Crockpot Tomato Soup is more then just tomato water! This is one of those soups where if you add a bunch of other vegetables, it tastes better. Its easy because its cooked in the crockpot and you can make it however you want!
When I was growing up, we used to eat canned Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese. Until one day I was “forced” (KIDDING) to eat it and ever since I never liked either of these. I wasn’t actually forced, it’s just what was made for lunch and that’s what I was supposed to eat, my parents weren’t mean about it.
I recently got a hankering for Tomato Soup. Recently, joined this Facebook page called “Soup Lovers” and let me tell you, the amount of delicious soups these lovely people make is AMAZING! Hence, why I was craving tomato soup! Odd because I don’t really like it. Since moving out, I have found I do like some things I once didn’t, because I can make it however I want. This is what got my intrigued in trying my turn at a Tomato Soup.
Here is how you can make this delicious soup right at home! Save yourself from buying the canned soup that is loaded with sodium! Get your vegetable intake for the day in as well! Check out the step-by-step pictures below as well as the full recipe at the bottom.
Quick Ingredient List
- Tomatoes -Garden Fresh, Frozen or Store Bought
- Sweet Peppers
- Garlic Cloves
- Vegetable Broth
- Tomato Paste
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- Optional: Heavy Whipping Cream
- Immersion Blender OR Regular Blender
Notes: You can add or leave out any of these vegetables. You are going to blend them all at the end, so make this however you like!
What Kind Of Tomatoes Can I use?
You can use frozen whole tomatoes, canned tomatoes, store bought tomatoes or garden fresh tomatoes. I found that any kind of tomato will work. Again, you are going to blend everything together at the end.
Notes: You can freeze whole tomatoes, thaw before using them for soup but you do not need to remove the seeds.
Can I Make This On The Stovetop?
Absolutely! This recipe can easily be converted to a stovetop recipe as well. The crockpot version is just nice because then you don’t need to watch the soup.
How Do I Make This Tomato Soup?
Grab out your 6-8 quart crockpot and set aside. Slice and dice your vegetables you would like to add to this recipe. You do not need to slice/dice very small as you are going to blend this at the end.
Add your vegetables into your crock pot and pour in your vegetable broth. Season with your desired seasonings, such as salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, parsley.
Set your crockpot on high for 3-4 hours or low 6-8 hours. You want your vegetables to cook down so they are nice and tender. Once they have cooked to your liking, blend everything together, using an immersion blender or regular blender.
Seriously, that is how easy this recipe is! The crockpot does the work, the hardest part I found was blending. This recipe would be VERY difficult, if you do not have a blender of some sorts. This soup is delicious with your favorite grilled cheese! Switch it up and use Everything Sourdough for your bread! *CHEFS KISS*
