Classic Homemade Tomato Basil Soup

This homemade tomato soup is smooth, hearty and oh so flavorful! It’s the perfect cozy comfort food for these cold fall evenings.

One thing I love about this time of the year is the warm comfort foods. I’ve always looked forward to dinner in with a yummy soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. As the weather outside gets cooler the more I bust out my dutch oven and soup recipes. This homemade tomato soup is one of my favorites. It’s hearty yet smooth and extremely flavorful!

Since today is the first Saturday of November I’ve joined my Cozy Living friends, hosted by Jennifer from Town and Country Living. Each month we share home ideas and recipes that will make your home just a little cozier. When I think cozy this soup is the first recipe that comes to mind. I know you’re going to love it too!

I like to make this soup in my 6 qt. dutch oven but you can certainly use any large heavy duty pot.

Depending on where you’re located it can be difficult to find large quantities of fresh basil unless you grow it yourself. If you’re local I have found that Sprouts grocery stores carries it and at a great price. 

I used to make this soup by adding small batches slowly to my blender, blending and then repeating until the soup was smooth. A few weeks ago I finally purchased a little hand blender and I’m so glad I did. It made this process so much faster and easier!
