Tomato Basil Soup
Homemade tomato soup is so light and creamy. Top it off, this dish is super easy to make, healthy and packed full of bright flavors.
Servings 8 servings
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 large carrots chopped
- 1 large onion chopped
- 28 oz canned Italian style tomatoes
- 1 qt chicken broth
- 1 cup fresh basil
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 tbsp salt adjust to taste
- 1 tsp pepper adjust to taste
In a saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the carrots, onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 10 to 12 minutes.
Add the canned tomatoes, including the puree. Add the broth, and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes to blend the flavors.
Add fresh basil and cream, and cook on medium heat until the ingredients are heated through.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Blend the soup and enjoy!
