This simple skinny tomato soup is exactly what it says on the tin. Except it’s not from a tin!

OK, so you do use tins of tomatoes to make the soup but otherwise the rest of the contents (and there are few) are not from a tin they’re just basic kitchen staples.

This simple skinny tomato soup is one of our top comfort foods.

It’s packed full of antioxidants linked to slowing down the aging process.

It serves as an excellent source of vitamin A, important for tissue development and vitamin C, helping to keep our cells healthy.

Plus it’s cholesterol free!

Not surprising then that it’s one of our favourite soups eh? 🙂

  3. Bring the soup mixture to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Blitz the soup mixture with a food processor / a liquidiser or blender.
  5. Stir in the corn flour mixture and stirring every now and then allow the soup to simmer and thicken, roughly 5 minutes.
  6. Season to taste and then ladle the soup into serving bowls and garnish with the basil leaves.
Recipe Notes

You can use low fat calorie spray instead of the olive oil which would decrease the calories further. I like to use olive oil myself to keep the soup “authentic”.

This soup is ideal for freezing.

In Scotland at the time of me writing this we are being battered by storms and heavy snow.

You can imagine how warming and consoling a bowl of this simple skinny tomato soup is, especially with some freshly baked wholemeal bread.

I’m a huge fan of soup and so is Jo at Jo’s kitchen so I am linking up with her #SuperSoup Linky.

    Love this soup, but am just wondering exactly how much soup is in each serving?

    • says:

      Hi Claire. Thanks so much for your kind comment.

      The recipe card provides details as to the number of servings, which is 4 servings for this soup. When I make this, following the exact quantities in the recipe card, it generally makes approximately 300ml – 400ml per serving. Hope this helps! 🙂
