Tomato Soup Slow Cooker Recipe

Sunday Slow Cooker: Creamy Tomato-Vodka Soup

The slow cooker isn't just great for braised meats and stews; it's also the ideal vehicle for making smooth and creamy blended soups. This recipe is a staple of mine; it's wonderful on the fly because it calls for commonplace ingredients like broth and canned plum tomatoes.

When pureeing the hot soup, I recommend allowing it to cool slightly and partially covering it as you use an immersion blender. Or, opt for a standing blender if you're worried about being splashed by hot soup.
For a complete meal, serve with crusty homemade garlic bread and, if you want to add a little more protein, a topping of crispy baked prosciutto. See the recipe when you read more.

Tomato Soup Slow Cooker Recipe 2010-03-05 14:33:03

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 onions, sliced
  3. 2 to 3 small cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  4. One 32-ounce container (4 cups) vegetable broth
  5. Two 28-ounce cans Italian plum tomatoes, drained
  6. One 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  7. 1/4 cup vodka
  8. 6 sprigs flat-leaf parsley
  9. 1 teaspoon salt
  10. 1 teaspoon sugar
  11. 2 cups half-and-half

Directions

  1. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring often, for 30 seconds.
  2. Add the broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, vodka, parsley, salt and sugar to the slow cooker; add the sautéed onions and garlic. Cover and cook on high heat to stew the tomatoes, 5 hours. Discard the parsley sprigs.
  3. Using a blender, immersion blender, or food processor, purée the soup in batches (be careful—the liquid is hot). Stir in the half-and-half. Cook in the covered slow cooker on low heat until heated through, 20 to 30 minutes.
