    Cream Tomato and Basil Soup

    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Cook Time: 45 minutes
    Cooling time: 45 minutes
    Total Time: 55 minutes
    Course: Soup
    Cuisine: American
    Keyword: basil-herb, freezer, soup, tomatoes
    Servings: 8


    • 3 lbs Tomatoes - Cored, skins remove and quartered
    • 1 1/2 cups Onion, chopped
    • 1/2 cup Basil - leaves picked & chopped
    • 1/4 cup Butter unsalted
    • 1/4 cup Olive oil
    • Salt and Pepper to taste
    • 1 qt Chicken stock
    • 1 cup Heavy cream See notes
    • 8 sprigs Basil to garnish


    • In a Dutch oven or heavy pot melt the butter and oil together over a medium heat. Add the onions and cook until softened
    • Add the tomatoes and chopped basil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
    • Add the chicken broth and reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.
    • Allow soup to cool for approximately 45 minutes, then with an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth.
    • If you plan on freezing the soup omit the next step and cool until it is ready to bag for the freezer. To freeze I put about 3 cups into a quart freezer bag, remove as much air as you can, seal and lay flat on a sheet pan. You will have 4 bags of soup with 2 servings in each. Freeze the bags on the sheet pan then transfer to freezer for storage.
    • Bring the soup back up to a boil, reduce the heat to low and slowly stir in the heavy cream. Serve immediately garnished with a sprig of basil.
    • If reheating from frozen, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and stir in 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Serve and garnish.
