Looking through my archives over the last 8 years, I cannot believe that I haven't shared a tomato soup recipe! That's crazy! I make tomato soup all the time, especially in the summer. We grow our own tomatoes, and some years, there are a ton. One way that we enjoy using our tomatoes up is to make a big pot of tomato soup or tomato bisque.

As you know, tomatoes can be very juicy and watery, and I’ve learned a couple of tricks to help with that. First, I use roma tomatoes which are less juicy than other varieties. I added a couple of roma plants in my garden last year (and will definitely do that every year) because they are way better for cooking than any other variety. The second tip works no matter what kind of tomato you are using: roast your tomatoes and other vegetables. Roasting tomatoes helps to bring out their naturally sweet flavor and dries up some of the liquid so you can have a nice, rich soup.

I have made this soup so many different ways: adding a bunch of fresh basil for a tomato basil soup, not blending it for a chunkier variety and adding plain Greek yogurt for a creamier soup. Since we are blending this soup, do me a favor and leave the skins on, okay? The skins are packed with vitamins and I hate to waste them. When you roast and blend the skins, I promise you won't notice them.

Pair this easy tomato soup with either a grilled cheese sandwich, grilled cheese croutons or a crusty delicious bread for an awesome, comforting meal. This soup is actually very easy and can be made in a small or large quantities, and even canned or frozen tomatoes. It is loaded with flavor from roasted garlic, onions and basil. Yum!

To ensure that I got a well-blended soup, I used the NutriBullet Balance nutrient extractor. Have you ever used your phone to literally help you make a recipe? I haven't until now and wow… the technology is amazing! All you need to do is open the NutriBullet Balance app on your smartphone and Bluetooth will link to your Nutribullet. You can setup your dislikes, allergies, and preferences on the app. Then, a bunch of recipe ideas will come up that you can choose from based on your interests! They have recipes for smoothies, soups, salad dressings, dips, and desserts.

The app will tell you which ingredients and how much to add to the nutrient extractor in the right order. You won't even need a measuring cup as the sensor will tell you when you've added enough. As you add the ingredients, the nutrition information will be calculated in real time.

It will automatically set the blend time for the right consistency based on what you are blending. It will update the nutrition information to a fitness app of your choice as well. It comes with two colossal cups to blend in and flip-top to-go lids. What an awesome product for the person in your life who is tech-savvy and loves to be healthy!

For this recipe, I decided to create my own recipe on the app. It allowed me to type how much of each ingredient that I was putting in and calculated the nutrition information. It was so crazy starting to blend the soup right from my phone! So awesome! The app was easy to use and I can't wait to try all of the awesome smoothie recipes on there! I got some awesome ideas scrolling through them all.
