Simple Homemade Creamy Tomato Soup

Simple Creamy Tomato Soup | In under 20 minutes you can have delicious homemade soup ready to server on a cold winters day with items from your pantry We’ve been having chilly days here and even colder nights in Michigan, parts have even seen frost, and it puts me in the mood for my homemade creamy tomato soup. I’ve tried several recipes over the years but I have one secret ingredient that I feel makes this the best thick, and creamy soup recipe you’ll find and here’s a bonus it’s super easy to make. You can use fresh tomatoes or canned and both ways is delicious. I happen to have fresh in my garden right now so I’m going to use them. I even freeze the base to this recipe and pull it out of the freezer when snow flies and pretend it’s late summer and tomato season. 

We have a local pub Schuler’s and they make a fresh tomato basil soup that’s the best I’ve ever had and this recipe is as close to that as I can come. I actually crave their tomato soup even when the weather’s not cold. Since they’re not giving out their secret recipe I had to invent my own and we had it for dinner last night along with a grilled cheese sandwich made from 3 cheeses. Yummy! and comforting.
