Creamy Tomato Soup (Raw or Cooked)

Tomato season is here big time and on my recent family trip to Pennsylvania – where we visited a couple of local farms and wineries -I purchased – among other goodies – a huge basket of ripe tomatoes.

Huge, meaning 25 pounds, or perhaps more. That’s a lot of tomatoes as far as I’m concerned!

(Talk about buying local and buying in bulk, LOL. The whole basket was 14.99, so it’s about 60 cents per pound of really ripe, tasty tomatoes – not bad!)

So, what can you do with a whole box of tomatoes? Fresh tomato juice, raw V8 juice, tomato salad, tomato sauce, and tomato soup are some of the options that come to mind.

But if you think I spent hours in the kitchen, cooking and pureeing… you’ll be wrong. What I made has to be the easiest ever tomato soup recipe


The soup can be made using a juicer or blender. Plus it’s delicious!

Tomato Soup Recipe

  • 4-5 large, ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of cashews, raw
  • salt & pepper to taste

Blender Version:

Blend all ingredients on high for a few minutes, until very smooth, creamy and warm. High power blender, such as Vitamix will heat up the soup for you as you blend it; or pour into a pot and warm up on the stove – no need to boil it. This results in a thicker, creamier soup than the juicer version. The soup will have bubbles (as seen in the picture below), but if you blend it a little longer on low the bubbles will disappear. Substitute cashews with avocado.

Juicer Version:

Juice half of the tomatoes, and blend the remaining tomatoes with cashews on high, until very smooth and creamy. This results in less thick soup.

  • 6-8 tomatoes
  • 1/2 small onion (1/4 large)
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 cup basil (optional)
  • pinch of sea salt and pepper, to taste

Juice all ingredients, starting with the greens.  Transfer juice to a pot and gently heat until warm, but do NOT let come to boil.  Season with salt and pepper to taste, stir well. Transfer to soup bowls, whisk, and enjoy. (Soup separates easily, so you will need to whisk often.)

More Variations:

  • For a chunky texture, add some chopped fruits and veggies, or blend in a variety of vegetables and fruits, such as peppers, celery, peaches, etc.
  • Add some fresh herbs – basil is excellent in this soup.
  • Garnish with some fresh corn for “rice,” a few leaves of basil, or sprouts.
  • Serve with a slice of bread. tomato-soup005e

My Juicer: Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain

The juicer that I currently use (BTW it’s the same as filmed in the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary) is Breville Juice Fountain JE98XL which you can find on Amazon or in any store that carries kitchen appliances. If you’re on the market for a juicer, it's a good juicer to consider.
