There’s something about homemade soups that just warms the soul. Even though it’s already regularly in the 80s here in South Texas, I still find myself craving this Tomato Basil soup—and I’ve never really been a Tomato fan! Guys, when I tell you this is one of the best soups I’ve ever had…it is so creamy, so flavorful, and so pretty too! I love to make grilled cheese sandwiches to dunk in it. Perfect to warm you up if it’s still cold where you live or just because it’s so delicious! It keeps well in the fridge too, so I usually put some in my husband’s thermos for work lunches—if there’s any left! Even my super picky two year old LOVES this soup. He eats a spoonful and says, “Mmm…it’s good!” Makes me smile every time 🙂
The recipe below includes all the ingredients to create the creamy, decadent version of this soup, BUT if you’d like to cut some calories and keep the soup a bit healthier, you can omit the butter and heavy cream altogether OR reduce the quantities OR sub with low fat milk to still get a bit of creaminess. Even without the dairy, this soup is super tasty and full of fresh flavors!
