Tomato Artichoke Soup

Tomato Artichoke Soup

This soup is one of those great little cooking secrets. Serve it to company, and they’ll think you spent hours perfecting the flavor. Really though, it takes less than 30 minutes to make.

The tomato soup is fancied up just enough by the artichokes – tasty, but not pretentious. If you have any bread laying around, whip up some croutons and a salad, and you have yourself a meal! Many thanks to our friend Meredith, who first made this for us.


Tomato Artichoke Soup

What You Need
28 oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
15 oz can artichokes
1 cup water
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion
1 clove garlic
3 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil

What To Do

1  Chop 1 large onion and 1 clove garlic. In a large soup pot, heat 2 tablespoons butter. Sauté the onions, garlic, and 3 bay leaves until the onions are translucent.

2  Chop the artichokes into smaller pieces. In the soup pot, add the artichokes, tomatoes, 1 cup of water, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon basil. Simmer for 10 minutes.

3  Using an immersion blender (or blender if necessary), blend the soup to a smooth consistency. Add 1 cup milk.  Top with croutons and a little parmesan and serve immediately.

    This was a perfect weeknight dinner on a cold January night. I added a poached egg on top of each serving and thick slices of wheat bread to make it into a meal. Thanks for the great recipe!

    This comment is long over-do.

    I asked for an immersion blender for Christmas specifically to make this soup – and I’ve made it at least 5 times now (making it tonight, as well) and every time it is wonderful. The artichokes add such a depth of flavor that most tomato soups lack.

    I made it as part of a dinner (accompanied by grilled cheese, of course!) as a thank-you for a friend. She told me my (your) soup ended her quest for the perfect tomato soup. Thanks!!!!

    I am an artichoke fanatic, enthusiast, LOVER! Anything with artichokes.. count me in! When I saw this recipe, I knew that I would love it. Although I didn’t have a blender to mix up the soup into a smooth texture. So, chunky it was. And it was GoooooooD!
