I used 6 large tomatoes and threw them into my crockpot with
2 tbsp buttera few bay leavessaltpepperdried basiland garlic powder.
I then added 2 cups of chicken broth and set my crockpot on LOW for 6 hours.
After 6 or so hours, the tomatoes will be soft and falling apart. I took a fork to them and mashed them up.
Then I used my awesome hand-blenderto smooth things out even more. If you don't have a hand-blender, a normal blender or mixer will work just fine. Just be very careful, the soup is SO hot!
Finally, I added1 cup of heavy cream and grated Parmesan cheese to my soup.
Serve up and enjoy with a grilled cheese sandwich!
This recipe makes a TON of soup,
so I would recommend freezing your leftovers
Happy Tomato Souping!
