Tomato Basil Soup

Yes, I really like tomato soup and yes I probably have about 20 types of tomato soup on this blog. Maybe I have a problem and I need to go to tomato soup rehab. Maybe not.

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
28 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 14 ounce can vegetable broth
10 fresh basil leaves
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Warm olive oil over medium heat in a large saucepan or stockpot. Saute garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the diced tomatoes, broth, basil leaves, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Blend in a blender until the desire consistency is achieved. Be sure to be careful of the hot soup in the blender.
  3. Serve warm and enjoy.
