Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Soup tastes like you went to your garden and picked the fresh vegetables and created this wonderful soup. I love soups made in the slow cooker, to me, they just taste better. I don’t know why, they just do. So, to continue with my love of slow cooker soups I created this recipe for Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Soup.
I had high five’s from my daughter’s Hailey and Mackenzie on this soup. My hubby, Mr. B had other opinions. I asked him how he liked it (I was riding pretty high as I LOVED this soup) and he said it was good and then admitted to me that he doesn’t like his tomato soup creamy. I guess I learned something new about Mr. B even though I’ve been married to him for almost 25 years, just saying, I thought I knew him so well.
The tomato flavor is enhanced with carrots, celery, onions and broth. This soup really comes together in the end when you melt parmesan cheese into some half and half and added it to the pureed soup. I served it with homemade rye croutons. They were very tasty in the soup, I really liked the rye and caraway flavor.
- 4 cups diced fresh roma tomatoes, with seeds and juice
- 1 ½ cups diced carrots
- 1 ½ cups diced onions
- 3 tbsp. tomato paste
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 2 tbsp. basil
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 2/3 cup half and half
- ½ cup parmesan cheese, I used Kraft
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Add to your slow cooker; tomatoes, carrots, onions, paste, oregano, basil and vegetable broth. Cook on low for 5 hours or until the vegetables are very soft. Take an immersion blender (or you can use a blender) and puree the soup mixture.
- In a small pan, cook the half and half on low until heated through, add the parmesan cheese and cook until the cheese is melted. Add the mixture to the soup base and stir to combine. Taste the soup for seasonings, you may want to add some salt and pepper at this point, but most likely you won’t need to.
