  • Add plum tomatoes, vegetable broth, tomato sauce, parsley sprigs, salt, and sugar to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on High until tomatoes are stewed, 3 to 4 hours. Remove parsley sprigs.

  • Puree the soup using an immersion blender.

  • Stir half-and-half into pureed soup. Cover and cook until heated through, 20 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use a food processor to puree soup. Work in batches. Be careful as soup will be hot.

Substitute chicken broth for the vegetable broth if preferred.

Solid recipe. Kids loved it. Texture after using immersion blender was perfect. Adjustments: used 1 medium onion vs 2, added 2 small carrots (shredded) as it imparts a natural well balanced sweetness. It doesn’t make the soup sweet but really rounds out the flavors. Nordstrom also uses carrots in their famous tomato soup recipe which is what I was trying create here. Lastly, I think the amount of cream added is more of a preference. I used 1 cup of half and half Vs 2 cups. Read More

Excellent and easy. Made slight modifications based on what I had on hand. Instead of raw garlic I used a few cloves of garlic I already had roasted. I put the onions in raw. And I put in a big handful of flat leaf parsley (no stems) and instead of removing after cooking I just blended them in. Will definitely make again. Read More

Loved it. I added 1 cup of 1/2 and 1/2 and 1 cup of 2% milk. I also garnish with Rosemary. I just think tomatoes and rosemary go so well together. Read More
