Tomato Basil Soup

tomato basil soup

I am so glad my basil grew well last summer, because now in the dead of winter when it is below 0°, I can enjoy the fruits of my labor! I use tomatoes that I canned, but you can use canned tomatoes, and basil that I harvested and froze from my garden. This home-made tomato basil soup is easy, quick and delicious! Tomato basil soup is a great choice to fill a bread bowl.

Tomato and basil soup:

  • 1 quart tomato juice (16oz)
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 tablespoons frozen basil (closest thing to fresh basil leaves in the winter!)

Pour tomato juice into medium cooker. Wisk flour, sugar, salt, and water in a small bowl then add to tomato juice. Chop basil and add to tomato mixture. Simmer until thick and hot. Enjoy!
