Recipe Ingredients for Fire roasted tomato basil soup

42 ounce Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes
6 garlic cloves (chopped)
1 yellow onion (diced)
2 cups low sodium chicken stock (or vegetable stock for vegetarian)
1/2 cup fat free half and half
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
2 ounces olive oil
20 fresh basil leaves, rolled and cut into a chiffonade

Recipe Directions for Fire roasted tomato basil soup

  1. In a heavy pot on medium high heat, pour in the olive oil and saute onion until translucent. Add the chopped garlic (except for 1 clove) and heat with the onion for about four minutes. Next, add the cans of fire roasted tomatoes including the juice to the pan and cover for about 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes.

  2. With the lid off the pan, add the chicken broth and half & half and bring the pot to a simmer. The mixture should start to thicken as it reduces. This should take about 10 minutes. You want the soup to be somewhat thick. If your soup is a bit thin, let it simmer a bit longer while occasionally stirring. When it comes to the right consistency, add the remaining chopped garlic clove and fresh basil (reserve some for a garnish) and season to taste with salt and pepper. Lower your heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes more.

  3. Now it's time to get out your blender. With a ladel, place the soup mixture in the blender and puree until smooth. You can do this in batches as well. Please use caution when handling the mixture and blender as it could burn your hand as you press down on the lid. Or just use your immersion blender. Blend mixture until all the big chunks are gone, but do not blend until it is very smooth like a bisque.

  4. Serve with a small sprinkle of the reserved basil as a garnish.
