Crockpot Tomato Soup Recipe

Creamy Crockpot Tomato Soup is a good recipe for when you want a comforting appetizer or main course with minimal efforts! And yes, it is so easy that you can make it hands-off with your crockpot.

The main ingredient, the tomatoes, are so popular and versatile, and a great blanket for different flavors. Other ways we enjoy this veggie, is by adding it to a salad or slice it thinly and top your favorite pizza with it. Or, you can even add it in eggs to make a frittata or add eggs to it to make shakshuka!

With colder weather approaching, we crave some much-needed soup and a melty grilled cheese sandwich to go with it. Try this easy recipe and I know that your family will love it as much as ours does!

Is Tomato Soup Healthy?

Yes! Tomatoes are packed with vitamins and minerals that are good for the eyes, heart, and skin. The antioxidants that can be found in it can also help prevent cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

While eating them raw as in salads is already beneficial, cooking it will not exactly be detrimental. In this recipe, since they are cooked it makes them a better source of lycopene, a phytochemical that can be absorbed by our body.

What do you need to make Slow Cooker Tomato Soup?

Once you got your crockpot ready, then, it is time to prep the ingredients! For this recipe, you will need these basic ingredients:

  • fresh tomatoes
  • onion
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • dried basil leaves
  • salt (you may use kosher)
  • ground black pepper
  • cream
  • vegetable stock
  • olive oil

You may also other herbs like dried oregano or thyme, and other vegetables like celery, red bell pepper, and carrots. You can also use fresh garlic and onions rather than using the form if you like.

How do you make Slow Cooker Tomato Soup?

  • Roast: Preheat the oven at 425 degrees and then, put in the tomatoes and the garlic drizzled with olive oil. Take them out once you observe charring. This step adds another dimension of flavor. Another option is to sauté the tomatoes.
  • Cook: Put everything in the crockpot except for the cream. If you will use a low setting, it will take 6 hours to finish. Otherwise, it will only take 3 hours on a high setting. During the last few minutes, stir in the cream.
  • Puree: Once done, blend it until everything is smooth. Put it back to the crockpot to keep it warm.
  • Serve: Garnish with some croutons and serve!

How do you make tomato soup creamy?

You can add the cream just like what we did in this recipe. Any kind of cream may it be heavy, half and half, or light will do.

How to Store:

  • Refrigerate: Let it cool completely and transfer to airtight containers. Refrigerate it for up to 3 or 5 days.
  • Freeze: If you plan to freeze it for later, do not add the cream just yet. To freeze, let it cool completely and transfer to freezer bags. Squeeze out air and seal. It will keep for up to 3 or 4 months.
  • To reheat: Thaw and reheat on the stovetop. Stir in the cream towards the end.

Recipe Tips:

  • If you like it spicy, add in red chili pepper flakes.
  • You can add dairy but make sure to do it towards the end of the cooking to prevent it from curdling.
  • Serve it with French bread!

Slow Cooker Tomato Soup
Author: Catalina Castravet Serves: 6 servings
Prep time: 30 minutes Cook time: 6 hours Total time: 6 hrs 30 mins

Ingredients

Garlic Roasted Tomatoes:

  • 3 lbs  cherry tomatoes  (washed and halved lengthwise)
  • 10 cloves  garlic  (peeled and smashed)
  • 2 tablespoons  olive oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon  black pepper 
  • 1 teaspoon  Italian herbs 

Soup:

  • 1  sweet onion  (diced)
  • 1  red bell pepper  (deseeded and diced)
  • 3 tablespoons  tomato paste 
  • 3 cups  vegetable broth 
  • 1 teaspoon  dried basil leaves 
  • 1 teaspoon  red pepper flakes 
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon  black pepper 
  • 1 cup  heavy cream  (or half and half)

Garnish:

  • 1/2 cup  grated parmesan cheese 
  •  Fresh basil leaves 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place tomatoes and garlic cloves on a baking tray, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, season with salt, pepper, and dried Italian herbs, roast for about 25 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft and charred on the tops.
  3. Remove tray from oven and transfer the tomatoes and garlic to the slow cooker with all the juices from roasting.
  4. Add the diced onion, red bell pepper, season with dried basil, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
  5. Add the tomato paste and broth, stir to combine.
  6. Cover and cook on High for 3 hours or on Low for 6 hours.
  7. When there are 30 minutes of cooking remaining, stir in the heavy cream, cover and cook for 30 minutes.
  8. Using an immersion blender or a Vitamix, puree the mixture until it’s very smooth. I transferred the soup in two batches into the blender to puree it, but if you use an immersion blender you can puree the soup directly in the crockpot.
  9. Serve garnished with grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves.
  10. Store in the fridge for up to 3-4 days or freeze for later.

Love tomato soup! My daughter loves anything with tomatoes in it and this is always a favorite for her with some grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner. I have never made it in the slow cooker though, thanks for sharing the recipe!

I only recently started trying to make soup from scratch (instead of from a can.) This looks like a delicious and easy recipe for creamy tomato soup.

This is the best time of year for a good bowl of tomato soup. A homemade slow cooker tomato soup is even better. I'm going to save this recipe so I can try it when we get a home again, pretty sure we can't whip this up in the hotel but wait? Maybe we can. I'll have to find our slow cooker in storage!

I was shocked when my youngest son told me that he likes tomato soup. He said it is one of his favorite things on the school lunch menu. I bet he would love this homemade version.
