Tomato Soup


This simple recipe for delicious tomato soup is part of the Kirkland Signature Martha Stewart product line, available at Costco.

  • Yield: Makes 6 cups

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, January Winter 2008


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 24 ounces canned whole plum tomatoes
  • 3 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring, until onions have softened, about 15 minutes.

  2. Add tomatoes, chicken stock, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook until tomatoes, onions, and garlic are soft, 10 to 20 minutes.

  3. Working in batches, transfer soup to the jar of a blender and puree until smooth. Return to saucepan and place over medium heat. Cook until soup is heated through. If soup seems too thick, stir in some extra stock to thin. Serve immediately.

    Hello Martha Stewart. Amazing! I added some sugar in the tomato soup. It was too delicious. The tomato soup is awesome, perfect fall treat.

    I thought this soup was a little onion-y but it still tasted really good. I'll definitely make it again. Now I need to find a good recipe for minestrone - I've tried a bunch and don't like any of them....

    I used olive oil instead of butter, fresh tomatoes instead of canned, veg stock instead of chicken, only half an onion, seasoned with dried basil. And go get yourself an immersion blender, it's so much safer! Very delicious!

    Outstanding! I added a little sugar, but that's just my preference. I used 2 cups of chopped sweet onions. I wasn't sure how big a medium onion should be, so I researched it, and the consensus is that a medium onion = 1 cup chopped.

    I carmelized the onions to a deep golden color instead of the quick method in the recipe, and I threw in a handful of fresh basil before putting it all in the blender. Delicious! My kids love it.

    Perfect tomato soup for this lactose-intolerant girl! I do add some dill at the very end for a special taste. Even my husband who doesn't need to avoid dairy has requested this soup! Lovely!

    It won't taste like onions if you carmelize the onions, and carmelized onions don't taste like an onion. It takes longer than 15 minutes though to do this. More like 25 minutes. Then it is an excellent soup.

    This should have been called Onion Soup. Even after cutting back on the onions and adding more tomatoes, the taste was still way too heavy on the onions. I will definitely keep searching for the best Tomato Soup recipe.
