Easy Crockpot Tomato Soup

Gluten Free Living – 2017

Okay, I LOVE homemade Tomato soup, and Easy Crockpot Tomato Soup is one of those recipes I just can’t get enough of! It’s thick, tomatoey, and seasoned with basil, oregano, thyme and parsley–some of my favorite herbs. While I do use a few fresh veggies like bell pepper, leeks, celery, carrots, onions and garlic, the ease of this recipe is that all the tomatoes come from a can. Plus, everything is thrown into the crockpot so it’s incredibly E-A-S-Y, E-A-S-Y, E-A-S-Y!!! Yes, I like easy.

Blog Update: By now, if you’ve been following my blog you’ll notice that I have finally added ads to my blog. For almost 5 years I’ve tried to do without them, but it is starting to cost me so much money each month to do this, that I really needed to recoup some of my losses. My husband has been very generous in purchasing anything I’ve wanted or needed to make my blog a success, but it’s time to give back. For those of you who don’t like ads, I’m sorry, but I can’t keep blogging without them. Who knows, perhaps you’ll even find a few things you like!

Every now and then, I get in a real mood for tomato soup. Yes, I admit it. I grew up LOVING Campbell’s tomato soup. Don’t judge me! It is still one of my favorite comfort foods. But I prefer to make my own homemade Tomato Soup these days. I love making them with roasted tomatoes, vegan, vegan with roasted tomatoes, vegan with veggies, vegan and pureed, with parmesan cheese, with roasted garlic, and even copycat recipes like La Madeleine’s. I can never get enough tomato soup. Some of my Tomato Soup recipes are certainly more involved than others, but this is not one of them. Easy Crockpot Tomato Soup is probably my EASIEST Tomato Soup recipe. It’s a dump and go recipe that’s awesome for something so simple.

I served this Easy Crockpot Tomato Soup with homemade Ranch croutons (soooo delicious), and lots of parmesan cheese, but if you need to keep the recipe vegan, you can omit both and be sure to stick to vegetable broth in the recipe rather than substituting chicken broth. Regardless, this soup is healthy, low calorie, gluten free and clean eating. It’s also the perfect dinner for Meatless Mondays or those observing Lent. Oh, and did I mention, it’s E-A-S-Y??? 🙂 Yes, indeed, great for a quick dinner when you don’t have tons of time on your hands.

Easy Crockpot Tomato Soup is very thick and creamy. But if you want the soup a little thinner, you can add a little more vegetable broth.

 

Here’s what I did.

Cook on high about 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Puree soup with an immersion blender (carefully), until soup is smooth. If desired, you can add more vegetable broth after pureeing, but I prefer a thicker soup, so I did not add any additional broth.

Easy Crockpot Tomato Soup is healthy, low calorie, gluten free and vegan if you omit the parmesan cheese shavings on top. (If you choose to use croutons, you will have to locate vegan and gluten free bread and make your own croutons from scratch).

 

Here’s the recipe.

Easy Crockpot Tomato Soup | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen | this delicious homemade #tomato #soup is amazing comfort food. It's so easy since it's made in the #slowcooker. #glutenfree & #vegan if you eliminate the #parmesancheese as a garnish.
Instructions
  1. Place tomatoes, juice, onion, celery, garlic, bell pepper, leek and carrots in a crockpot.
  2. Add vegetable broth.
  3. Add seasonings and cook on high about 3 to 3 ½ hours.
  4. Check seasonings; add more, if desired.
  5. Puree ingredients with an immersion blender until smooth.
  6. If you want a thinner soup add additional vegetable broth at this time and stir into hot soup.
  7. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with homemade croutons and parmesan cheese shavings, if desired.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you want a thinner soup, you can add up to 16-oz. of additional vegetable broth but I would not add this until after the mixture is pureed, so the soup is not thinned prematurely.

NOTE: You can substitute chicken broth for the vegetable broth if you don’t need to keep the recipe vegan. Low-sodium tomato juice can be used as a last resort, but you will definitely have to dilute the soup with additional vegetable or chicken broth or the soup may end up tasting too much like tomato sauce.

NOTE: If trying to keep the soup gluten free and vegan, eliminate parmesan cheese as a garnish, and use a gluten free/vegan bread to make homemade croutons.

Okay, I admit, I enjoy A LOT of croutons and parmesan cheese with my soup. 🙂 I wasn’t planning on taking pictures of the way I actually served it for myself, but I couldn’t resist.
