How to Make this Creamy Tomato Soup without a Ninja Foodi Blender
I prefer the Ninja Foodi soup-maker blender to the other options I’m about to share for two main reasons:
- Add your ingredients to the Ninja Foodi Cold/Hot Blender and just walk away. 30 minutes later you have soup!
- Since it’s a high-tech blender, it makes a smooth, creamy soup every time. No chunks or gritty consistency.
But if you don’t have a blender with a heat function, your regular blender will blend all the ingredients together, and then you can pour it into a pan and heat it on the stove.
You can also cook the soup on the stovetop in a pan and use a stick blender to blend it up. You’ll probably need to blend the soup for several minutes to reach a smooth consistency, though.
Ingredients for Ninja Foodi Blender Tomato Soup with Basil
You’ll need these ingredients for the soup:
- San Marzano whole tomatoes
- Vegetable broth
- Tomato sauce
- Dried basil
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder pepper
- Celery salt
- Heavy whipping cream
If you can’t find San Marzano tomatoes, you can substitute diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, but I think the San Marzano tomatoes are superior. They are usually a sweeter tomato than most brands of diced tomatoes I’ve tried.
If you do use diced tomatoes instead of the San Marzano tomatoes, the soup may taste a little more tangy or tart. Just add a bit more heavy cream to tone down the tartness.
