This Fire Roasted Tomato and Basil Soup tastes so good and is easy to make! It’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser – you’ll love it!

If you’ve never tried homemade soup before, you might be under the impression that it involves countless ingredients and long hours simmering on the stove. This recipe proves that doesn’t have to be the case to cook delicious and nutritious soup right at home.

It only takes 20 minutes and 9 ingredients to create the Fire Roasted Tomato & Basil Soup—and you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already. Plus, it’s gluten- and dairy-free, paleo, and vegan. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
