Polish Tomato Soup {Zupa Pomidorowa}

My mom often made tomato soup on Mondays. If you read my chicken soup {rosół} post, you know that we always ate rosół on Sundays, providing a time-saving base for tomato soup on Mondays. It’s like leftovers, but better, because you’re not eating the same thing again.

When I first came to America and tasted tomato soup, I thought it was very sweet. Everything seemed a lot sweeter as a matter of fact. I was used to a more tangy and bold tomato flavor. I think this soup is a bit more savory than you may expect from a tomato soup but I hope you find this soup as a nice alternative.

  • Yields: 6-8 servings
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • About 2 qts / 2 l of chicken stock (or leftover chicken soup + chicken meat)

  2. Turn to boil. Add peeled carrots and cook uncovered until it thickens a bit, about 15 minutes on medium-low or low.

  3. Taste. Add salt, if needed. If you have some leftover chicken meat, you may also add to soup to heat through.

  5. Serve with pasta or rice, carrot slices and chicken meat, garnished with parsley.

*You can use leftover chicken soup or use your favorite stock. I normally make it with leftover chicken soup.

Let me know what you think about this version of tomato soup.

Smacznego!

  1. My very Polish Aunt Sophie made a similar soup. Hers was beef stock based and beef was cooked in the stock. Then she added the blended tomatoes and parsley along with home made noodles. I have fond memories of huge sheets of noodle dough drying on several beds. The beds were used because they were the largest flat spots in her tiny house. I love your site. Most of my aunts recipes went with her to the grave, very few were written down. I’ve managed to reproduce a number of the meals I loved at her house by finding them on this site. Thank you for that. I’ll be trying your chicken tomatoe soup in the next few days.

  2. I make something similar. Chicken stock or broth from leftover chicken soup, 1 can of organic tomato sauce, bay leaf, celery seed, dill, and egg noodles or home made pasta. I don’t like American tomato soup and I am American! Lol

  3. I remember that from my Babci some 50 plus years ago. Only had it that 1 time but I remember it distinctly. If only I was wise enough back then I would have gotten the recipe. From what I now remember , thanks to you, your recipe looks just about right. Once my tomatoes are ready I will give it a shot. Thank-You!

  4. We ate a similar soup … very inexpensive meal for family of 6 with limited funds. Another I’ll be fixing soon.
    Question …
    My Polish Grandma and Ciocia made a soup they called “ Bouja” sp?. It had cooked, ground chicken, ground beef roast (maybe leftover), ground carrots, onion, celery, parsley and basil garnish. It was cooked in the broth from boiling the chicken. I recall the old metal grinder attached to edge of counter while grinding everything. Does this sound like anything you know? And the name … Grandma only wrote in Polish, so the spelling Bouja may be different but that’s how it sounded. Thanks for helping me figure out this.
    I love your posts and cookbook I bought!
