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.
