  • Summary

    This recipe for tomato soup is practically as quick to make as canned, but infinitely better tasting. The flavor of the fresh tomatoes and basil really shine through and the splash of cream added at the end of cooking lends just the right amount of richness. Serve as a first course, or alongside a sandwich (we like grilled cheese) for a light dinner.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 3 cups diced tomatoes, undrained
    • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • Pinch crushed red pepper
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 cup loosely packed basil leaves, roughly chopped
    • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
