- 10 Tomatoes
- 2 Medium Onions
- 4 Garlic Cloves
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1/3 Cup Fresh Basil
- Pinch of Salt & Pepper
- The first thing to do is half your tomatoes and quarter your onions. Once you have all your tomatoes and onions properly cut, you can add them into a large bowl and throw in your cloves of garlic.
- Now add oil and season to perfection with salt and pepper. You will need to stir this mixture well to coat everything and get it tasting just right.
- Next, pour your vegetables onto a baking sheet and then put them in the oven and roast them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes straight. This is going to really saturate the vegetables and bring out all their best flavors.
- After 30 minutes, remove the sheet from the oven and let it stand and cool for 5 or 10 minutes.
- Now you can place all the roasted vegetables into your Blendtec blender, add the basil overtop, and blend the entire mixture until smooth and creamy. It should resemble tomato soup by this point.
- Finally, add a pinch of salt and pepper if you feel it necessary, then you can heat the soup on the stove if you want it piping hot. All that’s left is to serve your soup and enjoy it.

The only thing you need for making this delicious tomato soup is your powerful Blendtec blender. Simply put in the ingredients, turn on the blender, and let the friction of the blades do the rest of the work for you. This soup is rich and creamy, and it doesn’t require a drop of dairy.
In fact, this recipe only requires a few ingredients from your pantry, and it only takes a handful of ingredients to make.
- ¼ Cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 Garlic Clove
- ½ Onion
- ½ Teaspoon Dried Oregano
- ½ Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
- 1 Slice White Bread (No Crusts)
- 1 Can Peeled Tomatoes
- 1 Cup Water
- Pinch of Salt & Pepper
- Minced Basil
- Start by combining the olive oil, your half onion, your garlic clove, the oregano, the red pepper flakes, your slice of bread torn into chunks, your cup of water, and your can of peeled tomatoes along with the juices into your powerful Blendtec blender.
- Turn on the blender at its lowest setting and then gradually increase the speed until you hit maximum. You then need to blend your soup until it is steaming hot. This can take about four minutes of solid blending. The friction of the blades will heat the soup for you, while at the same time making it smooth and creamy.
- Once your soup is the proper texture, take off the lid and season with salt and pepper until you have the perfect taste.
- If you would like an even smoother soup, you can use a mesh strainer to strain the soup before you serve.
- Don’t forget to add some garnish, which is where the minced basil comes in, before you serve. You may also use other herbs to garnish the soup, and you can drizzle olive oil over it.
- If you don’t want the soup to be hot, you can chill it in the fridge and then serve cold.
