Nordstrom Cafe Tomato Basil Soup

three white bowls with soup

This recipe is from the Nordstrom blog, The Thread




  1. In a large dutch oven, sauté the carrots and onions until translucent, about 10 minutes over medium heat.
  2. Add in the basil and crushed red pepper if using
  3. Add the tomatoes (in their juices) and the chicken broth and bring to a broil
  4. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes
  5. Remove soup from the heat and blend using a stick blender or in batches in a blender. Blend until completely smooth.
  6. Add the cream and return pot to the heat for a minute or two, stirring to blend.
  7. Season with salt & pepper


Ladle soup into bowls and serve Nordstrom style..with a crostini on the rim of the bowl. Sprinkle with a little fresh basil.

Because we don’t always have heavy cream on hand…I have substituted coconut milk replacing the heavy cream. It has a different flavor, but so many fewer calories, that I actually prefer it.
