Tomato Basil Soup

I'm so sorry I've been lacking on post lately. Things around my house have been a little hectic. I decided to make a soup that's one of my hubby's favorites since he's on the mend from a really bad ear infection. An added bonus is I think I heard today is the official first day of fall and we're getting a cold front today to bring the temps down to the 70's, so it's good timing for a good soup.

I decided to wing it since I couldn't find my original recipe I always used. This actually came out to be the best one I've made since and it's a super easy recipe to toss together and have on the table in 30 minutes.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

1 (26 oz) can plus 2 (10.75 oz) cans condensed tomato soup
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon dried basil
dash of red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes or until desired thickness.


  1. I was with you from the start but when I saw whipped cream I became a devoted puppy. Allie, this sounds wonderful. Happy first day of fall.

  2. Hope Hubby is feeling better. Soup looks good. Tomato is one of my favorites.
