Fresh Tomato Soup

Fresh Tomato Soup

Still trying to use up all the yummy tomatoes from my garden.  This recipe is great comfort food and was so warming on Sunday night for dinner.  It would be great with a grilled cheese sandwich.  The recipe comes from “Raising Generation Nourished”.

1/4 cup olive oil

2 medium onions, chopped

2 large carrots, chopped

3 – 4 garlic cloves, chopped or pressed

1 quart chicken broth (or vegetable broth for vegan)

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2 tablespoons basil

about 2 cups chopped tomatoes, cored and seeded

salt and pepper

2 teaspoons honey (omit for vegan)

1  Saute onions and carrots in olive oil and a little salt for about 10 minutes.

2  Add garlic and tomato paste and cook for 1 minute.

3  Add tomatoes, basil and chicken broth and bring to a boil.

4  Reduce heat and simmer for about 25 minutes.

5  Remove soup from heat and add honey.

6  Puree in blender.
