This cheesy tomato soup is like a mashup of a grilled cheese and tomato soup, keto style! Have you ever thought about putting the cheese IN the tomato soup?

It’s an epic idea that turned out perfect! This soup is rich, creamy, cheesy, and all around great. It stores really well so it’s awesome as a meal-prep idea, especially in these cooler winter months. Bonus, that it’s ready in less than 20 minutes!

Tomato soup is my favorite. I always add a lot of pepper to it, I like very intense flavor. Your recipe is very good, today it made me delicious for dinner. Thanks for that, he adds to the favorites.


I made this soup today. It was very easy to make and had a great flavour.
Thank you!


Thank you Diane!


This is a favorite with my hubby!  Last time I made it I added a bit of fresh grated ginger and the basil.


Thank you Barbara, I wouldn't have thought of ginger, will have to try!


Would I be able to use fresh tomatoes instead of tinned?


You can use fresh tomatoes but I personally prefer tinned because they are peeled. Sometimes the skin doesn't all get blended. Ot you can use fresh tomatoes and peel the skin off. I do that by placing whole uncut tomatoes in a sauce pan and pouring boiling water over them. Then I let them soften for 30-60 minutes, drain them and then they peel easily 😊


My family absolutely loved this.  It is so flavorful.  And really easy to make.  Perfect for a busy weekday dinner.  The next day we added broccoli to the leftovers.  Delicious!


Thank you Krissie!


Can I freeze this reciepe?


Yes, you can freeze this soup for up to about 3 months.


Lauren - I have a question about the crushed tomatoes - is it 2 cans for a total of 28 ounces or 2 cans that total 28 ounces?  Thank you.  Beth


Hi Beth, it's 28 oz (800 g) total, ie 2 regular 14-oz cans or 1 large 28-oz can. I hope this helps!
