yours is the best I’ve
    came upon till now. However, what about the conclusion? Are you sure about the

  • Such a simple yet surely delicious soup! Will definitely be trying this one out, maybe adding in some chili powder as well (like my soups spicy!)

    Thank you for sharing this :)

  • I love a good tomato basil soup to go with a crispy, gooey, grilled cheese sandwich. My favorite soup to make though is a quick leftover veggie soup- easy, my 7 year daughter gets to help, and I love the chance to not waste odds and ends before they go bad.

  • This tomato recipe sounds good but right now at this moment my aunt is telling me how she made blueberry sorbet in her machine so I would like to make that I think.

  • I loove creamy soups – I don’t even like any other soups anymore :-) Oh, so many favorite recipes, but may be the Creamy leek & cauliflower soup with sprinkles of cilantro it’s one that I do more often. Yum :-)

  • My son loves my cheesy potato soup (he’d take it every day for lunch if he could). I recently made the Pioneer Woman’s chicken noodle soup and it was awesome.

  • Thanks for the recipe. I love soup and I’m excited it’s fall so I can make lots of soup. I have a maple butternut squash soup which I make. I’ll add this one to my recipes.

  • I would love to make a creamy batch of autumn squash soup! Fingers crossed, because I don’t have a blender and could never afford a Blendtec! Thanks:-)

  • Wow, I did not know these blenders had a soup function. That really makes them a kitchen workhorse! I think some cream of potato or cream of broccoli soups would be fantastic since you can purée and cook all at once.

  • I love broccoli cheese soup and french onion and clam chowder (New England) and vegetable and so many others. We eat a lot of soup during the winter. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • I can’t wait to use all the tomatoes from the garden. They are getting too hard to eat fresh and will be perfect in the blender for tomato soup. Thanks for the wonderful idea and a great way to save the end of summer.

  • In the winter my favorite soup is my mother’s recipe for cream of potato soup and in the summer it is Mexican gazpacho. The blender would be fantastic to make the gazpacho.

    Thanks for a chance at the giveaway!

  • Olive Garden’s Chicken Gnocchi soup–I have a wonderful copycat recipe that gets rave reviews from everyone. Fancy enough for company, but great for every day as well.

  • Just commented on another blog earlier this evening that I love soup–I could eat it everyday! Tortilla, Tomato, Sausage & Bean, Split Pea & Ham… Love all of them!

  • I have quite a few favorite soups, but my favorite one right now is a simple fish soup in a tomato white wine broth. It’s simple to make and very tasty.

  • This recipe looks so good, never had tomato soup with basil. My favorite soup has all kinds of things in it that my hubby makes. Veggie stock, tofu, mixed veggies, mushrooms & lentils.

  • My favorite used to be my Grannies’s potato soup recipe. Potatoes and onions cooked to almost mushiness and drained except for 1/2cup of the water. Blended with cream (or whole milk), butter, and salt until the perfect consistency (might need the reserved cooking water to thin it up). Enjoy!
    I say “used to be” as I’m now trying to eat Paleo. I’ll try this tomato soup soon! :). Would LOVE to own a GOOD blender. ;)

  • I made my favorite soup this past weekend: It’s Italian Sausage Soup which I discovered years ago on the Midwest Living website. It’s so yummy! A close second would be Greek Lemon Chicken Soup. I always use leftover Thanksgiving turkey to make Williamsburg Soup, a kind of cream of turkey soup with rice.

  • My favorite soup is gazpacho in all the way’s to make it. The one made with garlic and almond milk served with frozen green grapes is great for warm weather. The Blendtec would make grinding the almonds so much easier.

  • My current favorite soup is a zuppa touscana recipe I found on pinterest – but as the temp drops I am excited to get started on many new ones to try!

  • We love to make loaded potato chowder. Our blender bit the dust last year, and I haven’t been able to replace it. Now it is soup season so a very timely giveaway!

  • I too adore tomato soup seasoned with a variety of herbs–especially basil. Additionally, I am a huge fan of chili :)
    Thanks for your inspiration.

  • My sister gave me a recipe for Shrimp Chowder that is simple and oh so yummy. I’m so glad that cool weather is headed our way so we can have it again – it’s a “heavy” soup, not something appropriate for hot summers. MMMMMMMMMMMM…………

  • Oh my goodness does this sound GOOD!!! I roasted a ton of tomatoes this summer to make tomato sauce, and it’s flavor is superb. The roasting makes ALL the difference!

    My favorite soup? Chili, or Loaded Baked Potato (Our Best Bites)… do I have to chose? : )

  • My favorite soup is my version of Olive Garden’s Minestrone. So delicious, and warming, on a cold day! There can be a lot of memories relived with a family recipe in the kitchen. Kinda warms you with a warm fuzzy as well.

  • WOOO! I love butternut squash soup!
    1 med. squash
    1 med. onion
    1 tlb coconut oil
    2 can veggie broth
    dash of cinnamon, pepper and salt
    :) pick me pick me! xoxo

  • My favorite soup recipe is potato soup! It is super easy to make and very good, and the version I use also uses some good veggies in it as well. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!

  • This soup sounds delicious. I might have to halve the recipe because I know my Kitchenaid won’t blend that quantity. Tomato Basil soup and Potato soup are my favorite soups!

  • I would make the tomato basil soup ASAP as that is a favorite at our house! I like to add some cream and a little brown sugar to it and for a really filling meal, I add cheese tortellini.

  • I can think of a thousand things I’d love to make in a Blendtec, like homemade mushroom soup, homemade ice cream and of course homemade tomato soup. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a cool prize!

  • My favorite soup is a creamy, 3 mushroom soup. I haven’t made it in a long time, but thinking about just makes me salivate. AND…it is worth every stinkin’ creamy calorie!!

  • I LOVE soup in the winter. So I make a lot of different types – probably my favorite is my version of Zuppa Toscana. But I also love the soups I make with the leftovers from a chicken or turkey dinner!

  • I love soup – I could eat it five times a week during the winter – and I can’t wait to try this tomato basil soup recipe. It looks and sounds delicious! I don’t know if this is technically a soup, but chicken and dumplings is one of our family’s favorites.

  • I love making soups, one of my favorite is a spicy corn chowder and when finished cooking it you take about 1/3 of it and blend it to make the soup thick and creamy so I think the Blendtec blender would be perfect for all my soups that I love to make.

  • My favorite soup is any I make! I have gotten into crockpot soups in the last year and, to toot my own horn, they have all been amazing! The last I made was chicken tortilla. So good and hearty!

  • It’s hard to pick a favorite, I love soup season and will definitely be adding this recipe to my mix. Potato Cheese, Zuppa Toscana, Chili, Stew, and Taco Soup are among my favorites. But grilled cheese and tomato soup is pure comfort food! Can’t wait to try it.

  • My favorites are Taco Soup, Potato Soup, and White Chicken Chili! Thanks for the giveaway, and thanks for helping me decide what to have for dinner tonight!

  • My Ukrainian grandmother taught me many recipes as a child. The one I crave in the winter…Cabbage Soup.
    I tweaked it a little, eliminating the roux, use cooked pork chops-cut in small cubes, and add lots of chunky veggies and kraut. So satisfying.
    I could see using the blender to puree this into a thicker version.

  • Thank you for the great giveaway! I dream of owning a Blendtec. My fav soup for several years is butternut squash – a Test Kitchen recipe that has such depth of flavor. I make a huge batch and it freezes well.

  • My kids love when I make home made chicken noodle soup..I want to try making my own green Chile enchilada sauce..I’m just stArting to get into cooking..trying out new recipes as well as old ones..

  • I’m just getting into cooking. But my favorite soup is tomato basil with a nice grilled cheese sandwich. I live in Calfornia and we finally are having some cool weather. I am going to make this soup tomorrow! Thanks!

  • Definitely my (vegetarian) baked potato soup! I revamped my mom’s recipe to use veggie broth instead of chicken so I could enjoy it, too!
    And I’d LOVE to win this! I have such a crummy blender! And my birthday was yesterday! lol :)

  • My favorite soup is italian sausage with a few cans of stewed tomatoes. Its quick and the family loves it. I add whatever veggies we have in the house. Sometimes a can of beans. Sometimes some rice or pasta if I want to bulk it up. Its tasty, easy and fits in one pot so the mess afterward is minimal. Love it!

  • Sounds great! My favorite soup that is good fresh or leftover, hot or cold (!) is super-easy and fast butternut squash soup. You start with two butternut squashes which you peel and cut into chunks (or to make it even easier, buy pre-cut butternut squash from your local supermarket:D). Cook in salted water until soft. Blend with salt and pepper to taste and voila! Done! Super-easy and super yummy! A great appetizer or snack anytime!

  • Call me simple, but my favorite is still my dad’s chicken noodle soup. I have actually started to ask him to make it for me for my birthday the last few years in lieu of a present. It’s simple, comforting and delicious!

    That said though… I’ve wanted for years to try to make this pumpkin bisque I had at a fancy schmancy country club Christmas party ages ago – I bet the Blendtec would make a killer one!! :)

  • I really want to try juicing…but I don’t like that juicing removes all the fiber that makes the fruits and veggies that much better for you. A fantastic blender would be the solution to that! ;)

  • My all time favorite soup is my moms homemade Thanksgiving Turkey soup. We make it every Black Friday and I swear it only lasts about a day in our house.

  • My favorite soup is chicken noodle. I make fresh noodles to put in it. My family loves it too!
    Thanks Jillee for sharing these amazing recipes and ideas!

  • I love tomato soup! Can’t wait to try this recipe. I love traditional chicken noodle soup which my son absolutely loves! He can never get enough. I actually was doing some research on getting a high quality blender and Blendtec was on my list. Having this in my kitchen would be a great addition to my family eating healthy.

  • This soup looks fabulous! I will definitely have to try it (when I finally get my hands on a Blendtec blender)! :) I also can’t wait to make green smoothies so much easier with a Blendtec blender!

  • I LOVE tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches! My Mom used to make a soup called Sunset Soup (she may have given it this name). It’s a blend of tomato soup and orange juice. Serve cold with a slice of lemon floating on top with fresh ground pepper. Wonderful summer faire!!! Thanks for the recipe!

  • I love all kinds of soups so it’s hard to pick just one but I’ll try. Ok, I can’t :-)

    Love Chicken Tortilla Soup but would love to get my hands on a great recipe for Cream of Asparagus soup!

  • My absolute favorite soup is a recipe from WW. “Harvest Chicken Chowder” is a savory, hearty chicken soup that you finish with pumpkin and evaporated milk. I made this for the first time in’98 and my family has loved it ever since. This is the first thing my daughter asks for when she comes home to visit from college. “Mom, did you make my Pumpkin soup?” *cue the puppy dog eyes* It’s quick and is perfect for those chilly fall days. I make it my own by substituting cilantro for the parsley and adding a few tablespoons of instant potatoes to thicken it. I hope you all try it even if I don’t win. http://www.cookingindex.com/recipes/1794/harvest-chicken-chowder.htm

  • My favorite soup is cream of mushroom. BUT my favorite Blendtec soup is Taco soup. Easy to make, quick, and oh so yummy. I am going to try roasting the tomatoes and onions first, thanks to your great recipe. Thanks Jillee!

  • My favorite soup is one made with oyster mushrooms, garlic, onions and turkey broth! Last year I canned the juice from my turkey and it made a wonderful broth! I sautéed the onions, mushrooms and garlic in butter and olive oil, then added the broth, sea salt and fresh ground pepper. AWESOME!

  • I would love to make some kind of creamy potato soup. Not the cheesy kind you get in most restaurants, but the kind my mom and grandma made. It had milk and eggs in it. It was so good!

  • Honestly, I think Tomato Basil soup is my favorite. But I just heard a friend of mine say she was making apple pie soup and pumpkin pie soup. That sounds super delicious too!

  • I’ve tried this and added a red pepper to the vegetables when I roast them, and then a bit of cream cheese for some creaminess. Comes out amazing every time :)

  • I love tortilla soup, made from a rotisserie roasted chicken and whatever veggies you like in your soup. Then top it with avocado, cilantro and a hand ful of cheese. MMMM …. so glad soup weather is coming!
