Ingredients in Paleo AIP Tomato Soup
Surprisingly, the fun ingredients in this soup are nectarines and cherries!! You may also use peaches, if that’s what you find more easily at the grocery store.
I got the idea for this soup and was amazed how it came together to taste just like tomato soup! The other (savory!) ingredients that make it work are:
- sautéed onions
- olive oil
- fresh lemon juice
- dried oregano
- homemade broth
- sea salt
While most nomato recipes use carrots and beets, this recipe uses fruit! This makes Paleo AIP Tomato Soup a truly summer soup recipe, which I love, because it’s seasonal just like fresh tomato soup would be.
Choose white or orange nectarines, or peaches, depending on what looks best. I chose white, so my soup color in the photos is not as tomato-looking as it will be if you choose orange fruit.
Enjoy this soup when the weather is warm but not too hot, or if you have air conditioning. 🙂
We’re enjoying it in Oregon right now because nectarines are fully in season, yet it’s not super hot here. We had a hot spring, but late June/early July is cool most days. Perfect weather for homemade AIP bread, sausages and comforting summer soup.
How to make Paleo AIP Tomato Soup
Start by sautéing onions in olive oil, a great start to any soup recipe! Then:
- Add nectarines, cherries and garlic … then the dried oregano.
- After intermittent sautéing, add broth, and simmer covered for 10 minutes.
- Cool 20 minutes, add fresh lemon juice, and purée until smooth.
- Reheat and serve.
As you’ll see, this soup really does taste just like tomato soup! Pretty exciting.
Paleo AIP Tomato Soup ("nomato" nightshade-free)

- 2 nectarines or peaches (I used white, but use orange if you want a more tomato-like color), slightly unripe and peeled, cut off the pit (if not freestone) and chopped

- 4 cherries cut in half, and pits removed
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice fresh
- 2 cloves garlic sliced
- 1 teaspoon oregano dried
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- Assemble and prepare ingredients.
- Heat large sauté pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add olive oil, onions and ½ teaspoon sea salt, and sauté 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and sauté 5 minutes more.
- Add nectarines, cherries and garlic. Stir and continue to sauté over medium-low heat 5 minutes more.
- Add oregano. Sauté 5 additional minutes.
- Add broth, increase heat to medium-high until it reaches a simmer; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes.

This looks really good and I’m going to try it when the peaches come in. Thanks Megan!
The only thing I’m wondering is that garlic is mentioned in the instructions (add peaches, cherries and garlic) but it is not mentioned in the ingredients list. How much garlic are you using?
Hi Joy, THANK YOU! for making me aware. I accidentally left them out of the Ingredients list and just added them in: 2 cloves, sliced. I’d love to hear how you like the soup when you try it!
I love this fruit twist on a summer soup! It’s so fresh, light and honestly comforting and perfect for warmer weather!
Great, Shelby. Sounds like you made it? So glad you enjoyed!
wow very interesting using nectarines and cherries as a sub. it was very tasty!!
Great to hear, Nancy. I’m so happy enjoyed! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Such a great idea for a “tomato” soup! I love that you use fresh seasonal cherries and nectarines.
OK, I had some doubts but it turned out great! Tomatoes actually are a little sweet so the fruit in this make sense and the other ingredients keep it savory. I’ll definitely make it again!
Great, Donny! Thanks for sharing your review, and I’m so glad you enjoyed! 🙂
Megan, this is blowing my mind, cherries and nectarines?! Hubby and I talk about giving up tomatoes sometimes, but just haven’t been able to do it . . but this recipe and some of the other “nomato” ones give me some great options I didn’t know I had!!! thanks
You’re welcome, Jennifer, I’m so glad. I know, I agree; tomatoes are so special, yet we really need good alternatives because nightshades can be so problematic. I hope you love the soup one day when you’re ready for alternatives!
