Creamy Tomato Soup

Posted on January 30, 2009. Filed under: Soups |

This is a great main course or side dish. It is extremly easy beause you throw it in the crockpot in the morning and the crockpot does all the cooking. It is healthy too.

Serves 6
3 cans Diced Tomatos,drained
1 c. carrots, chopped
1. c celery, chopped
1 c. onion, chopped
3 c. vegetable stock
1/4 fresh basil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 c. non fat Half and Half (Trader Joe’s is my favorite)

Parmesan cheese and fresh basil for garnish

Add all the ingredients except for the half and half to the crockpot. Cook on low for 7-8 hours. Add the half and half. Use and immersion blender to puree everything in the crockpot. Puree it until the soup is smooth and silky. Cook it for another 20 minutes.
I serve it with a grilled cheese sandwich and roasted asparagus. It is healthy and affordable comfort food.

*You can also use a food processor to puree the ingrediants. You will just have to puree them in batches. Since the food processor wont hold all of the soup at once.
