There’s no need to babysit the stove with this blender tomato soup! I can’t think of anything more comforting or nostalgic than tomato soup. Although my taste buds have evolved from Campbell’s version, I still love a bowl of tomato soup on a cold day or night.

The Vitamix is one of my favorite appliances. It’s powerful enough to make everything from nut butter, dips, and smoothies to hot soups and batters. The best part is you don’t even have to transfer the soup to the stove. If you blend the tomato soup for several minutes, it heats it for you.

Next time you want to reach for canned soup, consider this simple Vitamix soup instead. It tastes delicious and homemade without all the work. You don’t even need a pot!

Why You Need This Recipe

  • This hot soup is ready in less than 20 minutes. Fresh ingredients combined in a Vitamix blender transforms into lunch with very little effort.
  • You don’t even have to cook the soup. The blender does it for you.
  • It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, & vegan!
  • This quick homemade soup makes a delicious lunch or dinner. Serve it with crusty bread or a grilled cheese sandwich (vegans can use dairy-free cheese).

Key Ingredients

ingredients for tomato soup.

Vegetable broth – Vegetable broth packs in flavor but can be high in sodium. I like to buy reduced-sodium broth for a healthier alternative.

Unsweetened plant milk – Plant milk adds a touch of creaminess. I used almond milk but any plant milk will work just fine. If you’re not on a dairy-free diet, heavy cream or half and half work well too. Leave it out if you don’t want a creamy soup.

Diced tomatoes – You need two 14.5-ounce cans of diced tomatoes or one 28-ounce can. You can also use whole tomatoes like San Marzano if you prefer. Don’t use fresh tomatoes as they won’t have that roasted flavor and your soup will taste like tomato juice.

Tomato paste – Tomato paste thickens the soup and gives it more tomato flavor.

Olive oil – Just a teaspoon of olive oil adds a little bit of creaminess and flavor.

Garlic clove – Garlic has a pungent flavor that mellows once cooked. It adds sweetness and garlicky flavor to this soup.

Seasonings – Salt and pepper bring out the flavor of the soup, while oregano adds Italian flavor. Dried or fresh basil, thyme, or Italian seasoning all work nicely.

Sugar – A small amount of sugar brings out the natural sweetness of the tomatoes. You can leave it out if you avoid added sugars.

Recipe Tips & Substitutions

  • You can leave out the sugar if you are on a low-sugar diet.
  • You can use other dried herbs instead of or in addition to the dried oregano. Dried rosemary or dried thyme would be great too.
  • If you aren’t on a vegan or dairy-free diet, you can use heavy cream instead of plant milk.

Recipe FAQs

What can I serve with tomato bisque soup?

Any type of sandwich or grilled cheese is delicious alongside tomato soup. You could also serve it with salad, crusty bread, crackers, or gluten-free cornbread.

Is tomato soup healthy?

Tomatoes are full of lycopene, an antioxidant linked to reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also packed with vitamin C, folate, potassium, and vitamin K. This recipe also uses plant milk in place of heavy cream for even more nutrients and less fat.

Can I use another high-speed blender for tomato soup?

Yes, if you don’t have a Vitamix you can use another blender including a regular blender or an immersion blender so long as it has a powerful motor. Otherwise, the soup won’t steam, but you can still pour it into a pot and heat it up after blending.

What Vitamix blender model do you recommend?

I have had several. I like the Vitamix Explorian because it’s not too expensive and it works great.
