Fresh Slow Cooker Tomato Soup

Fresh Slow Cooker Tomato Soup from @hamiltonbeachTomato season is something many people look forward to all year, as ripe, summer tomatoes have a special flavor that no off-season imposter can replicate. That means it’s time to grab buckets of fresh, local tomatoes from store shelves, so you can make all the fresh salsa, gazpacho and tomato soup you can.

This recipe uses lots – about 4 pounds – of these fresh tomatoes to make a velvety soft soup that tastes just like summer, especially with a garnish of fresh basil and tangy goat cheese. And surprisingly, it comes together easily in your slow cooker, so you don’t even have to do much work to enjoy it.Fresh Slow Cooker Tomato Soup from @hamiltonbeach

Use a stovetop-safe slow cooker, if you have one, to cut down on extra dishes, and saute the aromatics briefly before adding the remaining ingredients to the crock. In a few hours, simply puree the soup until it’s creamy and smooth, then stir in some goat cheese and watch it melt into the soup.

    I made this with some small changes. Rather than cooking first, I pureed the tomatoes cold and added everything to the crock pot with the puree. It worked out great and avoids risk of burns when blending hot foods. I also used chicken stock instead of vegetable, because its what I had on hand… couldn’t really tell either way. Love this recipe!! It is so easy and a great way to use tomatoes in the summer.

    This was delicious! I didn’t have any garlic so that was omitted and I used water instead of stock so I thought that might affect the flavour but it tasted great! Nice fresh flavour!

    Next time use a blending stick instead. It will all stay in the one pot. Works for Alton Brown.
