  • love tomato soup quick and easy

    Art Sir on

  • Try these few quick easy improvements to make this recipe go from good to great:
    -Add some red pepper flakes, a dash of brown sugar, and 2-3 cloves fresh minced garlic to the browning butter to add some great depth in flavor. The heat will help the garlic flavor bloom.
    -I feel the recipe should use some cream, more so than half-and-half. Makes it even more creamy.

  • Hi everyone. Can I use a regular jar instead of the wild side jar? If not let me know when it’s on sale.

  • Not a lot of flavor but a really good base to build something amazing on! I made one batch as is then mixed it with my second batch which had half the water, some garlic, red pepper flakes, and extra seasoning. When the two batches were mixed it was an awesome soup!

  • I don’t think the jar makes a difference.

  • Which button should I select if the only options are Lo, Med, High, Hot, Smoothie, or Pulse?

  • Thank you!

    Cav on

  • Sorry about that, we’re working on updating our recipes to have more universal instructions but until then, please refer to these blend cycle conversions: http://www.blendtec.com/blo… So, for this recipe, blend on Med for about 50-60 seconds. Hope this helps!

  • Your Tomato-Basil Soup ,just made a hit in my home. I did make one change instead of the tomato juice I used 3 c of sun-dried tomatoes what a flavor.

    Andrew on

  • Great suggestions! Made a fabulous soup. A little salty. Instead of tomato juice, next time I’ll just add a few extra tomatoes and some more water.

  • i remember seeing a demostration of tomato soup, where it was just garlic , whole tomato and basil, no sauce pan. Can you still do it that way? I thought that was blendtec "official" way of making tomato soup

    Art on

  • Seriously, this is aggravating. I thought the whole thing about this blender was it cooked the soup for you. There is nothing specific to Blentec in this recipe except it seems so many recipes specify the wild side jar and the upscale button selections.

    Some of us just have the regular Blendtec…that doesn’t seem good enough for Blendtec because none of the recipes seem to be for the "Blendtec" I own.
