The Easiest, Delicious Tomato Basil Soup

The world needs more easy to make soup recipes. I always scroll Pinterest hoping to come across a tomato soup that doesn't involve an immersion blender, or a regular blender which then involves pouring your mixture into a canister, blending and putting it back. That's all fine if that's your jam, but my jam is more of a the-easier-the-better situation.

I finally gave up the idea of smashing whole peeled canned tomatoes with a drink muddler and bought the simpler pre-blended condensed tomato soup. All you need is two 26 oz. cans of that, a 6 oz. can of tomato paste, heavy cream, regular milk, a bunch of dried seasoning, shaved or shredded parmesan and you've got yourself a fancy a$% tomato basil soup, from a can!

What you need:

2 26oz. cans of condensed tomato soup

1 can of 6oz. tomato paste

2 CUPS of heavy cream

1 CUP of 2% milk

1 TBSP butter

1/4 TSP of sugar

1 TBSP of dried thyme

3 TSP of onion powder

2 large cloves of garlic, peeled and minced

shaved or shredded parmesan, a sprinkle for garnishing

salt + pepper to taste, I recommend 1 TSP of each

basil, you can use fresh chopped, dried, or the lightly dried basil from Gourmet Garden (that's what I use) you can find it at Target or regular grocery stores in the fresh herbs section

What to do:

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot, until almost completely melted then toss in the minced garlic, stir around for 2 minutes or until fragrant

  2. Toss in the thyme, onion powder, salt and pepper and continue to stir around

  3. Pour in the two cans of condensed tomato soup, sprinkle in the sugar, stir again, let cook for 5 minutes

  4. Next add the heavy cream and milk to the pot, stir and allow to simmer for 5 minutes or more

  5. Add in the basil, stir and allow to simmer for 3-5 more minutes, serve with homemade or regular croutons, a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and another sprinkle of basil. Enjoy! xo
