What you’ll need to make Crock Pot Tomato Soup

  • 5-7 Quart Crock Pot
  • Chicken stock– homemade or store bought. Every time I get a rotisserie chicken I make stock from it and freeze it for easy soups like this!
  • Canned tomato puree– or canned crushed tomatoes.
  • Tomato paste
  • Seasonings– dried basil, oregano, salt, pepper, sugar
  • Butter– just 2 tablespoons for added richness but you could add more as desired.
  • Heavy cream– I’ve used regular heavy cream and plant based and both turned out delicious.

  2. Add the butter and heavy cream and stir to incorporate.

Tips, Tricks, and Suggestions

  • Substitute vegetable stock for the chicken stock to make this vegetarian. I’ve also used plant based heavy cream and it’s delicious! You could leave out the cream completely for a vegan soup.
  • Serve this soup with grilled cheese sandwiches, grilled cheese croutons, homemade croutons, crusty bread, or garlic toast. Also amazing with a side salad such as my favorite 1905 Salad.
  • Add fresh chopped basil or flat leaf Italian parsley at the end for extra flavor.
  • Top with extra cream, a swirl of olive oil, freshly grated parmesan cheese, or parmesan crisps for extra flavor.
  • Use whole peeled tomatoes instead of pureed tomatoes. Cook as directed and use an immersion blender at the end for a smooth soup.
  • Refrigerate leftovers for 4-5 days. This makes the easiest tortellini soup! Reheat leftover soup in a pot on the stove, add frozen or refrigerated tortellini, cannellini beans, and spinach and you have a whole new dish!
  • This freezes well too! Let the soup cool completely before adding to a freezer safe container. I absolutely love these Souper Cubes for freezing! The soup will be good in the freezer for 6 months. Just reheat it on the stovetop from frozen.
