This was a new recipe that I tried and brought to a church potluck. Everyone liked it and several wanted the recipe so I thought I would post it on here so they could reference it. I like an easy crockpot meal so I will definitely be trying this again.
Creamy Tomato Soup
28 oz. diced tomatoes (try not to use canned tomatoes if at all possible due to BPA)
1 small onion diced
1-2 stalks of celery diced
1-2 large carrots diced
4 cups chicken broth (homemade is best)
1 T basil
8oz cream (from grassfed cows is best)
1- 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
Freshly grated parm cheese for topping
Combine tomatoes, onion, celery, carrots and chicken broth in crockpot. Cook on low 8 hours or high for 5 until veggies are soft. Strain out tomatoes and veggies and some broth and puree in blender until smooth. You can puree all of it for a smoother soup or puree half for a semi-chunky soup. I left a few chunks. Pour back into crockpot and add basil, cream and salt. Cook for another hour. Top with a generous portion of grated parmesan cheese when serving.

If you love a good crockpot meal, or are busy and short on time, I highly recommend, these two books by Stacy Myers from Stacy Makes Cents. Take the trouble out of dinner and use you slow cooker. I do receive a small commission if you purchase through my links. Keep Crockin’ is her brand new book because her first book, Crock On was such a major success.
