Recipe Notes

Good news, to make this tomato soup gluten-free, I selected ingredients that are naturally gluten-free, ensuring that this easy recipe can be safely savored by individuals with celiac disease or those adhering to a gluten-free diet.

  • Fresh tomatoes: I’m using Strass tomatoes, but you can use any ripe, meaty tomato variety you can find. If you can find San Marzano tomatoes, you’re in luck, they have a delicious flavor and will enhance the soup’s Mediterranean flavor profile.
  • Fresh garlic cloves, peeled and pressed.
  • Coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil, whichever you prefer.
  • Canned coconut milk. 
  • Apple cider vinegar.
  • Chicken broth or chicken stock. 
  • Homemade is the best, but good-quality store-bought is fine too.
  • Fresh basil leaves.
  • Salt and black pepper to taste.

See the recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements 👇

Substitutions & Variations

  • Fresh whole tomatoes are always preferable, but if you can’t find them or they’re particularly expensive at the moment, you can make this homemade soup using canned tomatoes. Just ensure you’re using BPA-free ones and organic varieties if possible.
  • Beef broth can be substituted if desired.
  • For a vegan rendition of the soup, use vegetable stock.
  • To make the soup keto-friendly, replace the coconut milk with coconut cream or heavy cream.

Expert Tips 👩‍🍳

  1. Select the right tomatoes: For the most flavorful soup, choose ripe tomatoes that are slightly soft to the touch. San Marzano tomatoes are ideal for their sweetness and acidity, but any ripe, meaty variety will work well.
  2. Adjust the seasonings to your taste: The amount of salt, pepper, and vinegar you add to the soup will depend on your personal preferences. Taste the soup as you go and adjust the seasonings accordingly.
  3. Use a high-powered food processor for a smooth texture: A high-powered blender will ensure that the soup is completely smooth and has a creamy texture. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you can use a regular immersion blender, but you may need to blend the soup in batches.

How to serve

  • Grilled Cheese Sandwiches: Enjoy a bowl of hot soup with a gluten-free grilled cheese sandwich. The warm, melty cheese blends perfectly with the crispy gluten-free bread, creating a satisfying and flavorful combination.
  • Gluten-Free Croutons: Add a delicious crunch to any creamy soup or salad with gluten-free croutons. Simply toss cubed gluten-free bread or baguette with olive oil, herbs, and spices, and bake until golden brown. These croutons provide a flavorful and textured contrast to any dish.

🥙 Refrigerate

This delicious gluten-free tomato soup can be prepared ahead of time, ensuring convenience and flexibility. Once the soup has cooled to room temperature, securely seal it in an airtight container or a mason jar and place it in the refrigerator. The soup will retain its freshness for up to 3-4 days.

For a quick lunch, simply reheat the soup from the refrigerator.

❄️ Freeze

Alternatively, freeze the soup in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months, allowing you to enjoy a warm bowl of soup whenever you desire. 

To thaw the frozen soup, remove it from the freezer and place it in the refrigerator overnight. Once thawed, transfer the soup to a saucepan and gently heat it until it reaches a simmer.
