Old-fashioned tomato soup is the ultimate comfort food. Our version, which calls for canned San Marzano tomatoes and a quick purée with an immersion blender, is easy, too: It requires a small amount of patience but delivers an enormously soothing payoff. Garnish with crunchy, delicious Basic Croutons. Needless to say, great tomato soup cries out for a perfect grilled cheese sandwich.
What to buy: San Marzanos are a plum tomato variety with thick flesh, relatively few seeds, and a sweeter, less acidic flavor than other tomato varieties. Canned San Marzanos imported from Italy have consistently good flavor. They’re widely available at supermarkets and Italian groceries.
A versatile immersion blender is a quick and easy way to make this soup.See It ›
You will love the pairing of this Italian treasure we found in the 2013 La Fusina Dogliani with this rich and hearty tomato soup. This Nebbiolo-based Dulcetto grape adds the right amount of concentrated fruit and a lean palate that won't overpower the savory flavors. We know how well Italian wines pair with tomato-based dishes, and this wine not only elevates the flavors in the soup, it's a great complement to grilled cheese also.Shop on Glassful ›
