Now that the holidays are over, I wanted to find a light soup to make. This tomato soup is simple, with not too many ingredients, and very easy to make. It’s perfect on it’s own, or paired with some grilled cheese. This recipe only makes 5 cups of soup, so feel free to double the recipe if you want more.
2 lbs Plum tomatoes, quartered
1 Yellow Onion, chopped (about 1 cup total)
1 Cup Celery, chopped
1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
2 Cups Chicken Broth
2 Teaspoons Dried Basil (You can use fresh if you have it)
Salt & Pepper, to taste
1. Place all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Then turn down the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
2. At this point, either use an immersion blender or use a traditional blender to blend until smooth.
Garnish with extra basil for more flavor.
