Tiny Green Mom’s Creamy Tomato and Basil Soup

Ingredients

3 – 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 yellow onions, chopped

5 – 6 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

2 organic carrots, chopped

1 stalk organic celery, chopped

2 containers Pomì Chopped Tomatoes

Handful of fresh basil (10 leaves should be plenty)

Pinch of turbinado sugar

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

1/4 tsp. ground allspice

Red pepper flakes, to taste

4 cups organic chicken broth

1 – 2 cups organic plain soymilk creamer or organic whipping cream (omit if you do not desire a creamy soup)

Preparation

Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, carrots and celery; cook until just wilted. (about 10 minutes) Add the canned tomatoes, fresh basil, juice, salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes more. Add the chicken stock, red pepper flakes and the allspice, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover partially, and let the soup simmer for 50 minutes. Once simmered, puree the soup in a blender or food processor, to desired consistency. (some prefer it chunky!) It helps to have a separate bowl to place the pureed soup into as you blend the soup. Return the soup to the soup pot, add the cream if desired, and heat through once more. Add salt and pepper, as needed.

Serve with crackers, crusty bread, or sandwiches – enjoy!
