Recipe Ingredients for Tomato Basil Orange Soup, Creamless

56 oz canned whole tomatoes
1 medium onion
3 cloves garlic
1 tbsp basil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 cup chicken stock
3 slice bread
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp orange juice

Recipe Directions for Tomato Basil Orange Soup, Creamless

  1. Place canned whole tomatoes (two 28-oz cans) on baking sheet, sprinkle with brown sugar, roast at 375F for 45 minutes. Save the canning juice.

  2. Roughly dice bread, after removing crust.

  3. Heat oil in large pot on medium heat.

  4. Rough chop onions and garlic, cook in oil until soft. Add a bit of stock as needed to avoid burning.

  5. Add reserved canning juice, basil, red pepper, bread, and salt. Reduce heat to low, add 1 cup stock, and simmer.

  6. Add roasted tomatoes and any juice released during roasting. Roughly mash tomatoes, simmer for 20 minutes.

  7. Transfer to blender and puree to smooth. Add remaining stock as needed to achieve desired consistency.

  8. Squeeze orange and add juice slowly, stirring and tasting as you go. The juice adds a bright, sweet, tart flavour, which you can make subtle or bold.

  9. Serve with garnish of bread cubes, chopped chives, and/or orange peel/zest.

  10. Notes:

  11. Basil may be fresh or dried. A tangerine may be substituted for the orange, as can commercial orange juice. Vegetable stock may be used.
