World's BEST Tomato Soup recipe - Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

World's Best Tomato Soup Recipe




Yield 6 servings

This is not only the best tomato soup recipe, but it is also one of the easiest!  This Tomato Soup is creamy, full of flavor and just the perfect amount sweet.  You can make it using your slow cooker so that you can let it work it's magic all day and come home to a delicious pot of soup!



  1. Pour the tomatoes, broth, and garlic into the crock pot. If you are using dried basil, also add it now. Then close the lid and set the temperature to low and the time to 4-6 hours depending on when you will be ready to prepare and serve it.
  2. After cooking, open the lid and first stir in the sugar, then stir in the butter, and continue to stir until melted and well combined.
  3. Next stir continuously while pouring in the heavy cream very slowly. Continue to mix until it is incorporated throughout. If you are using fresh basil, chop the basil and stir it in now.
  4. Serve hot, topped with a dollop of pesto, croutons and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.


The soup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and reheated for 3-4 days.  You can also freeze the tomato basil soup for up to 3 months and reheat in the microwave, or on low on the stove top.
