Tomato Basil Soup
This creamy tomato basil soup is bursting with flavor and is the perfect comfort food on a chilly winter day. It's easy to make and only requires a few simple ingredients. Serve it with a grilled cheese sandwich for a classic, comforting meal.
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the onion is translucent.
Add the tomatoes, broth, cream, basil, sugar, oregano, salt, and pepper to the pot and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the soup has thickened slightly.
Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until it is smooth and creamy. Alternatively, you can transfer the soup to a blender and puree it in batches. Be sure to remove the center cap of the blender lid and cover the opening with a clean kitchen towel to allow steam to escape. This will help prevent the lid from blowing off due to the hot soup.
Return the soup to the pot and heat over medium heat until it is hot and bubbly. Serve hot and enjoy!
