Soup Swap - Basil Tomato Soup

That's all that was left in the crock . . . that should tell you how good it was . . . LOL . . .

1 can (28 oz) can of crushed tomatoes
1 cup chicken broth
8 fresh basil leaves, minced
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 cup and 3 tbsp whipping cream
3 tbsp and 2 tsp butter

In a large saucepan, bring the tomatoes and broth to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add basil and sugar. Reduce heat to low; stir in cream and butter.

This was my (Pam) contribution to the swap. This was a new recipe but I think everyone really enjoyed it. I served my soup with grilled cheese sandwiches.

  1. I am not a big fan of tomato soup, but this one had nice flavour for sure.
