Copycat Panera Creamy Tomato Basil Soup Recipe

Author: Kimber

Ingredients

  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp crushed garlic
  • 1 14 oz can chicken broth {or 2 cups}
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 15-20 Basil leaves chopped

Instructions

  • Combine the tomatoes, broth, and garlic bring to a boil and let boil for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to low and stir in the sugar and butter and mix until they are dissolved, melted and well combined.
  • Very slowly pour in the heavy cream while simultaneously stirring until all the cream is combined and the soup is creamy.
  • Stir in the basil.
  • I like to serve it hot garnished with a dollop of pesto and freshly grated parmesan cheese!
