Crockpot Tomato Soup

Easy to make Crockpot Tomato Soup  
I made Crockpot Tomato Soup and Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches not too long ago on a Friday night, when LJ was having a friend stay over. Both happen to be family favorites, and fit into the whole Friday night pizza theme we usually do.

Crockpot Tomato Soup is easy to make, and perfect for the cool days of fall coming up. Once the kids head back to school, activities are sure to increase around our house with sports, music, and whatever else that might spark their interest. Making this the perfect meal for a busy weeknight, since I can fix it, and forget it.

Before I forget the recipe for Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches will be shared later this week, they are sooo good! Make sure to come back for the recipe! 

Crockpot-Tomato-Soup-Onions-Olive-Oil.jpgAdd 1 tablespoon Olive Oil and 1 medium sized Finely Diced Onion to a medium sized skillet. Sauté until Onion is softened and starting to caramelize. 
Add 3 whole Finely Chopped Carrots, 3 stalks Finely Chopped Celery, and 4 cloves Minced Garlic. Sauté until garlic is softened, and fragrant.Crockpot-Tomato-Soup-Tomatoes-Italian-Seasoning-Red-Pepper-Flakes-Salt-Pepper-Honey-Chicken-Stock.jpg
Add Vegetables to crockpot, 56-60 ounces Canned Tomatoes, 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning, a pinch of Red Pepper Flakes, 1/2 teaspoon Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Pepper, 1 tablespoon Honey, and 4 cups Chicken, Vegetables Stock, or Water.

Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 8 hours.
Remove the center part from your blender lid.  Fill 1/3rd of the way full with tomato mixture to prevent stem from blowing the lid off, and sending hot tomato soup everywhere. Place a clean old towel over the top hole to keep tomatoes from splattering, and pulse until smooth. Repeat with remaining tomatoes, until desired texture is reached. The kids like their Tomato Soup really smooth, so I do the whole pot. Alternatively an immersion blender can be used.

Pureed Tomato Soup can be returned to the crockpot and kept on warm until ready to enjoy!

  1. Sounds amazing! Pre-cooking that mirepoix is the key! I've never tried it in a crock-pot before. Great idea. Will have to do it. Pinned!
