Food inspired by Hogwarts houses – Gryffindor Fresh Tomato soup

Recently I’ve been a bit Harry Potter obsessed. We’ve been watching the series on TV over the weekends and this prompted me to make foods that can represent the various Hogwarts houses. Since Gryffindor is probably the most well known Hogwarts house, I’m starting off this series with a Tomato soup inspired by the colors of the Gryffindor house, red and yellow.

This tomato soup is a lovely orange red color, it has a fresh taste that melts in your mouth, the thyme and bay-leaf explodes in your mouth and accentuate the bacon with the tomato. It is a lovely soup especially for the cold winter months



  • 4 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • half an onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1½ tomato ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth (more to thin out the soup at the end as needed)
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 20 fresh baby tomatoes (any kind)
  • 2 tbs sugar ( to reduce the sour taste of the tomatoes)
