    Could you sub full fat coconut milk for whipping Creme?

  • Elle Gallipeau says:

    could this be cooked, blended, and then frozen again until ready to eat later?

  • Jennifer Price says:

    I wonder what you could substitute for the tomato sauce?

  • Valerie Brear says:

    Does it have to be heavy whipping cream

  • Leitulagi Gagamoe says:

    I want to make myself some soups for after I give birth, but I was thinking to divide this recipe into like 5 parts and freeze them in smaller bags etc.

    When I thaw, could I just cook it on the stovetop in a saucepan? Then blend up.

    I know it may sound like a super simple question lol. I’m a complete freezer meal noob, have never ever done it. And th is is my 4th kid 🤦🏽‍♀️ So I’ve been missing out.
    As I was looking through freezer meals on YouTube, I found they all COOKED their meals first which I personally did not like. I am so glad I kept looking around, I found you on Instagram. 💛 I watched all your YouTube videos, then bought your ebook bundle. I’m from Aus, so they conversion was a little too high for me to jump into your pro option (even though I really really wanted to!). BUT, I received your Recipe Index email and I saw he generous offer you gave to me and I COULD NOT resist it. Such a great savings and I just wanted to say thank you so much for dropping your price even lower than the online sale price.

    You have a new obsessed fan, all the way from the land down under! Xx.

    What could I add to the soup to thicken it a bit & how much?

  • Danielle Lanzer says:

    This soup is absolutely delicious!
    A huge hit in my house, the thing is it never makes it to the freezer bags because they always want to eat it!
    You won’t be sorry if you make this, it a 🌟win🌟 win!!!! 🥰😃🥰😃

  • Brenda Adams says:

    I love this soup!!! The only thing I did a little different was to add the heavy whipping cream (about 1-1 /2 T ) to the individual bowls as I served it. That way I could freeze the remaining soup. I recommend cooling the soup just a little before adding whipping cream so it doesn’t curdle. I cooked it on the stove top and it only took about 30-40 minutes.

  • Katy Gore says:

    Could this be cooked in the instanta pot? If so how long?

  • Cassie VanGorder says:

    Husband (vegetarian) and 7YO both loved it! They said it was the best tomato soup they ever had!! We paired it with Mozzarella/Sharp Cheddar Grilled cheese. So good and very easy to make! I will be making more of this for sure.

    Side note though: We used half the Heavy Whipping Cream in the recipe! Delish! By using half the whipping cream, and having the other half of the stick of butter, this recipe could be easily doubled for 2 frozen bags!

  • Ellen Kensinger says:

    I just tried this recipe. I made it and had it in the freezer for a month and just heated it up and tried it. It is DELICIOUS! I love Tomato Basil soup and have tried many recipes, but they all were off a bit and not what I was looking for. I thought I’d try one more time and I’m sure glad I did. You will not be disappointed. I will now be making more than one freezer bag at a time. And lucky for me, I’m the only one in my house that will eat it. This is a winner.

  • Lori Murphy says:

    I am on a low sodium diet and tomato soup is something I’ve missed. Although, not as low as – I’d like, this is much lower than most and I don’t feel guilty about eating it.

    And it’s sooo good! I will definitely be making this again.
