I pulled the Crock Pot out yesterday to prepare this and it was like I reunited with an old friend.  I really believe that Crock Pot is the perfect solution to dinner time drama.  Just pull it out early in the day and throw all the goodness in a pot…

By the time you come home the house smells divine and your meal is almost complete.  This Easy Crock Pot Tomato Basil soup recipe uses a little whirl of the immersion blender to finish it off.

Easy, peasy!  

If you don’t have an immersion blender a regular blender will work well too.  Just blend in batches and be careful with the hot liquid.

    I made this today and it is absolutely delicious, and I haven’t cared for tomato soup since I was a kid.
    I didn’t look up what packed basil leaves meant until after I dumped in 1/4 cup of dried basil (the stuff in he spice aisle). After I checked a conversion chart (2:1), I scooped out about half of it.
    I mixed in 1-1/4 (16 oz) cartons of sour cream at the end and used the immersion blender (which I bought just to make this recipe!) to blend it in.
    My granddaughter is a vegetarian and it can be challenging making meals for her. She loved this, as did my husband. Thanks!

      Oh no! Glad you got some of that dried basil out in time. 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

    In the recipe I found, it called for half and half, not quite as healthy as yours!
    The tomato did not seem to like me adding the dairy. It wasn’t curdled, but it was not creamy as I would have expected. Any suggestions?

      The creamy recipes I saw made a little flour and butter mixture to thicken it or added the cream right at the end. I added some fat free sour cream to mine, gave it a stir and got a little creamier texture. I’ll have to work on a specific recipe for a creamier one!
