I love homemade tomato soup and this is by far the best tomato soup recipe I have ever tried. Made with fresh tomatoes, this soup is bursting with flavor, but is so simple to make. This will certainly become one of your family favorites!


8 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped (about 10 – 12 medium sized tomatoes)
1 onion, sliced
8 whole cloves
2 cloves garlic, crushed
4 c chicken broth (use vegetable broth if you want it to be vegetarian)
4 T unsalted butter
4 T flour
1 T kosher salt
1 T sugar
1/2 tsp white pepper


  1. In a dutch oven or stock pot, combine the chopped tomatoes, sliced onion, cloves, garlic and broth. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Continue boiling gently for about 30 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Put the tomato mixture through a food mill or a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl.
  3. In the empty stockpot or dutch oven, over medium heat, melt the butter; quickly whisk in the flour to make a roux. Continue cooking and whisking over medium heat until the roux turns a medium brown color.
  4. Add a small amount of the tomato mixture to the roux and whisk until smooth; continue adding small amounts of the tomato mixture and whisking thoroughly until you have a smooth liquid. Add the remaining tomato mixture and whisk to thoroughly combine. By adding small amounts of liquid to your roux, you ensure that you will have no lumps in your soup. If for some reason you end up with lumps, pour the mixture through a fine sieve and return to the pot. Continue cooking until soup is hot and slightly thickened.
  5. Add the salt, sugar and pepper, stir well. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
We like to add a little dab of sour cream and some corn salsa to our soup. Delicious!
