We are getting Valentine’s Day ready with this Smoky Tomato Soup with Heart-Shaped Croutons. Because what says “I love you” more than a tasty home-cooked meal?! I made my boyfriend tomato soup for our first Valentine’s Day together last year, so I think it is just our tradition now.

This tomato soup is simple & delicious. The garlic heart-shaped croutons are made with crescent dough and are perfect for dunking. This is the type of recipe that warms you from the inside out.

Step One: Roast the Veggies

The base of any great tomato soup is fresh veggies. I like to roast mine so they get that smoky flavor. For this soup I used a combo of campari and grape tomatoes. But feel free to use any combo of tomatoes you want!

Add the tomatoes (halve any larger tomatoes), chopped onion, garlic, carrots, oil and a big pinch of salt & pepper to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Toss to coat and place in the oven on the middle rack for 1 hour.

Step Two: Heart-Shaped Croutons

I am obsessed with these heart-shaped croutons! They are so easy to make and are so cute! I got my heart-shaped biscuit cutters here.

Roll out a can of crescent dough on a lightly floured surface. Pinch together any seams in the dough. Use the biscuit cutter to make 10-15 hearts and place on another parchment-lined baking sheet – you may need to roll out the scraps of dough a couple of times.

Brush the hearts with the melted butter and sprinkle with garlic powder & garlic salt. When you pull the veggies out of the oven, put the croutons in. They will brown up in 10-12 minutes.

Step Three: Finish the Soup

Transfer the tomatoes & their juices to a standing blender with 1 cup of broth and chipotle peppers (these are optional, but add that smoky flavor). Blend until smooth.

Transfer the mixture to a stock pot over medium heat. Add the remaining broth, thyme, oregano & red pepper flakes to the pot and stir to combine. Taste and add more salt & pepper if needed.

Step Four: Serve

To serve, ladle the hot soup into bowls and top with fresh basil. Have the heart-shaped croutons on the side ready for dunking. Just be sure to share them with someone you love!

The soup can be stored in the fridge/freezer and reheated. And the croutons can be reheated in the microwave or air fryer.

Ingredients

FOR THE SOUP

FOR THE HEART-SHAPED CROUTONS

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add the tomatoes (halve any larger tomatoes), onion, garlic, carrots, oil and a big pinch of salt & pepper to one of the baking sheets. Toss to coat and place in the oven on the middle rack for 1 hour.
  • While the tomatoes are roasting, roll out the crescent dough on a lightly floured surface. Pinch together any seams in the dough. Use a biscuit cutter to make 10-15 hearts and place on the other baking sheet – you may need to roll out the scraps of dough a couple of times. Brush the dough with the melted butter and sprinkle with garlic powder & garlic salt.
  • Pull the tomatoes out of the oven and put the croutons in. Let the tomatoes cool and cook the croutons for 10-12 minutes, or until browned. Remove from the oven.
  • Transfer the tomatoes & their juices to a standing blender with 1 cup of broth and the chipotle peppers. Blend until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a stock pot over medium heat. Add the remaining broth, thyme, oregano & red pepper flakes to the pot and stir to combine. Taste and add more salt & pepper if needed.
  • Once hot, ladle the soup into bowls, top with fresh basil and serve the heart-shaped croutons on the side for dipping.

Notes

  • If you get the same set of heart-shaped biscuit cutters that I have – I used the second smallest cutter in the set. I believe it is 2″.
