Tomato Basil Soup Recipe

Adapted from Made From Pinterest
Cook Time 7 hrs
Total Time 7 hrs
Course Soup


  • 1 1/4 cup Pesto sauce I used Costco's. It is UH-mazing! But you can make your own too
  • 5 1/2 cups diced/ stewed tomatoes Three 14.5 oz cans
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup diced onion
  • 2 stalks celery sliced
  • 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp sugar which helps to cut down on the acidity of the tomatoes
  • 1 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream


  • In a crockpot, pour in all of the stewed tomatoes, sugar and oregano. Set on high.
  • In a large sauce pan, melt the butter and add the sliced celery and chopped onion. Cook until onion is clear and celery is soft. Around 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and then stir in the pesto. When well incorporated, combine this mixture into the crockpot with the tomatoes.
  • Cook in your crockpot for 6 hours on high. Make sure you walk into your kitchen every once in a while just to smell the amazing aroma it is going to provide!
  • After six hours, transfer the soup by two cupfuls at a time into a blender and blend until smooth. Put into a separate bowl until all the soup has been blended. Then transfer the blended soup back into the crockpot and add your heavy cream.
  • Let cook for one more hour and then get ready for this soup to disappear. Never EVER make just one batch. I always double this!
