Creamy Tomato Soup – super easy tomato soup recipe you can make in the crock pot or on the stove top. Great for a quick dinner or lunch.

Soup has to be one of the most comforting dinners you can make. It doesn’t matter if it is a broth based soup like Wonton Soup or something creamy like this tomato soup. It is a must as soon as the weather has any chill in the air.

When I was growing up the only tomato soup I had was out of a can, but now that I have made my own, I am not sure I could ever go back. It is so easy, and so much better to make your own.

How To Make Creamy Tomato Soup

  1. In a stock pot heat olive oil over medium high heat. Sauté the onions for 3-4 minutes until soft. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute., until you can start to smell it.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, chicken stock, salt, sugar, Italian seasoning and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Using a stick blender (or a normal blender), blend soup until smooth or your desired consistency.
  5. Mix in heavy cream and cheese until it is melted and well combine.
  6. Serve topped with additional cheese if desired

Can I Make Ahead

Yes, absolutely! This soup freezes really well, so if you want to freeze smaller portions for lunches or dinners on busy nights, it works great. Store the soup in an airtight container in the freezer for 4-5 months. Just remove and heat when ready to serve.
