Today is a perfect day for this Slow Cooker Tomato Soup Recipe here in Cincinnati. It’s the coldest it has been all winter. When will spring arrive? This Creamy tomato Soup is quick and easy and is great with a yummy grilled cheese for dipping (yes, I need something to dip). The kiddos came home from school and were ready to dip in too! They had half the crock gone in no time.
Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Soup
I quite often purchase Tomato Soup in the can but was really looking forward to some homemade. Plus I am always looking to cream up my canned soups so having a good Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe is a must. Making this Tomato Soup in the Crock Pot allowed all the flavors to blend well.
28 ounce can Crushed Tomatoes
4 cup Chicken Broth
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Basil
1 cup Heavy Cream
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
2 tbsp Butter
Add tomatoes, chicken broth, oregano and basil to crock pot. Stir well.
Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8 hours.
Strain soup and puree chunks in blender (or blend well with immersion blender); return puree to slow cooker.
Add cream and butter and stir well.
Cold days really call for soup. It seems like we have been having MANY Many Soup days, ha ha! I will admit though that I do still eat quite a bit of soup and salads in the summer too. So this Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Soup will be great come warm weather too (if it ever gets here). I am trying to not give up hope, lol.

Loved this recipe. So easy and very tasty. The crushed tomatoes I bought at Aldi ended up being small enough chunks, I didn’t blend it at all. It was perfectly wonderful even without the blending.
We loved the flavor on this soup. I discovered I was out of basil so I just replaced the basil and oregano with two teaspoons of Italian seasoning. Even my toddlers ate theirs all up.
I was wondering how many this serves. I am needing to serve a family of 6. Would I be ok to make as is or should I double it?
I made this last night, we don’t love a heaping bowl, we made it to pair with grilled cheese. If you make it just to dip grilled cheese in, or for small bowls it should be enough, if you plan on having it as a meal, you might want to double it.
Would it work just as well if you blended the tomatoes before you cooked them?
Hi Mrs Roche! You could definitely give it a try. Be sure to let us know if you decide to blend before cooking and how well it turns out for you.
you know.. I find puree’d stuff is more likely to scorch .. (depending on the thickness of course) .. Personally i’d blend at the end!
