My Amazing Tomato Basil Soup (Like Applebee's®)

Rated as 4.2 out of 5 Stars
0

"This tastes just like the tomato basil soup they serve at Applebee's®. The hubs loved it so that's saying something! I always add a pinch of sugar to tomato-based sauce, but I'm not sure that it needed it. Served it with baked fries with seasoned salt and grilled gouda cheese sandwiches on thick crusty bread, panini-style."

I’ve never had tomato basil soup at Applebee’s, but I can only hope that it’s as good as this. The fresh herbs and marinara add layers of flavor, and the croutons (mine were garlic & butter) an...

Yummy just as written, VERY close to Applebee's! I added a splash of heavy cream because, well, what can't be made better by adding heavy cream!?!

We really liked this soup and will definitely make again. I also froze some for later meals and still tasted good. I made it in a crockpot and allowed it to simmer on low for 2 hours.

Delicious! I used Amy's Organic cream of tomato soup for the base. It's not condensed, so I just used about 1/4 cup of water. I didn't sauté all the herbs and garlic, but used dried herbs from m...
