Tomato soup is probably one of my favorite soups to have on a rainy day. It’s just pure comfort food. We still have to get through the end of winter and the “April Showers” (just because it is a cliche doesn’t mean that it isn’t true!), and I just crave soup on those cold, damp and dreary days. Here is an easy tomato soup recipe that you can make in the crockpot!
Trust me – once you make this, you will never buy a can of the stuff again! If you want to make it in a hurry, it can also be made on top of the stove. Just follow all the directions and simmer it for about 20 – 30 minutes until the tomatoes are very tender.
The only special equipment that you will need to make this soup is a traditional blender or an immersion blender. I highly recommend that you buy an immersion blender, if not for this recipe, then for future ones. It is such a time-saver (because you don’t have to process the tomatoes in “small batches” like you do with a regular blender) and will save you some time on clean-up!
