Tomato - Basil Soup


Make the best homemade tomato soup with fresh tomatoes and basil with this quick and easy recipe. Amazing dish with just a handful of ingredients.

Ingredients :

  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 large tomatoes
  • 600ml of chicken stock
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 50g of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 200ml of heavy cream
  • 1 bunch of basil, chopped
  • Parmesan cheese, for garnish

Preparation :

Rinse the tomatoes really well and keep aside. Remove the stems if there are any. In a saucepan take enough water so that the tomatoes get immersed completely. Add salt to the water and bring the water to a boil. Add the tomatoes and turn off the heat. Close the saucepan with the lid. Let the tomatoes be immersed in the hot water for 20-30 minutes. Peel and chop the tomatoes above the blender jar so that the juices drop directly inside the blender jar. Blend the tomatoes to a smooth puree.

Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large pot. Once hot, add onions and season generously with salt. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until soft and starting to turn golden brown. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute, stirring to avoid burning the garlic.

Stir in the tomato puree and chicken stock. Season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bring the soup to a boil, then lower heat to maintain a simmer for at least 15 minutes.

Stir in the cream, basil with the remaining ingredients and let simmer for at least 15 minutes.

Serve immediately topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese .
