Tomato Basil Soup Recipe

Tomato Basil Soup Hip2Save

Warm up with a comforting homemade bowl of creamy tomato basil soup! It’s super simple to make and so delicious compared to its canned version.

Tomato Basil Soup

(heavily adapted from Taste of Home)

Ingredients:

2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 chopped yellow onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 – 28oz. cans crushed tomatoes
1 can – 14oz. chicken or vegetable broth
15 leaves of fresh basil, chopped
2 teaspoons sugar (more or less depending on acidity of tomatoes)
3/4 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup butter
optional: Grated parmesan cheese for garnish

Making tomato soupDirections: In a large pot on the stove, brown onion and garlic in olive oil for a few minutes until translucent. Add canned tomatoes and broth. Bring to a boil and let simmer for ten minutes. Add basil and sugar and reduce heat to low. Add one teaspoon sugar and taste to see if mixture needs more sugar. Stir in cream and butter. Cook until butter is melted. Add salt & pepper to taste and garnish with Parmesan cheese if desired. Makes about 9 servings.

Easy tomato soup recipeIf you whip up a batch of this soup, keep it warm in a slow cooker until dinner. My kids love dipping grilled cheese sandwiches into tomato soup and they really enjoyed this version!

    Thanks for a wonderful recipe. Am gonna try this with fresh tomatoes..

  11. Jo Ann

    If you don’t have fresh basil could you use dried basil and any idea how much you would use?

  12. Sarah

    I’ve got a cold and wanted something warm and yummy and this was warm and YUMMY!! Even my 10 year old who is anti-tomato soup decided to give this a try and dipped his grilled cheese like it was going out of style! I didn’t have crushed tomatoes but did have 1/2 a box of tomato sauce and a jar and a half of spaghetti sauce (which I blended to get rid of chunks) but it worked just fine. I will never buy my tomato basil soup from *afeway again!! Thank you for (all) the delicious recipie(s) Lina and Collin:) And I fed 6 for under $10 to top it all off!! Bonus:)

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh great news, thanks!

  13. Kristen

    Linda, YUM! I make a similar soup, but just add all my ingredients to my blender, then cook. So, so easy!

  14. Alison Matalanis

    I made this soup a couple of times, and it is delicious. Thanks, Lina!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Awesome! You’re welcome 🙂
