Chunky Tomato Basil Soup Recipe | Add a Pinch

Tomato soup is well-known as a comfort food. It’s rich creaminess just soothes me from the minute I take a bite and this chunky tomato basil soup takes that comforting classic to a whole new level.

My obsession with this soup began sort of innocently. My mother and I visited a restaurant in Atlanta one day for lunch and enjoyed their delicious tomato basil soup. It was pureed to perfection. I recreated their tomato basil soup at home over and over and then one time, I didn’t puree it nearly as much as I should have. And I loved it even more! Now, you can certainly puree it as much as you like just to make sure that it fits your preference perfectly.

Now that I have created it just like I like it, it’s hard for me to imagine going back to any other tomato soup recipe. This one is just right!

Here’s how I make it.

  1. Robyn! I feel like we are food soulmates. I have been looking for this soup for years. There is a local cafe that makes a tasty tomato soup, but the cafe is a good drive from me and also a bit pricey, so I am always searching for a duplicate. Well, I have found it. I am also avoiding flour, pasta, and rice and decided to eat soup for lunch. I made a batch of this and fried up some ham. Delish — just like your other recipes I have tried. (Making your shredded beef recipe as we speak. It is always a favorite, and I am frequently asked for the recipe.) Thank you for posting this. I can’t wait until summer when homegrown tomatoes are ripe. This will be another staple!

    1. This is one of my favorite soups, too, Jennifer. It is absolutely delicious with fresh homegrown tomatoes. So glad you love the recipes. xo
