Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Soup Recipe
Recipe type: Appetizer
  • 6 Cups Tomatoes (pureed - OR sub in 3 cans diced)
  • 1 Cup Onion (diced)
  • 4 Cups Chicken Broth
  • ¼ Cup Basil (fine chopped)
  • 1 TSP Oregano
  • 2 Cups Half and Half
  • ½ Cup Flour
  • ½ Cup Butter
  • 1 Cup Parmesan Cheese (fresh grated)
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)
  1. If using fresh tomatoes, puree up 6 full cups and don't drain any liquid. (if using cans, don't drain liquid) Pour into slow cooker.
  2. Add onions, oregano, basil, half and half and finally the chicken broth. On low cook covered for 5 hours. Stir occasionally.
  3. About ½ hour before you're ready to serve, make up a quick roux. Use small saucepan over low heat to melt butter, add flour and stir for about 3-5 minutes. Don't let this burn! Add in 1 cup of cooked soup and stir until super smooth.
  4. Lumpy tomato basil soup is yucky. Pour this back into your slow cooker and stir to incorporate well.
  5. Continue to cook on low for about 30 minutes until soup is thickened.
  6. Add Parmesan cheese, let sit for 5 minutes until melted. Salt and pepper to taste.

See, comfort food! We make this using our fresh tomatoes in the summer and use cans in the winter. It’s awesome after being outside building snowmen with the kiddos on cold days too!

    I am a BIG fan of tomato soup and grilled cheese. I even craved it during my last pregnancy. Great to know I can whip some up in my slow cooker for the entire family to enjoy.

  2. Toni says

    This recipe need to be more specific on the ‘tomato puree”. I just put tomatoes in the blender… Pretty sure my soup is going to suck.

    • says

      Toni, this recipe called for fresh tomatoes – you were right to put them in the blender, and it should definitely NOT suck! :) Let me know how it turns out!

  3. says

    I’m making this for the first time. I used three cans diced tomatoes. And I still ran them through the blender a little. It takes the tomatoes a long time to fully incorporate with the 1/2 and 1/2.

  4. says

    this recipe looks delish! I used to eat grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup in college. I just love it. Thanks for the yummy recipe.

    Hi! I just threw everything in the crockpot, but it’s a pink color! Will it turn red over the course of the time it takes to cook? Or did I mess something up?


    • says

      Did you make any substitutions? Ronni (she made the recipe) says that it shouldn’t be PINK but the colors of red can vary depending on the ripeness of the tomatoes. I am getting off the computer in a minute but you can email me therebelchick

    Just made this soup with some of my garden’s tomatoes (boy did we get a ton in this year) and we love it! I threw it back though the ninja to smooth it out towards the end of the crock pot time- my family is big on non-lumpy. Definitely a keeper for fresh tomatoes and a busy day. Thank you so much!

    I made this today but added my own flair….your recipe was the perfect base! Added sugar and plenty of salt to make it a bit sweeter. Husband ate two huge servings! Thank you for sharing!

  8. Terri Pendola says

    This is fantastic! I used fresh tomatoes and followed the recipe exactly…except for adding some dried parsley in addition the the oregano. In the last week, I have made 4 batches, sharing it with neighbors. Thanks for a great recipe!
