The holidays are here! With it comes cold weather, warm fireplaces, time with family and friends, and one-pot-meals. I make soup every week during this season for a few reasons: it’s super easy and has minimal clean-up, it’s a great way to get a ton of veggies into one meal, and there is nothing better during the winter!

This easy, creamy, healthy tomato soup has been a staple in our house for the past few weeks. Smoked paprika and cumin round out the sweetness of the tomatoes in this recipe; which substitutes spices, a touch of milk, and bold flavors for the cream in traditional creamy tomato soups. When the folks at Hunt’s tomatoes reached out to me to spread a bit of holiday cheer using their Non-GMO tomatoes, I knew this recipe would be absolutely perfect.

I love Hunt’s tomatoes because they are Non-GMO, Organic and they are peeled using FlashSteam instead of chemicals, and they’re available at every retailer from Walmart to your local grocery store. And who can resist this cute tomato snowman? 🙂


Thanks to these tomatoes, we ended up with a rich and thick soup that was only 74 calories per serving!


I served it up with some asparagus sautéed with lemon and pecorino and goat cheese crostini (two very easy side dishes)

It took 13 minutes of hands-on time, and 30 minutes until the soup had finished simmering away. Delicious, nutritious, easy, and fast! The husband (who can be picky about tomato soups) loved it.

  1. Hi Anjali. Thanks for sharing great recipe. I already tried it – it was delicious and tasty. Tomato soup is the best option for me to keep me warm this winter season!

  2. I’ve been scouring the net this afternoon for soup recipes. It’s 30 degrees here in south Texas, which is not normal and not okay haha. This sounds pretty yummy, it may be the one.

    • Oh man! 30 degrees does not sound fun at all. I hope this soup warms you up! Let me know how you like it!

  3. These days are really cold in our city, so soups are great choices for dinner. I’ll try it as soon as possible. Thanks for your fresh ideas.
