Fresh Tomato Soup (C1)

Fresh Tomato Soup (C1)
Recipe Author: Simmie Sinow

5 cups fresh tomatoes, diced (you decide whether to peel 'em)
1 Tbsp tomato paste
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 carrot, grated
1 onion, minced
1 Tbsp garlic, minced
1 tsp dried basil
1 bay leaf
Pepper to taste

This recipe is for a slow cooker (6-8 hours), but I imagine it can also be done stove-top -- 1 to 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally to break up the diced tomatoes!


  1. This tomato soup is much better than canned. I had to use canned tomatoes though, but it still was better than canned soup. Doesn't have that funny "canned" taste.

  2. Indeed, I totally agree! The first time I made it, I noticed the flavor of the tomatoes in it!!!
