Heirloom Tomato Soup

Well folks, we have officially made it out of the Polar Vortex and reached the amazing month of June!!! What is better than warm long summer days, trips to the beach and splashing in a pool? Summer foods, thats what!

While I love my parsnips and Brussels sprouts I am happy to leave them behind for some watermelon, peaches, asparagus and tomatoes!!!!

Today I am going to share with you one of my favorite recipes for Heirloom Tomato Soup. It is delicious and simple to cook! Can't ask for something better than that.

Let's jump in...

Heirloom Tomato Soup

Serving Size - 4 large bowls, or 8 smaller servings


  • 3.5 pounds heirloom tomatoes, chopped

  • 4 shallots, chopped

  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 t oregano

  • 1 t basil

  • 1 t parsley

  • ½ t salt

  • fresh ground pepper

  • fresh basil, julienned for topping

  • ½ cup feta or goat cheese for topping


Place a large pot on the stove over medium-high heat add oil. Once warm add shallots and garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes to the pot and remaining seasoning. Stir all of the ingredients and cover pot and let simmer for 20-30 minutes until tomatoes break down.

Once tomatoes break down, let cool slightly and pour into vitamix or blender and blend until well mixed and garlic and shallots are broken down.

Serve in a bowl or mug topped with cheese and basil, or place the cheese at the bottom of the bowl so it melts into the soup as you pour.

That’s it! Now go and pick up some tomatoes and impress yourself, some friends or family! Enjoy this soup as an appetizer, or paired with a grilled cheese for a #MeatlessMonday treat!
