Creamy tomato soup is topped with crispy, cheesy baked mozzarella balls that turn this foodie classic into a melty, cheesy, bowl of YUM!
Saute chopped onions, celery, and carrots in 2 TBSP oil until tender.
Next, puree using an immersion blender until fabulously smooth and bisque-like. You can also blend the soup, in two batches, in your blender or food processor.
Serve piping hot topped with fresh basil and deliciously cheesy mozz balls. You'll have a grand old time dunking your balls in this soup. Enjoy!

This sassy soup can also be served with garlic parmesan chickpeas, croutons, or grilled cheese for dunking!
For a creamy vibrant bisque (as pictured above) follow recipe as directed. For a redder, tomato-packed soup feel free to add extra pureed tomatoes to the mix.
Both are deeelish -- I'll let you decide which one is your fav! Ooh! and if you want a cream-free tomato-basil soup recipe to add to your collection click here.
