By

A collection of simple, healthy and easy homemade tomato soup recipes including ways to add flavor to canned tomato soup, gourmet sun-dried tomato soup, low-fat tomato soups and more.

1. Easy Chilled Tomato Basil Soup Recipe

Use the freshest, reddest, vine-ripe organic tomatoes you can find in this tomato soup recipe, as with little extra added flavor, it's a great way to show them off. Same with the balsamic vinegar and olive oil - if you've got a top-notch bottle sitting in your cupboard, this is the time to use it! For a bumper crop of fresh tomatoes sitting in your garden, this tomato soup recipe will do you well.

2. Quick and Easy Tomato Rice Soup

Unlike other tomato soup recipes, this one starts with canned tomato sauce, and enlivens it with added ingredients to make this tomato soup semi-homemade, and to stretch your dollar a bit. This tomato soup recipe is a great way to use up that leftover rice or another whole grain that you've been staring at in your refrigerator.

3. Barley Tomato Soup with Vegetables

This meatless low-fat tomato soup recipe combines the best of all possible soups - barley soup, tomato soup and vegetable soup! It's a simple homemade soup recipe with basic ingredients for when you want a more filling tomato soup recipe that's more of a complete meal. I love the combination of barley with just about everything, and this tomato soup recipe is no exception. It's incredibly comforting, and filling enough for a full meal if paired with a salad or bread. The recipe calls for spinach, but I've also made it using Swiss chard, which is another excellent and nutritious green leafy vegetable.

4. Tuscan Sun-dried Tomato and Chickpea Soup

Ah, sun-dried tomatoes! Adding them to anything makes it instantly gourmet! Why not try sun-fried tomatoes in tomato soup? This recipe is simple yet elegant, and reminiscent of a traditional Italian Tuscan soup. Made with chickpeas, small shell pasta, rosemary and drizzled with a touch of olive oil, this vegetarian tomato soup can be an entire healthy meal.

5. Tempeh Tomato Soup

A garden vegetable soup recipe with carrots, onions and added tempeh to give it a protein boost for vegetarians, vegans and of course meatless Monday! For the kids, serve it with a vegan grilled cheese for a classic American lunch for vegetarians and vegans.

6. Quick Southwestern Tomato Soup

Another quick and easy homemade tomato soup recipe, this one using kidney beans, canned tomatoes and salsa, and topped off with tortilla chips and shredded cheese for a tex-mex influenced soup. It may not win any gourmet recipe awards, but if you're looking for a variation on tomato soup or a meal that can be prepared in minutes that the whole family will eat up, this is a good one to try.

7. Tomato Gazpacho Soup

Most gazpacho soup recipes are tomato-based, though some gourmet gazpacho recipes use cucumber, watermelon, grapefruit or avocado as a base. Gazpacho is a Spanish soup, served chilled, and is an excellent low-calorie starter for a dinner, and also work well served with bread for a light and healthy lunch. I love a cool gazpacho eaten outdoors on a warm summer evening.
