Tomato soup has to be one of the most classic soups I can think of. It reminds me of cold winter days playing outside in the snow and coming inside to warm up.
But what is even better about the soup, aside from being delicious, is how healthy it is!
IS TOMATO SOUP HEALTHY?
Tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene. When tomatoes are cooked, the lycopene is more readily available to your body to use to fight disease! Amazing that with this vegetable, the cooked version has greater benefits than the raw!
What else makes this soup healthy:
- Onion: high in vitamin C!
- Garlic: anti-inflammatory
- Bone broth: very healing for your gut!
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSIC AND CREAMY TOMATO SOUP?
Classic tomato soup is made with tomatoes, broth and flavorings (like onion, garlic, and other spices). Creamy tomato soup is made with canned tomatoes and milk or cream to give it a creamy texture. Both are usually pureed.
TIPS TO MAKE THE BEST TOMATO SOUP RECIPE WITH BONE BROTH
USE ORGANIC CANNED TOMATOES. Or even fresh ripe summer tomatoes! But if it is winter time, which is the best soup making time, organic canned tomatoes are the best canned tomatoes for tomato soup!
COOK ON LOW HEAT FOR 1 HOUR. Allow tomato soup to cook about an hour so the flavors can come together.
USE AN IMMERSION BLENDER TO PUREE TOMATO SOUP. No pouring of hot soup into a small blender and having extra dishes to clean!

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY TOMATO BONE BROTH SOUP AT HOME
This is a great recipe for bone broth soup! Bone broth has so much more protein and health benefits than stock and is great to keep winter colds away.
Step 1: Sauté the onion and garlic
In a large pot, or an instant pot on the sauté setting, melt the 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Once it is melted, add the onion. Cook the onion until it is soft and translucent. I add the garlic and cook it only until it is fragrant. If you let your garlic brown, it will create a bitter flavor.
Step 3: Add the tomato and spices
Next, add the can of tomatoes, bone broth, the bay leaf, salt, and pepper. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook about an hour so the flavors can come together.
Step 4: Puree and enjoy your easy classic tomato soup
Finally, your soup is ready to be pureed. The easiest way to do this is with an immersion blender.
Remove the bay leaf and discard it. Puree the soup to your desired consistency and texture.
Top your warm soup with some plain kefir, olive oil, and croutons!
