Tomato Parmesan Soup

Here's the Dish

Creamy, slightly sweet, slightly salty…Those are the words that I would use to describe this soup.When I was little, one of the most common meals my mom would make for my sisters and I was grilled cheese with warm tomato soup. This soup brings me straight back to my childhood, but is so much better tasting (and better for you) than any of the¬†canned stuff. The veggies pack this soup with nutrients, and the salty-nutty flavors of the parmesan cheese shine with the sweetness of the tomatoes. I’m telling you, this soup is pure comfort food on a chilly day!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 45-50 minutes.


Place everything (except for the milk, dried spices, and parmesan cheese) in a large pot and cook on med high 30 min covered, then turn heat down to low and cook an additional 15 minutes, or until veggies are tender and soup is thickened up to your liking.

Turn heat off, and while soup is still hot, add milk, parmesan cheese, and dried spices. Stir to combine everything, and serve warm!


1(12 oz) Cans diced tomatoes, with basil garlic and oregano
1(12 oz) Cans crushed tomatoes, with basil garlic and oregano
3/4 cups Celery, chopped
3/4 cup Carrots, chopped
1/2 cupWhite onion, chopped fine
2 cupsChicken broth
1 cupAlmond milk, or skim milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 tspDried oregano
1/2 tspDried basil
1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Optional:Salt, pepper, and stevia (for a bit of sweetness) to taste

Katie's Tip!

Make this soup ahead of time, and freeze it in batches. Microwave it until warm to have a single serving of delicious and healthy soup ready in minutes!

I am really enjoying your website. Thank you for your testimony and the tips. I love cooking healthy for my family…and see it both as a spiritual and physical discipline. I was wondering if you ever put how many servings your recipes make–that helps me know portion control. I can’t seem to find servings amounts on the recipes–am I missing it? Thanks again so much and God bless!

So…this is really TWO cans of the diced tomatoes with basil and oregano? Can you substitute vegetable or seafood broth for the chicken broth? Have you tried it?

Is the parmesan cheese grated from a block of cheese or can you use store-bought? And is the nutrition info based on Almond milk?

when you add milk at the end should the milk be warm or is it okay cold?
