Easy Vitamix Tomato Soup Recipe

This easy blender tomato soup is made with canned whole tomatoes, meaning it can even be made in the deep, dark days of winter. 

I prefer whole tomatoes (San Marzano if you can find them) or simple Roma tomatoes over diced because they have a sweeter flavor and are less processed since they don’t go through the dicing process. Canned tomatoes I recommend:

Fresh tomatoes for Vitamix tomato soup

If it is summertime and your garden is bursting with fresh tomatoes, by all means, use those! Nothing beats fresh ingredients in any recipe. I recommend steaming or boiling them and removing the skin for a smooth and creamy soup.

You can also roast fresh tomatoes to give them more flavor by cutting them in half, placing them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet drizzling them with olive oil (fresh herbs if you like), and baking at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes.

How to make Vitamix Tomato Soup

This is probably the easiest soup recipe you will ever make! It comes together in minutes, tastes amazing, and is made with good wholesome ingredients.

all ingredients in blender ready to mix
  1. Place the tomatoes (with their juices), broth, shallot, garlic, thyme, basil, and tomato paste in a blender (use a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix, if you have one). Season with salt and pepper.

2. Turn the machine on and gradually increase the speed to reach high speed. Blend until completely smooth (about one to two minutes). If using a Vitamix, continue blending until the soup is hot and heavy steam escapes from the lid plug, for about 6 minutes (or, turn on the soup setting).

3. After the soup is hot add heavy cream (to taste) to the soup. A little cream goes a long way! If using a high-speed blender, blend until warmed through, about 5 seconds.

Hint: This soup can be completely blended AND cooked in a VITAMIX(!!). If you don’t have one you can blend it up in a regular blender or food processor then simmer the soup on the stove. 

Using a regular blender and stove top method:

If you’re using a regular blender, transfer the soup to a pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Then add heavy cream and stir for another few minutes.

Substitutions

There is only a swirl of heavy cream in this recipe. If you are dairy free you can use cashew cream or other non-dairy milk.

Variations

Try this recipe as is the first time you make it and try a variation the next time you try it.

  • Spicy – add chili pepper flakes to add some heat to the soup.
  • Deluxe – add some caramelized onions, sautéed onions, or extra minced garlic for more flavor.
  • Kid-friendly – make a delicious grilled cheese sandwich with classic cheddar cheese and your kids will run to grab a bowl of tomato soup to dip it!

Vitamix Tomato Soup

Vitamix is one of my favorite appliances.

It’s powerful enough to make everything from nut butter, dips, and smoothies to hot soups and batters.

The best part is you don’t even have to transfer the soup to the stove. If you blend the tomato soup for several minutes, it heats it for you. It is perfect for this easy Vitamix tomato soup recipe.

Just dump in the ingredients, turn it on, and let friction do the work for you. This soup gets a rich, creamy texture from the emulsion of olive oil and tomatoes. You don’t even have to add cream if you are sensitive to dairy.

Storage

Store the soup in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat in microwave or stovetop stirring occasionally while heating.

What to serve with Easy Vitamix Tomato Soup

This soup pairs well with a homemade pesto grilled cheese. Use homemade pesto and mozzarella cheese to make a twist on a grilled cheese sandwich. I promise dunking this pesto grilled cheese in this tomato soup is sensational!

My children prefer a pesto and mozzarella grilled cheese to the traditional. I hope you can try it too!

  1. I recently tried a delicious combination of soup with Pita Chips , and it was a delightful experience! The warm, comforting soup paired perfectly with the crunchy texture of the Pita chips. Each bite was a delightful blend of flavors and textures, making it a satisfying and comforting meal. It’s definitely a combination I’ll be enjoying again soon!






  2. I’ve made this recipe a few times now. Since I make enough to freeze, I usually use chicken broth instead of the cream so it doesn’t separate later. The last time I roasted the tomatoes and added a good bit of basil at the end. Delicious!! What kind of cheese did you use for the Pesto grilled cheese sandwich in addition to the pesto, mozzarella, provolone, something else?






    1. Happy you loved it! Ooops, it looks like you hit the 1 star instead of th 5, do you mind fixing it? Thank you! Yes, I just make a simple pesto grilled cheese like you described! I rub the outside of the bread with butter of olive oil to get a nice crunch. Enjoy!

  3. I made the soup, but I used 5 Roma tomatoes instead of the canned ones. I substituted the heavy cream with a mixture of flaxseed milk (I am lactose intolerant) and EVOO. The shallots, I did not have any and I used 1 teaspoon of onion powder instead. followed the recipe and it was still delish!!!






  4. This recipe is fast and fabulous- I worked with what I had around the house. I was out of basil so did a dollop of pesto and added about 1/2 cup fire roasted red bell pepper. I only had half and half on hand to add a velvety creamy texture and it all came together in the Vitamix!
