Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Soup

It’s that time of year when I start to gather recipes that I can use during Passover.  While I’ve made the Barefoot Contessa’s Tomato Basil Soup in years past, I just found a new recipe from Phoebe Lapine, that’s likely to replace it.  As the title suggests, it is a slow cooking recipe (about 5 hours), followed up with a quick blend of the mixture, leaving you with a delicious tomato soup with a kick.  It’s a great to make during the weekend, with enough leftovers for the start of your week.  Best part for me, no dairy and minimal clean up!  Will this make your Passover list?

Some notes

  • I used 2 tbsp. of olive oil, instead of 3 tbsp
  • My carrots were small, so I used 4
  • I used Tabatchnick Chicken Broth, only because I find it generally adds a good flavor to tomato soups.  However, next time I make it, will be trying with No-Chicken Broth
  • I used 1/2 tbsp. Kosher salt, instead of 1 tbsp.
  • Instead of a blender, I used an immersion blender, for a few seconds.
  • I think this recipe yields more like 10 servings
