Tomato Basil Soup

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 10


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 56 ounces diced fire roasted tomatoes (4-14 ounce cans)
  • 1/4 cup dried basil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 fresh chopped basil leaves


  • In a large soup pan mix together tomatoes with juice, heavy cream, sugar, and a garlic salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil. Turn down heat.
  • Simmer, and stir occasionally. for a minute or two.
  • Blend the soup with an immersion blender.
  • If you don’t have an immersion blender, let the mixture cool a bit.
  • Then, put it in your blender and puree in batches.
  • Return soup to the pot. Heat to a simmer.
  • Turn off heat and whisk in the cheese.
  • Taste to see if a little salt and pepper is needed.
  • Serve in bowls with extra cheese like Mozzarella or grated Parmesan and chopped fresh basil on top.


This soup makes everything better! Serve with croutons on top, garlic bread or, better yet, a grilled cheese sandwich for dunking and let me tell you, life is good! If you can’t find cans of fire roasted tomatoes, regular canned tomatoes will work fine.  You can use less heavy cream if you like.

  3. Can you please make your recipes printer friendly? I hate the waste of printing two pages when one will do.
