Homemade Tomato Soup

Tomatoes to Use for Your Homemade Soup

You can use any type of tomatoes you want. For this recipe, we use beefsteak tomatoes. However, you can use Roma tomatoes, or a few hands full of grape or cherry tomatoes.

  1. Hi Torey, The Tomato Soup looks yummy. Could you please clarify a photo vs the recipe: The photo shows a bulb of garlic laying on top of the sheet pan of tomatoes but the recipe calls for one clove of garlic. Thanks, Ellen

    • Hi Ellen! Sorry for the confusion! For all of my recipes, you’ll definitely follow the written recipe inside the recipe card. Sometimes you’ll see extra “stuff” in photos (like the extra garlic) and it’s for aesthetics! You can certainly add more garlic to your soup if you’d like, but perhaps an entire bulb would be pretty potent! LOL
