Copy-Cat Paradise Bakery Fire Roasted Tomato Soup

Paradise Bakery is one of my favorite places to eat for two reasons:

1. Their chocolate chip cookies…. Hands down the best!
and 2. The Fire Roasted Tomato Soup.

I usually get one or the other, usually both, whenever I go.

The last time I went to Paradise Bakery, I told myself it was about time I found a Copy-Cat recipe for this delicious soup. I knew it must be pretty simple to make and didn’t want to physically go get it whenever the craving for some came. Because, really, I crave this soup frequently. I came home from my latest visit to Paradise Bakery and searched for similar recipes on the internet, when I came across this recipe from The Changing Table. This is pretty darn close to the real deal and is perfect for this time of year. It is bound to be a favorite in your home too, just as it is in mine.

    Oh my goodness, this soup looks heavenly. The colours are gorgeous :) Paradise Bakery is simply the best! Can I please be you?! haha I'm definitely making this soon.

    You look like you nailed it! In December I posted a copycat version of Panera Bread's Creamy Tomato Soup...I love the salsa chips you garnished yours with. So pretty! :)

  3. Shawna Gregg

    This sounds delicious and I can't wait to try it! If you're looking around for something new to try and copycat, may I suggest Kneaders' Asiago Bisque? I absolutely love that stuff, and I am going to miss it when I move back to Washington in a few months....

  8. Nancy A.

    i love tomato soup and have never had this kind. Didn't know you could buy fire roasted tomatoes! Will look for those next time I go grocery shopping and try this delicious soup! Love your recipes, thank you for sharing!!

  9. Karen Petersen

    I love ANY type of tomato soup. Will have to add this to my list of to-trys.

  10. Jennifer C.

    Just made this for lunch with a grilled cheese and it's delish. This is saying something because I'm usually not a tomato soup fan.

  11. Cynthia G.

    I just made this! It taste okay but not a copy of the paradise soup!

  12. Abbey

    I made this for my in-laws and it was a hit! I served it with a nice French bread then served the leftovers with grilled cheese! Next time I will have to double it because they wanted to take some home.

  13. Lisa l

    This is great soup. Only thing I would add is some sweet Basil or parsley.

  14. Erin

    How many does this serve?

  15. Erika Flores

    This soup is okay, but not like paradise. I added a mix of mozerella and cheddar cheese to it with milk and it gave it that creamy taste like paradise. I also added mushrooms. After these alterations it came out almost exactly like paradise's tomatoe soup. Yummm!

    I tried the copycat patadise bakery tomato soup and I'm SO disappointed as it tastes nothing like the restaurants. This was definitely thinner, perhaps too much broth/water, and it has a very pungent tomatoey taste, which is what I don't like about most tomato soups. Paradise is the first and only time I've liked tomato soup. I used organic everything, too, so I'm bummed I spent the money.

  17. Tammy

    Is it spicy? I love tomato soup and this one looks delicious. Thanks.

  18. Janina

    I've never had Paradise Bakery tomato soup, but this recipe is the best tomato soup ever! Perfect ratios of ingredients and the sour cream and tortilla strips are a must!

  19. Sarah
