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. I have all of these ingredients, so I definitely need to try this. This soup will go perfectly with the grilled cheese sandwiches I’ve been eating every day!

  2. Basic beginner question…do I take the seeds out of the tomatoEs first?
    AND…I cannot wait to try this…LOVE TOMATO SOUP!!

  3. 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!
