Fire Roasted Tomato Soup

I LOVE the fire roasted tomato soup at Paradise Bakery.  I get it every time!  Last time I was there I thought, I am sure I could find a recipe that tastes just like this.  I want to be able to make it at home.  This recipe was so close to the real thing!  I couldn’t tell a difference.  The best part about this soup is that I made a big huge pot for about 7 dollars! We all loved it!  It was so nice to be able to warm up to this delicious creamy tomato soup and have a side of grilled cheese!

Rating: 5 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 3 stars
Review:  I really couldn’t get enough of the soup!  I left it in the slow cooker until the hubby got home and kept sneaking tastes of it.  It is so delicious and creamy.  I love that it made a lot because I will have some for left overs tomorrow!  This recipe is definitely a keeper! 


  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 28 oz can whole tomatoes
  • 2 14 oz cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

1. In a large pot, add olive oil and saute the onion until it is almost clear.  Add the garlic and continue to cook for a few more minutes.
2. Add tomatoes, sauce, paste, water, and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil, cover and let it simmer for about 30 minutes.
3.  In a blender or food processor puree the mixture until it gets to your desired consistency.  I like mine a little bit chunky just like Paradise Bakery.  Yum
4. Add the heavy cream, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.  Let it simmer for another 5 minutes and serve!
Yield about 8 cups

    Wish you had a print button.

    • Sorry about the print button. All of my current recipes have them since I switched to a new platform! I hope you like this soup. It is a favorite!

  7. Hi, do you think this would freeze well? I am looking for some soups that I can make and have on hand but not sure with the cream?

    Love your recipes!
    Thank you,

  8. First I have to say, I LOVE your recipes. I’ve made quite a few and they’ve all been big hits with my family. This one was not. I doubled this recipe (as I normally feed 12 people every night) but it came out incredibly sour and acidic even with all the cream in it. I went to the internet to see how to fix it. They recommended adding 1/4 t. baking soda, I only added 1/8t. for 8 qts. to cut the acid, it made it worse. Added a few tablespoons of sugar, still no better. What could have gone wrong? Do you use a certain type or brand of canned tomatoes? Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks.

  9. Do you think this would freeze well?

  10. Hi!

    I love your website and your recipes, but I made this recipe today, and I had the same bad sour, acidic result as Ann did. All my ingredients were fresh, and the soup looked wonderful, but the taste was absolutely sour and acidic. I was completely surprised, because I am a pretty good cook. I was disappointed that I had wasted my time, along with all the ingredients. So, I won’t be making this recipe again. But thanks again for your website and other recipes!

    • I am sorry this didn’t turn out for you! I make this for groups all of the time and it is the first to go!
