Creamy non cream tomato soup

tomato soup without cream


I had no cream in my fridge. I had bread and a can of tomatoes. I was hungry. So I made tomato soup with bread instead adding cream. It was delicious, very filling. My husband is addicted to bread in any form, so he also loved this soup. Here’s the recipe:

Type of dish: soup
Cost: cheap
Difficulty: easy
Time: 25min
Serves: 2-4
Preparation time: 3min
Cooking Time: 20 min
What you need to make this dish:
Cutting board, knife, wooden spoon, ladle, 2,5 l saucepan, hand blender

  • 1 can of tomatoes whole or chopped
  • 2 slice bread
  • 1,5l water
  • 1 garlic clove , smashed
  • 1 medium onion chopped coarsely
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Parsley dried or fresh
  • Juice from half of a lemon
  • 1 tsp castor sugar
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

How to prepare:
Turn on the stove on high, heat saucepan, pour in olive oil. When oil is hot, throw in onion, stir until transparent and soft, add garlic to cook, stir till garlic browns. Add canned tomatoes, lemon juice, bread, salt, pepper, parsley, sugar and stock cube. Stir well. Add water, stir again and reduce heat to half. Cover pot and leave for 14 minutes stirring occasionally. After that, take the pot off the stove, and using blender, blend until the soup is smooth. Serve in small bowls with basil leaves and a dash of olive oil on the top.

Additional information:
You can also add some grated cheese on the top (I added some sliced mini mozzarella), or if you can’t have tomato soup without cream, give it a dollop on top. If you like hot food, you can also add some tabasco sauce to the soup during blending. It’ll be just as good!
