How to make the Best Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe
- Place tomatoes, herbs, salt, garlic, chicken stock, and the half and half into a slow cooker. Stir to combine, cook on high 2-4 hours or low 4-8 hours, stirring every 30 minutes if possible.
- 45 minutes before serving, use a stick blender and blend until smooth.
- Make a roux on the stovetop by melting the butter in a medium skillet, add the flour and whisk until there are no lumps. Continue to whisk for 2 minutes, slowly add in the remaining half and half, continue to whisk until it comes to a simmer.
- Pour mixture into the slow cooker with the soup and stir to combine. Add the goat cheese and tortellini. Stir to mix everything in, cook an additional 30 minutes, until the cheese is melted and tortellini is cooked through.
