Creamy tomato soup

We made our newly favorite grilled cheese sandwiches, and tried out this tomato soup recipe. We have always picked up Trader Joe's roasted red pepper & tomato soup, but this creamy version was easy and tasted amazing! It is slightly thicker (which we like), and flavorful. Definitely a notch above your traditional soup (in a can).


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 14.5-oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 10.75-oz can condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 3/4 cup milk (we used skim)
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 8-oz package cream cheese, cubed (we used 1/3 fat)


  1. In a large saucepan on medium low heat, saute onion in butter until tender (10-15 minutes). 
  2. Stir in tomatoes, soup, milk, sugar, basil, paprika and garlic powder.
  3. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. 
  4. Stir in cream cheese until melted.
  5. If you want a smoother texture, use an immersion blender.
  6. Serve immediately.
Yield: 4 servings (1 quart).
