In my meal plan this week, I had Tomato Basil Soup for Sunday’s dinner, and man was it good! Below I’ll give you my version of it. I changed a few things around to make it more affordable and tastier for me.
** This freezes well, and is great with any kind of bread, or just grilled cheese sandwiches!
Here is my version. The picture was taken right before I put the leftovers in refrigerator.
Tomato Basil Soup
1/2 to 1 onion, thinly sliced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced or 1T jarred
28 oz of crushed tomatoes, or puree diced (but leave it a little chunky for some texture)
1 cup whole milk
1 can chicken broth
2 tsp dried basil
- Sautee onions and garlic in olive oil (about 1T) until soft.
- Add crushed tomatoes and chicken broth. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
- Add basil, reduce heat to low; stir in cream and butter. Cook until butter is melted.
