Homemade Cream of Tomato Soup with Ravioli| Easy Soup Recipes

There is nothing more satisfying on a cold winter day than a nice, hot cup of homemade soup. I make a lot of homemade soup and I generally look for easy soup recipes to save time in the kitchen. One of my favorite soups is cream of tomato soup but all the canned soups I find in the store contain sugar or high fructose corn syrup of some sort in them. I don’t want that in my homemade cream of tomato soup.

As much as I love cooking from scratch, I do take some shortcuts to save time. Yes, I could make my homemade cream of tomato soup from fresh tomatoes but I don’t have them in the middle of the winter. When I buy canned tomato products, the tomatoes have been canned at the peak of freshness. They haven’t been trucked halfway across the country from a warmer climate and left to sit in the grocery store for days before they’re purchased. When I do buy them fresh in the winter, they go bad before I have a chance to use them.

I started my homemade cream of tomato soup using Muir Glen Organic Tomato Paste. I love Muir Glen products and pick them up weekly at our local Shaws grocery store. They have everything from canned tomato products to soup and spaghetti sauce. One can of tomato paste is the perfect size to make this soup for two people. If you’re feeding more, just double or triple the recipe. Remember when you’re done to recycle the metal can!

Homemade Cream of Tomato Soup with Ravioli
 
Author:
Recipe type: soup
Ingredients
  • 1 can of Muir Glen Organic Tomato Paste
  • 4 cans of the milk of your choice
  • ½ tsp celery powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Frozen ravioli of your choice
Instructions
  1. Put the milk and Muir Glen Organic Tomato Paste in a pot and stir well.
  2. Add the salt, pepper and celery powder and stir.
  3. Heat on medium heat until warmed through.
  4. Add cooked ravioli to the soup when served.
  5. Top with additional cheese or basil if you like.

This is an amazing soup to enjoy on a cold day.  By keeping Muir Glen Organic Tomato Paste in the cupboard all the time, I can enjoy it any time I want whether I happen to have fresh tomatoes on hand or not. Canned food helps waste less food, saving time and money. It also helps reduce our impact on the environment. Did you know that Americans throw away 15 percent to 20 percent of the fresh fruits and vegetables they purchase every year? I had no idea!

Have you ever tried making your own celery powder? It tastes so much better in this soup than store bought.

  1. This sounds amazing! I make a “tomato soup and noodles” bowl at least once a week – just macaroni noodles with tomato soup from a can. I’ve always used cream and milk to make my soup – can’t stand it made with just water. But this is SUCH an easy way to make “real” tomato soup, love it! And I don’t know why I never thought of adding ravioli. Tortelli would probably be yummy too! Thanks!

  2. This looks super yummy. ♥ I avoid canned “cream of” soups like the plague, so this is a great recipe for us.

  3. Looks great and super-easy! Need to spice it up a little with some garlic or peppers though!

  4. I love making a good, hearty soup. My kids would eat this in a heartbeat, minus the ravioli (more for me).  I’ve always heard that Muir Glen Organic tomatoes are the best.

  5. This looks delicious! we make homemade soups quite frequently and always have Muir Glen in the pantry!
