What Kind of Tomatoes Should You Use?
There are a few options when making homemade soup with fresh tomatoes. Whole tomatoes, roasted tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, or even tomato paste can all work well as a base. To add more flavor to your tomato base, use garlic cloves, red pepper, and yellow onion to create a delicious and nutritious puree.
To make the tomato puree, sauté the garlic, bell pepper, and onion in olive oil until soft and fragrant. Add tomatoes and cook everything down until it's thick and jammy.
You can balance out the acidity of the tomatoes with some chicken broth or chicken stock. If you prefer, vegetable stock or vegetable broth are also great options.
The great thing about making tomato puree is that you can experiment with different veggies, spices, and bone broth flavors to create unique flavor profiles. And since you can make it in batches, you'll always have some on hand to use in various recipes, including this easy tomato soup recipe.
