10 Minute Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Creamy tomato soup with fresh basil is one of my very favorite things ever. This was born out of leftovers and came together in 10 minutes, but you'd never guess because the depth of flavor is so good!

It is similar to my Creamy Tomato Soup, but better because of the fresh basil.  Paired with a grilled cheese sandwich, this made the perfect lunch. I used my Smoky Pimento Spread for the cheese in my sandwich and homemade bread.

10 Minute Tomato Basil Soup

Bring to a strong simmer for 10 minutes, enjoy! 

The fresh basil, roasted garlic and tomato reminded me of Summer!

Here's a pic from a beach 10 miles away from my house! I can't wait for the snow to melt and the weather to warm up!


  1. You always make the best soups!what a beautiful picture!

  2. This looks delish! I'm gonna make this tonight for my hubby he will love it!! I think I may add in some spinach to up the green factor!

  3. Soup is amazing! :) That picture is great, I wish Atlanta had some scenic scenes like that.

  4. Hey! I am putting together a vegan community blog. It is a blog where any vegan blogger can post whenever they want, promote what they want, pretty much do whatever they want. If you are interested and have a blogger account just send me your blog account email to and I can add you as an author so you can freely post, or you can send any submissions to and I can manually post them.

    Let me know if you are interested in contributing and I can send you more info if needed.

  5. I see a giant sideways Michelin tire man in those clouds, making a power fist.

  6. I love the way you use beans! I still have to try the smokey pimento spread...thanks for reminding me.

    The beach photo is beautiful, those cloud formations are very dramatic.

  7. Oh wow...that sounds delish!

  8. BrRilliant! I love how inventive you are with leftovers - so much so that they aren't even leftovers, just new ingredients! I always just eat everything in the same way I prepared it for (wow, that was a wonky sentence!)

  9. Wow! Those clouds are crazy!

  10. Tomato, basil and garlic = perfect soup combo. It sounds rich and delicious.
