This recipe is all about using sun-dried tomatoes to help boost up that tomato flavour and when the soup is done, use an immersion blender to blend the soup of your desired consistency. But before I blend it, I add in a whole handful of fresh basil leaves.

So allow the cooker make your tomato soup for dinner tonight and let us know your experience. Do remember to use the grilled cheese sandwich. This soup is made for it.

Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, roasted garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, sugar, dried basil, Italian seasoning, broth, parmesan rind, bay leaf, basil pesto, and balsamic vinegar. Cover and cook over low heat for 8 hours for the best flavour or 4 on high for a quicker meal.
