Ingredients homemade tomato basil soup
The best part about this tomato basil soup recipe is how simple the ingredients are. We’re using all fresh ingredients that still create an incredible flavor and texture. This tomato basil soup is wonderfully creamy without any cream or dairy (making it vegan and dairy free too)! Here’s what you’ll need:

Fresh tomatoes: roasting the tomatoes helps them to sweeten and slightly caramelize leading to a sweet, rich tomato soup flavor.
Garlic: let’s not forget about how delicious roasted garlic is. The sweet, lick-your-finger good flavor is essential to this recipe — and it’s easy to roast right alongside the tomatoes.
Fresh basil leaves: basil has a slightly sweet flavor and should be added to the recipe before serving, as too much heat can remove its flavor and sometimes turn it slightly bitter. This herb also helps to cut the acidity of the tomatoes.
Onions: this was one thing I did that was a little different was the addition of caramelized onions! Once they’re caramelized, they’re blended right into the soup. AMAZING!
Additional soup add-ins: I like to use vegetable broth, but feel free to use chicken broth or even water if you’d like. You’ll also want some dried oregano and plenty of salt & pepper.
Optional add-ins: I’ve included optional ingredients that you can add to the soup to make it your own in the ingredients below! If you’d like, this is your chance to get a little creative.
Personally, I like to top it off with shaved or grated parmesan cheese and a little extra basil. Sometimes we’ll also stir in a can of light coconut milk for a creamy sweetness. SO GOOD!

What tomatoes are best for homemade tomato soup?
I like to use plum or roma tomatoes for homemade tomato soup because they have the best flavor when roasted. I recommend using garden fresh or organic to keep the soup as flavorful as possible!
Should you peel the tomatoes?
I typically leave the skin on the tomatoes and keep the seeds in as well, but feel free to remove both if you’d like. It’s really about your preference.
