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


  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


  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.

Serves 8.

Wow...this sounds great. How much half and half? I'll have to try it with a soy creamer, but it sounds yummy!
