It’s a soup kinda day….

So please ignore my picture, I made a mess of the bowl but it isn’t the bowl that counts but whats in it! AND…I just has the BEST leftover lunch perfect for a brisk day in Okc with a current temp of 26′!!! I hate it when tomato soup tastes like marinara, if I wanted spaghetti sauce then that is what I would eat! Do you feel me?? But thankfully I have found the best and easiest soup recipe ever!
You MUST try it tonight!!!!! And you can cut the recipe in 1/2, add more of this, less of that….make it your own!

Fire Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped fine

olive oil

4 cans of fire roasted tomatoes

1 large can crushed tomatoes

1 tablespoon dried basil

½ teaspoon thyme

2 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon pepper

salt to taste

2 cups heavy whipping cream

Parmesan cheese

fresh basil

In a 2 quart stockpot over medium heat, cook onion and garlic in olive oil until onion is soft. Be careful not to burn the garlic! Add in the fire roasted tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, basil, thyme, salt, pepper and brown sugar.

Using a blender or immersion blender, puree soup until smooth; return to pan if using blender. Whisk in heavy whipping cream. Heat through being very careful not to boil the soup. Boiling will cause milk to separate and make for a lumpy soup.

Serve warm and garnish with freshly grated Parmesan and fresh basil.

Serves: 6
