Comfy food is acceptable any time of year! At our house, we eat a soup and a sandwich year round even when it’s very hot outside. It’s a great way to have your kids eat their vegetables. This delicious Tomato Basil Soup recipe and very creamy and tasty. Enjoy!

For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

Soup Ingredients

1 TBSP olive oil
1 large red onion, chopped
1 ½ tsp minced garlic
1 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
2 15 oz cans of chicken broth

The Tomato Basis Soup is so easy to make! This is how you do it:

 

Tomato Basil Soup

 

Soup Directions

Pour olive oil into a large pot heating until hot on medium heat. Add your onions and cook until soft about 5 minutes. Toss in the minced garlic and continue to cook while seasoning with salt and pepper stirring occasionally. Add can of crushed tomatoes and chicken broth. Bring it to a boil then allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Next transfer your soup into a food processor blending until smooth. Return pureed soup back to pot, again on medium heat. Lower the heat and allow to simmer while adding the heavy cream stirring to incorporate the two together. Add about ½ of the chopped basil. Let this sit and simmer for another 15 minutes or longer if you prefer a thicker soup 

Bread bowls:

Using a sharp knife, cut a circle into the top of each loaf, leaving a 1-inch border all around. Remove the bread top, then hollow out the middle with a fork or your fingers, leaving a thick bread shell.

Scoop the soup into each bread bowl and garnish each with remaining basil.

I hope you enjoyed my Tomato Basil Soup recipe as much as my family and I did. If you make it, make sure to share with us on Facebook or Twitter! Also, check out all of our other Recipes.
