Tomato soup for crockpot. For smoother soup puree in a blender or with an immersion stick. I have used just plain tomato juice and dried basil.

  1. Place tomatoes, vegetable juice, onion, garlic, basil, Italian seasoning, butter, salt and pepper in crock pot on low so this doesn't boil.
  2. last 1/2 hour add canned milk
  3. At end of cooking, puree.

Outstanding! I didn't bother to remove the tomato skins - just zapped them with the immersible blender. This is equal or better than any of the fancy, organic soups in those cartons. I used 2% evaporated milk and 3 Tblsp. of butter (not quite 1/4 cup). DH loved it, too.

It was OK. I didn't use V8 and instead googled its recipe and juiced celery, carrots, toms, ginger, apple, lemon, beet, oregano, half a bell pepper. I know its the healthiest soup I've ever eaten, but was a tad bit bland and pumpkin-colored. I think it needs more tomato, garlic and basil and less ginger. Also, perhaps because I didn't use V8 (which may add sweeteners) mine needed to be more sweet! Maybe my tomatoes (organic, imported - I live in Singapore) were less than ripe. But I definitely recommend the juicer if you're into home made soups.

Not all that easy to make but very good. It was kinda sweet but had a good flavor. My DW did not like the sweetness but 3 of us did. We used fresh hanover tomatoes and they make a excellent base. overall more liked it than not. The sweetness was the biggest factor as to how our guests liked it
