    JanetB-KY's Note:

    From www.TopSecretRecipes.com This is a copycat (from Top Secret recipes) recipe of Applebees Creamy Tomato Basil soup. My whole family loved it when I made it, even my non tomato soup loving son. I would suggest NOT trying to sub dried Basil in this recipe as it depends on the flavor of the real basil for it's "spark". I used the kind you can get in a tube in the produce section. This is extraordinarily easy to make and makes enough for a full family dinner. We served it along side Paninis and it was a great meal! :-)

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Garnish

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and then add onion and garlic.
    2. 2
      Saute for about 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Add crushed tomatoes and chicken broth and bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Turn off the heat and let mixture cool, uncovered, for 30 minutes or so.
    5. 5
      You can let it sit for as long as an hour, if you like.
    6. 6
      Pour approximately half of the tomato mixture into a blender.
    7. 7
      Put the lid on the blender and hold it down with a dish towel.
    8. 8
      Mixture may still be hot and you don't want the lid of the blender to pop off.
    9. 9
      Blend on high speed for about a minute, pour the mixture into a large bowl or pitcher, then add the rest of the mixture to the blender and blend on high speed for a minute.
    10. 10
      Pour all of the pureed tomato mixture back into the saucepan and then add the remaining ingredients.
    11. 11
      Bring the soup back up to a bubble then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
    12. 12
      Serve approximately one cup of soup with a garnish of 3 or 4 croutons on top and a sprinkling of shredded Parmesan cheese.
    13. 13
      Note- Be careful of what brand of canned tomatoes you use. Use one you know is good. I have made this twice now and when I used the Kroger brand tomatoes, it was excellent. When I used a name brand, it actually had a rather metallic taste to it from the canned tomatoes so be aware of the flavor of what you use in this since the tomatoes are the prominent flavor.

      Made this tonight, and it is FANTASTIC; tastes EXACTLY like Applebee's Tomato Basil soup. Only changes I made: 5tsp dried basil for the fresh, and 2/3tsp dried parsley for the fresh as well. I also cut the sugar in half, just to make certain that the soup didn't become over-sweetened. About 1/6c of sugar worked quite well, and the soup didn't taste like candy. Absolutely LOVED it.

      Sidenote: I used Food Lion brand crushed tomatoes, and there was no metallic aftertaste.
