Easy And Creamy Tomato Soup. Now nothing says soup better than creamy tomato soup. And in my case tomato soup and grilled cheese. A childhood staple. A very no-fuss soup recipe that will be your go to over the store bought stuff. And while I love fresh tomatoes using canned is just as good. My pantry is stocked with a variety of canned tomatoes. It’s my go-to staple when I’m making a quick pasta sauce or soup. Onion, garlic, basil, and a little heavy cream create this rich and flavor-packed soup. Comfort food in a bowl. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine did. Share your comments below.
Easy And Creamy Tomato Soup
Two tablespoons unsalted butter
One tablespoon olive oil
One medium sized onion, roughly chopped.
One 28oz can whole peeled tomatoes
Two cloves garlic smashed.
Four basil leaves, roughly chopped. (Plus more for garnish)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup chicken stock
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
Kosher salt and pepper to taste.
Heat a large dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat and melt butter. Add roughly chopped onion, garlic, salt and saute until translucent. Add in tomato, stock, cream, basil, and sugar. And bring the soup to a boil before reducing the heat and allowing it to simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Use an immersion blender (Great tool to have when making soups and very inexpensive) or regular blender to puree soup until smooth. Return to the pot and season with more salt and pepper to taste. Top with freshly chopped basil and enjoy. I would suggest pairing it with a grilled cheese sandwich!
*Tip* Use a towel over your blender when blending the hot soup. You can also wait for the soup to cool off and reheat it after mixing if you’re worried about working with hot soup.
