Classic Tomato Soup For A Slow Cooker

Adding another recipe that can be used with a slow cooker is always so exciting for me. with this tomato soup recipe, you just throw everything together and leave it! I actually have never been a huge fan of tomato soup. That is, until I tried this recipe and boy have my tastes changed! This recipe is also great for those who are Gluten Free! (Just skip any sides of bread)

Usually this recipe is great for leftovers, but recently we haven’t had to much left due to everyone scarfing it down right away. I swear it’s that good. All you need is to whip up a side of grilled cheese and you have a perfect meal for the kids or light lunch with friends.

The Ingredients:

  • 2- 28 oz cans of diced tomatoes, (56 oz total)
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 whole bay leaf

The Instructions:

  • Dice the yellow onion and carrots just a bit so you can evenly distribute it in the slow cooker
  • Add all of the ingredients into the slow cooker
  • Turn on the slow cooker and have it set on High for about 4 hours. if you are using the Low setting, cook for about 6-8 hours
  • When finished cooking, pour the ingredients into a blender to pulse into a smooth consistency, making sure there aren’t any chunks. You’ll most likely not fit it all in the blender, so do the first half and then the remaining that needs to be blended
  • Once all ingredients have been pulsed, place back into the slow cooker and serve right away, or keep warm for later.

Happy Cooking!
