      so tomato soup is basicly tomato sauce blended with white bread?

    2. Jeff Stiles

      Mmm. That looks like some delicious tomato soup. Think I will try that.

    3. Shikhar Srivastava

      Make sure you cool the soup before blending I learned that the hard way

    4. London M

      it's 4:30am and I'm on the verge of tears because I finally have a good, creamy, DAIRY FREE tomato soup that's not essentially just watered down pasta sauce. the dairy allergy struggles are all too real

    5. Boo Bax

      Grilled. Cheese. Croutons.

    6. Holly Williams

      Is there a reason you didnt cover the tomato soup when simmering for (up to) one hour? I dont trust mine to not reduce to a paste :(

    7. Allen Lewis

      I thought it was going to be even more basic than that... like "Here's some examples of canned vegetables that go well together in a blender! Microwave and enjoy!" I should have known better.

    8. Gregory Specht

      yo babs(andrew if you prefer) considering the amount of butter/bacon grease and sugar in your life, how do you stay thin?? real question... I need answers

    9. Randomizer Wrestling

      Kosher salt + Lopez Alt = babish

      I'd love to see some more traditional soups. Some "just throw whatever vegetables you got into a pot and profit" soups.

    12. USBCORD11

      Feel better sir

    13. varškėsapkepas

      Love me them blender soups...

      How DARE you get sick and mess up the schedule. Shame on you for beeing human and not a video producing machine.

    16. CamTheKitty

      As a side note, a great way to go the grill cheese in that setup is just to leave them as "fingers". Great for dipping

    17. Malvin Keone

      Nobody Babish:let flavors know each other

    18. GreyLord Alek

      Are there any tomato substitutes that you can use to make a soup with, like tomato soup? I've always loved tomato soup, but learned i'm allergic to tomatoes, and want to still be able to eat the delicious soup, even if the taste is a bit different.

    19. Miss Dor's daughter

      those things are not soup!

    20. Jose G.

      Pro Tip! If you and dairy are not on speaking terms, use Ghee instead of butter! High smoke point, all of the flavor, none of the pesky milk solids. You can get it at Trader Joe's or most supermarkets' international sections.

    21. Can we get to 10,000 subscribers ?????

    22. Jennifer Smith

      Do you cook with salted or unsalted butter for the first soup?

    23. Micki Aviado

      Can you do mushroom soup? My wife loves mushroom soup but my previous attempts did not end well lol

      1. Kate Neonne

        I have a cream of mushroom soup that my culinary school gave me. Want me to write it down for you?

    24. Illyr

      Aaaaa yes, delicious recipe! This would've been amazing when we were in the bunker

    25. igov the butcher

      corn is gross imo

    26. Eline Brouwer

      using some sauteed leeks, mushrooms and/or boiled beans makes a good creamy base for soup too but with much more fiber and less gluten

    27. Paul Wagner

      How can you have elote soup without Parkay, mayo, grated cheese, and Tajin?

    28. Obichukwu Nwosu

      thank you blue wednesday

    29. Miguel Angel Vega

      Dude you should make French onion soup

    30. Rey Barrera

      A honey balsamic reduction is perfect for tomato soup.

    31. Emanuel lXl

      3:52 me all the time

    32. Dachande Wuffsteiger

      I made the Elote soup. It's amazing! Thanks for that recipe. My ONLY regret is that i only got 2 bowls from it. Next time i'm making a POT of this soup.

    33. Frank

      I know I am in the minority but I like adding a splash of milk to my tomato soup

    34. saltino davito

      i love these videos but i can't be the only one that cringes every time he opens a fucking CAN of tomatoes!

    35. Dolphinboi

      Slender boups

    36. Cloax

      This is fucking garbage.... He goes way to fast... He is not no chef john. Unsubscribed. You're trash bud.

    37. Hannah Olivia

      Made the corn soup. Added some chopped red potatoes. Added a couple to the “broth” as well. Most delicious thing ever! Try the corn soup guys 🤤

    38. 6render

      I need to get on this palm sugar grind

    39. HPS-47

      every time this video pops up in my feed im like Binging with Babish Bender Soups oh my gosh they finally made a futurama episode!!!! XD

    40. Jihad Toom

      Babish eats crusts like a squirrel eats nuts.

    41. TheFloodDude

      “Grilled cheese croutons” Wow

    42. water . guns

      Why does his sick voice turn me on I’m fucking drooling

    43. CM FourZeroNine

      Pro-Tip on the tomato soup: instead of using a cup of water, pour the water into the can of the tomatoes that you were using. That way the water even adds more tomato flavour to the soup! Great vid as always man

    44. Nyan Cat

      You sound like Bonzi Buddy with a deep voice

    45. riice cakes

      Tale of Despereaux soup!!!

    46. Darudestorm


    47. B Tek

    48. bansheebackwards

      This video made me feel guilty, like I did something wrong, even though I didn't do anything at all. ... could be 'cuz I'm drunk and it sounds like Babish is disappointed in me....but I have no idea why.

    49. Solem

      Do shit from the interview

    50. C.J. O'Dell

      3:51. You can't hide the truth. We know you ate the crusts.

    51. Nyan Cat

      But what if I use sea salt?

    52. YukiSkullDoll


    53. Ozzie Rivero

      Hahaha ate the hell outta that crust 🤣🤣

    54. Amber Jafferian

      Help I’m hungry

    55. Gabe Guralski

      I love the music in this

    56. churblieballoon

      i appreciate the dairy free suggestions bc i have vegetarian/vegan friends i do like to cook for sometimes, even though i'll use the dairy version for myself hueuehuehueh

    57. Naveen Soppa

      1:13 "Once all of our corn is sufficiently corned..."

      1. Nyan Cat

        Is this CornHub or what?

    58. Taylor Horne

      Thanks for the non-dairy tips!

    59. Megan Behrmann

      How many servings does this make? Looks like 2...?

    60. Uber ShutterBug

      Babbie, mate, killer tomatoe soup. I just made it myself and its delicious!

    61. Mike N.

      Ima make this tonight for my daughter. If it’s garbage I will come back and let you know 👌🏻

      1. Mike N.

    64. Fateme K.

    65. Ping guo

      “ now on to the most important part of tomato soup, the grilled cheese”

    66. Ju5mike90

    67. NochSoEinKaddiFan

      Great ideas, be well soon!

    68. Dunny26

      1:14 Once your corn is sufficiently 'corn'ed?
