Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta Soup

Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #soup #recipe

Nothing welcomes the chill of autumn better than a bowl of hot soup. A nice bowl of hot soup is a full meal for me … and it feels so good especially when the fall colds start going around or when my allergies are acting up.

When I made bruschetta the other day, I ended up with quite a bit left (because I made extra), and it was sitting in the bowl and the tomatoes were so juicy, it was starting to look soupy so that made me think of … soup! Why not make bruschetta soup?

So I turned my bruschetta upside down and made some amazing soup in just a few minutes. This is an awesome cook-once,
eat-twice kinda meal. Next time you make bruschetta with your fresh garden tomatoes, make extra, then you can turn the leftovers into this comforting soup.

Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta Soup

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: About 3 1/2 cups of soup (2 - 3 servings)

Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta Soup


  • 1 1/2 cups heirloom tomato bruschetta (recipe here) (I used extra garlic)
  • 1 cup tomato juice
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • Good bread, cut into cubes and toasted
  • Shredded Italian blend of cheeses


  1. In a saucepan, mix the bruschetta, tomato juice and broth and bring to boil.
  2. Reduce to simmer and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 F. Pour the soup into oven safe bowls and top with toast cubes, then cover the croutons with shredded cheese.
  4. Carefullly set the bowls in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is good and melty and maybe even a little brown and bubbly on top.
  5. Transfer the bowls to serving plates, garnish with fresh basil leaves (if desired) and serve immediately.

  1. It certainly doesn’t feel like fall around here yet, but I am excited to make this soup once it does. The best thing about winter I think is soup season 🙂 Pinned!
