Fresh Tomato Soup Recipe – Gluten Free
Whether you’re gluten-intolerant or simply prefer to avoid wheat products, fresh tomato soup is one delicious meal that’s easy to make without gluten. There’s no comfort food quite like a hot cup of tomato soup, and it’s even better if a gluten-free garlic cheese pull-apart monkey bread is accompanying it. It’s simple, soothing and savory.
Rather than cracking open a can of soup — which may or may not contain gluten, but will definitely contain unhealthy levels of salt and other preservatives — opt to make your own from scratch.
It’s deceptively easy, and it’ll impress guests and picky children. All you have to do is add a few simple ingredients into a pot, pour into the blender and the gluten-free tomato soup is ready.
Tomato soup is great for winter, times of illness, or when you just want dinner without any frills. It’s easy on the palate, and it’s easily customizable. If you like your soup bland, make it bland.
If you love spice, your soup can be as hot and peppery as you like. You can also easily customize the amount of salt when you make your own soup.
Can I add cream to the tomato soup?
If you would like this to be a creamy tomato soup, you can add cream. To do this without curdling the cream, warm the cream up separately and add it to the blender with the soup. Once mixed, heat the soup gently to no more than 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
Or, keep the soup plant-based by adding coconut milk. If you are adding cream, reduce the broth from 2 1/2 cups to 2 cups, and add 1/2 cup of cream.
What type of fresh tomato is best for soup?
The best tomatoes for fresh tomato soup are ripe tomatoes like the plum varieties Roma or San Marzano. If you like a sweeter soup, use cherry tomatoes.
Why are cooked tomatoes healthier?
As per Cornell food scientists, research demonstrates that heat processing actually enhanced the nutritional value of tomatoes by increasing the lycopene content — a phytochemical that makes tomatoes red that can be absorbed by the body, as well as the total antioxidant activity.
