Good old fashioned tomato basil soup made easy in the slow cooker.
Ingredients
  • 2-28oz. cans San Marzano tomatoes
  • 4 cups fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 medium sweet onions, chopped
  • 4 whole cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. sea salt, more if desired
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 900 ml. or 1 quart of vegetable broth
  • ½ cup fresh basil
  • 1½ cups half and half cream
  • Freshly grated Parmesan (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients except for the cream and Parmesan into a slow cooker. Cook on low for 5-7 hours. The veggies should be soft enough to puree at this point.
