Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

With every grilled cheese, there is a delicious Creamy Tomato Basil Soup on the side. This soup is just that, creamy and delicious! This recipe is super easy to throw together in a large stock pot or dutch oven. The flavor is bold and the texture is ideal. This is my personal favorite tomato soup to make for myself, or for friends. The difference is in the flavor of canned tomatoes I use. Make it with me!

Not all tomato soups are created equal. Some like their soup thick and chunky. For me, I am a smooth tomato soup fan. Like the tomato soup at zupas. That is one of my favorite tomato soups to grab on the go. If I have time to cook a great soup at my house, I throw together this soup because I know that it is a winner!

Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
Yields 6-8 servings

2 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cans roasted diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons chopped basil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

In a dutch oven or large pot over medium heat, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil until soft. Add in the tomatoes with the juice and chicken broth. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat for 5 more minutes. Using a blender or an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth.
Return the tomato mixture to the stove top and add in the cream, basil, and salt and pepper. Heat until it returns to a slow boil, then serve.
