  • 4 large tomatoes, ripe and juicy
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Start by blanching the tomatoes. Boil water in a large pot and make a small “X” mark on the bottom of each tomato. Drop them into the boiling water for about 30 seconds, then transfer them to an ice bath. The skins will easily peel off. Remove the skins and chop the tomatoes.
  2. In a separate pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and garlic, sauté until fragrant and translucent.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and basil leaves to the pot. Cook for about 10 minutes until the tomatoes break down and release their juices.
  4. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Allow it to cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.
  5. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can transfer the soup to a regular blender in batches, but be sure to let it cool slightly first.
  6. Return the soup to the pot, stir in the heavy cream, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Simmer for another 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  8. Serve hot, garnished with a sprig of fresh basil and a drizzle of cream if desired. Enjoy your Homemade Hygge: Creamy Tomato Basil Soup!
