Tomato vermicelli soup

Tomato Vermicelli Soup


Semiya/Vermicelli is commonly used for breakfast in various forms like Upma. Here there’s a delicious way to make them heartier. The base of the soup is mainly tomatoes but the addition of the vermicelli, carrot, onion just makes everything click together.

Tomato carrot soup is one of the most simplest and easy soup recipes. The soup has the sweetness of carrots and onion, along with the slight tanginess of tomatoes, garlic in the soup gives a slight sharpness with the earthy flavour of cumin.

Usually noodles are included in the soup but here replace noodles with the Vermicelli, it can be personalised as per the taste and preference.

This soup is kids friendly too and if making for kids then skip black pepper.

  • Turn off the flame and allow it to cool completely.
  • Once cooled blend in the mixer/blender till smooth.

  • I used very fine brown rice vermicelli so it cooked very fast and was not visible, so you can use regular vermicelli/ noodles.
  • If you love cream in your soup go ahead and add few tablespoon of cream.
  • Feel free to add spices as per the taste.

  1. Interesting! This sounds very similar to a Mexican vermicelli soup (including the cumin) only without the coconut milk. I would imagine that the coconut milk adds a completely different flavor profile and cannot wait to try it.


  2. Sounds good Chitra!
