One Pot Tomato Soup
This One Pot Tomato Soup is made with simple ingredients and is even more filling thanks to the addition of gluten free pasta, Chickapea!
Our thanks to Erin from The Almond Eater for sharing her delicious recipe for one of her favorite comfort foods. Our pasta is the perfect partner for this easy bowl of goodness!
My one pot tomato soup recipe is here and I’m SO EXCITED ABOUT IT! Does tomato soup remind you of your childhood? For me, it reminds me of college because THAT’S when I started truly enjoying and appreciating all that is tomato soup. It’s creamy and flavorful and pairs so perfectly will a grilled cheese sandwich (using gluten free bread). But you know what would make tomato soup even better?
Pasta. Correction: high protein, gluten free Chickapea pasta!
Yes really! The addition of pasta helps to make tomato soup even more filling and nutritious. Chickapea pasta is made from just chickpeas and lentils and doesn’t taste like gluten free pasta (it’s so good!). Let’s walk through this recipe because it’s really easy—I mean, hellooooo one pot tomato soup!
As you might suspect, you’re simply going to combine onions, garlic and tomatoes into one large pot and sauté for a few minutes, and then you’ll add the rest of the ingredient except for the pasta. You’ll bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes, which will allow the tomatoes to break down. Once the tomatoes are soft, you’ll do one of two things 1) use an immersion blender to blend up the soup in the pot or, if you don’t own an immersion blender, you’ll 2) pour soup into a blender and blend the soup until it’s smooth.
Now comes the good part. Once the soup is blended, you’ll add the pasta in with the soup and boil the entire mixture for no more than 10 minutes, allowing the pasta to cook.
….and that’s it!
One thing I need to mention is that this tomato soup recipe had harissa in it, which gives it a punch of flavor and spice. I was able to find harissa paste at the store—and I will say that a little bit goes a long way—but if you can’t find any, you can leave it out and this recipe will still be delicious. Alternatively, I believe they make harissa seasoning, but I don’t have an exact measurement for that, so you’ll have to do a few taste tests to get it to be to your exact spice preference.

Next, add tomato paste, harissa, oregano, broth, salt, and pepper and bring everything to a boil. Then, cover and reduce to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes or until tomatoes are soft.
Use an immersion blender to blend everything in the saucepan until smooth. Alternatively, you can pour mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. If you use a blender, pour soup back into the saucepan.

Pour soup into bowls, add a drizzle of milk (optional) and enjoy!
