Soups and Stews   -   Herbed Tomato Basil   by Rusty Nejdl

Description This is a spicier variety of tomato basil soup that uses fresh onions, tomotos, and garlic for the bulk of its flavor.
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups chopped, peeled tomatoes or one 14 1/2-ounce can whole, peeled tomoatos, cut up
  • 1 14oz can chicken broth
  • 1 8oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper (you can substitute black pepper)
  • 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, depending on taste
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
Directions Cut up tomato, onion, and celery. Mince the garlic clove(s). Place all into a pan with the sugar and butter. Saute for about 8 to 10 minutes. Add tomoates and cook another 8 to 10 minutes.

Add chicken broth, tomato sauce, basil, thyme, and pepper. Bring to boil and leave there at least 15 minutes.

You can then leave this as a chunky recipe and serve as is, or, you can let this cool and blend slightly. If you blend it, then return it to the sauce pan for another 5 minutes or so.
