Video of Man Making Homemade Tomato Soup for His Daughter-in-Law Gives Us All the Feels

It always feels so nice when someone makes something special, just for you. TikTok content creator @thewhyteelephant shows us how he makes his fresh-from-the-garden tomato soup for his daughter-in-law. And it doesn't get much sweeter than this.

You'll love this recipe and it's creator for your end of season tomatoes!

We couldn’t love him more, and we think his daughter-in-law must be pretty special too, if he makes this soup for her each year. What a tasty way to use up those sweet tomatoes! If you’re tired of canning or making sauce, this is another great way to use your garden's harvest.

For this beautiful soup, he starts by softening the onions and carrots, then he adds in garlic, tomato paste, broth and freshly-chopped basil. The cored and quartered tomatoes go in next, and they simmer for about 30 minutes. The chunky mixture then goes through a food mill to remove the seeds and skins. He adds a cup of cream to the smooth soup and continues heating until blended and ready to serve. It looks so good!

The audience liked this recipe but loved the video's creator even more. Viewer @Nick Hankes commented,” I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. THEY DON’T MAKE 'EM LIKE THIS GUY ANYMORE!” No, they really don’t. Viewer and soup recipient, @Melissa commented: “Loved the soup! I can attest to the deliciousness!” And the video's creator @thewhyteelephant replied, “Thanks Melissa, Glad you liked it.” It sounds nice to be a member of this family. 

We enjoyed everything about this video. It’s a delicious way to use up the fresh tomatoes from our gardens, and it’s the perfect reminder to do something nice for someone we love, too.
