Why we love it:

What’s better than a steaming bowl of tomato soup with something crispy cheesy and bready to dip in it? Make your favorite grilled cheese here - perhaps a cheese quesadilla, or open face baguette as pictured, maybe make croutons, or go super white-bread classic.


  • 1 Yellow Onion (small, peeled and quartered)
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 2 cups Vegetable Stock (or chicken stock, or water)
  • 1 28-ounce can Crushed Tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 12 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Half & Half (or whatever you have)

Cooking Instructions


    Peel and dice the onion. Mince the garlic clove.

    In a large pot or dutch oven, heat the olive oil and saute the onion, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper until everything is fragrant and translucent, about 6 minutes.


    Add the stock and can of tomatoes. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Cook for at least 10 minutes and up to 30.


    Meanwhile, make your preferred cheesy bread component. A grilled cheese works or go open face as we've shown here.

  • 4. BLEND

    Transfer the soup to a blender or use a stick blender if you have one. Add the half&half while blending so it doesn't clump and blend until smooth.

    Now, transfer this back to a pot. Place over medium heat and bring to a gentle simmer. Taste the soup. You may prefer another pinch of salt or pepper.

  • 5. SERVING

    Ladle into bowls and serve with open cheesy bread. If you have fresh herbs they make for a nice topping.

    only the toast has wheat, so either use GF bread or omit it and serve with a salad
    use 1 can of coconut milk, cashew milk, almond milk or soy milk. Or just add a cup of water or stock while the tomatoes are heating up
    we find this is the perfect level of creaminess. But if you have whole milk on hand, use that. Or heavy cream. Or, you could even add ½ cup of sour cream or greek yogurt while blending. Make your dipping toast without cheese for just garlic bread. Or smear the bread with pesto and bake that
    instead of tomatoes, use a head of cauliflower. Same method otherwise. Or use 1 pound of peeled carrots and a knob of ginger. Or try with 1 pound of broccoli. Consider adding grated cheddar while soup is heating up after blending
    you can change the flavor - add 1 Tablespoon garam masala, or a pinch of za'atar. Maybe add dried rosemary or thyme. A pinch of ground ginger and turmeric will give you that Golden Milk vibe
