Creamy Keto Tomato Basil Soup

Keto Tomato Basil Soup

yield: 6 SERVINGS

prep time: 30 MINUTES

cook time: 20 MINUTES

total time: 50 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 7-8 medium size tomatoes (should be around 4 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste (if you are wanting a stronger tomato taste, you can add an additional tablespoon)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional, if you are wanting a thicker soup)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2

Slice tomatoes into quarter size pieces and place them on the baking sheet. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder over tomatoes and roast for 20 minutes.

3

Remove from oven and allow tomatoes to cool off for 10 minutes before adding to the blender.

4

After cooling, add tomatoes and any juice that has extracted into a blender. Purée tomatoes until smooth. This should take 30-40 seconds. For the creamiest texture possible, strain the tomato purée into a medium-size saucepan.

5

Simmer the tomato purée over low heat on the stove.

6

Add broth, tomato paste, butter, and heavy whipping cream to the purée and continue to simmer for 20 minutes, whisking occasionally to prevent scorching.

7

After simmering, give the soup a quick taste (careful, it will be hot!) and determine if additional salt is needed to suit your preferences. Add in fresh basil and serve. Enjoy!

keto tomato basil soup on spoon

Keto soups to warm the soul!

We’re taking on a classic, but making it ketofied! This rich keto tomato soup only requires a few ingredient swaps to make it low carb, but still oh so satisfying. And our take on the classic adds in basil for a bold flavor with a creamy texture that will taste like you spent hours in the kitchen stewing, but luckily, it is a very easy recipe!

Hip Recipe Tips:

    • To ensure a smooth and creamy texture, strain your tomato purée before adding into the saucepan. This will eliminate all skins from the tomatoes that did not get puréed.
    • For a thicker consistency, add in 1-2 teaspoons of xanthan gum to the soup.
    • Turn it up a notch with crumbled bacon bits, cheddar cheese, or sour cream dolloped on top.

    Hi, I just read this recipe and I am floating on air. I love cream of tomato soup and I can’t wait to try this recipe. I started Keto about 6 weeks ago and have already lost 13 pounds. I must admit canned tomato soup was my only cheat thing. But I’m writing because I have always added butter and pepper to my tomato soup. If you haven’t ever tried it, do it now. Just add about 1 tbl at a time and as it melts, get some of it and the soup on your spoon.

      Has anyone used canned tomatoes? Have some I need to use up

      • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

        Hi there! No we have not. ♥I would just be careful of the ingredients & make sure there is no added sugars. You can upload the ingredients in carb manager to get a more accurate carb count with your modifications! Let us know how it turns out!

  2. Teresia

    Has anyone used a food processor instead of the blender to puree the cooked tomatoes? Or used an emersion blender? I’m wondering if that would change the texture as I don’t have a standard blender.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Teresia! An immersion blender would work great! Just be sure to peel the skin off the tomatoes first OR strain it as suggested above.

    I have Kirkland Organic Tomato Paste 6 oz cans – no added sugar. How much would I need for this recipe?

  5. kamketo

    Made this, I used the Kirkland Organic Tomato Paste but it tastes like vodka sauce which my kids love ai they’ll be having some with paata.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for following up and telling us! Glad the kids love it!
