This is an easy easy recipes to make a fresh, warm soup for a cool night. The flavor is rich and deep.
1 large can, roasted and crushed tomatoes
4 cups organic low-sodium chicken stock
1 regular size can tomato sauce
1/2 medium onion, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 tsp whole peppercorns
6 leaves fresh basil
1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
Heat the oil over medium heat in a large saucepan or other heavy bottom pan. Saute the garlic, peppercorns and onion for 5 minutes. Add the canned goods and stock. Bring this to a simmer for 15 minutes. Add the basil and cheese. Blend with an immersion/stick blender until smooth and salt as desired. I serve mine with fresh grilled cheese or panini sandwiches. Also great with a little salad. Enjoy!
