We have been having a lot of soup around here lately with all this cold and rainy weather. I typically always have a couple of cans of tomato soup on hand for a quick and easy dinner, and we have been loving it! Recently I thought, I could probably make this on my own instead of buying the can version. I found a recipe, tweaked it a bit, and we ate the whole thing. It even reheated well for a couple of lunches throughout the week. This recipe has definitely added to our meal rotation now!

Adapted from The Pinning Mama

- 1 can 28 oz crushed tomatoes
1 can 28 oz diced tomatoes
- 1 can 6 oz tomato paste
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp Basil
1 tbsp onion powder
2 Tbsp sugar
2.5 cups chicken broth
1/3 cup butter
1 cup heavy cream

1. Combine the tomatoes,tomato paste, broth, and garlic bring to a boil and let boil for 10 minutes.

2. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the sugar and butter and mix until they are dissolved, melted and well combined.

3. Stir in the basil and onion powder.

4. Very slowly pour in the heavy cream while simultaneously stirring until all the cream is combined and the soup is creamy.


  1. Yum! I have never tried to make my own creamy tomato soup, but this sound delicious!

  2. This sounds so delicious! Perfect for a cold day :)

  3. Yum! I love tomato soup but the one time I attempted to make it it was not a success! Going to give this recipe a try soon!
