3. Prepare Cold Tomato Soup From Fresh Tomatoes

For the cold tomato soup you need fantastically fragrant, ripe tomatoes.

Other ingredients for this cold summer soup are olive oil and some garlic , optionally some white wine , salt, pepper , cayenne pepper and sugar .

Alternatively, you can use canned tomatoes. I will introduce you to the various products under point 4.

You can prepare this cold bowl in different ways, complementing it with basil pesto and crispy fried basil leaves is one of my favorite ways.

In the recipe I show you a nice idea, combined with avocado, feta cheese and corn chips.

4. Cold Tomato Soup Made From Canned Tomatoes or Strained Tomatoes

You can also prepare the cold tomato bowl from canned tomatoes or tomatoes that have been passed through.

It’s faster, but the taste is different. The canned tomatoes are finally cooked.

I only make this version of the soup when I don’t have fresh tomatoes on hand.

After all, in summer there are always fresh tomatoes that taste great.

A cold tomato bowl is rarely served with the Christmas menu.

Here is an overview of the different canned tomatoes.

Make up your own mind and decide according to your personal taste!

Cold soup made from fresh tomatoes tastes fine, light, you can taste the sun on your tongue!

  • Hi Thomas!

    Thx for the great Recipe and this decoration ideas 🙂

    My Question:
    What difference does it make in the taste if I use white wine or Prosecco? 🙂

    Does the carbon dioxide also make a difference?

    Greetings from Zel


    • Hello Zel,

      thank you for your message and the positive feedback.

      the amount of prosecco is so small and only gives a little touch.

      So both are fine!

      Kind regards Thomas


  • Hi Chef 👋 Thomas,

    Tastes really great!

    I liked the cold soup, thank you for the recipe 👍

    Greetings Christine


    • Hello Christine,

      Such a message makes me very happy!

      thank you for your feedback.

      Kind regards Thomas


  • Hello Thomas,

    Nice Photos and good guide!

    Thank you for the nice instructions and the tips for the variants.

    In fact, on Saturday evening I didn't have enough fresh fresh tomatoes at home.

    So I have to try the variant with canned tomatoes.

    Since I'm not an Avodaco fan, I tried your basil chips, I'll remember them now.

    Where else do you use this?

    We had a lovely evening with a fine, cold soup. Thank you! Greetings Perry


    • Hello Perry,

      Thanks 🙂

      Merci 🙂 for your beautiful lines that I like to read.

      Variant recipes have exactly this advantage:

      there is something for everyone and the creative streak is stimulated.

      I like to combine the basil chips with

      —> spaghetti with tomato sauce ,

      and with…

      —> spaghetti with pesto Genovese and with fish dishes in general.

      I even decorated a basil chip nest :-). Feel free to contact us with questions and kitchen gossip.

      I look forward to a lively exchange! Kind regards Thomas


  • Hi Chef Thomas,

    Here is Elise writing after a good meal 🙂

    I've already been able to harvest the first beautiful tomatoes from the garden and prepared a cold tomato bowl according to your instructions.

    The fresh tomatoes taste exceptionally fine and your tips are great.

    For me personally, the soy sauce brought the taste kick. I'll remember that now for other tomato preparations.

    Now I have to think about it, I have a good 4 kg of tomatoes left and I have to come up with something else. I'm happy about tips from you 🙂

    🙂 Elise


    • Hello 🙂

      great and nice to read from you, thank you for your detailed feedback.

      I find the soy sauce in combination with the tomato almost magical.

      It conjures up a great taste and I'm glad you got the seasoning tip.

      If you have that many tomatoes left, you could boil down tomato sauce .

      Take a look at the recipe and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

      Tip: Be sure to wash the jars with vinegar essence, fill them up very hot and close them.

      I wish you good luck! Kind regards Thomas
