Quick and Easy Tomato Soup

Soups are awesome- fun and easy to make, wonderful to share and delicious to eat! I have simmered and cooked so many pots of soup in our kitchen and yet have never made homemade tomato soup until today. Madeleine is home from college and adores tomato soup, so in her honor I made my first batch. This warm and comforting soup was ready in under an hour and tasted perfect along side a crusty grilled cheese sandwich on a cold winter night.

Quick and Easy Tomato Soup

1 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove
4 cups chicken stock
28 ounce can San Marzano crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
fresh basil for garnish

Melt olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add chopped onion and 1/2 teaspoon salt; saute for 8 minutes until soft. Add garlic and saute 2 more minutes. Add chicken stock and crushed tomatoes, bring to a boil. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Enjoy garnished with fresh basil alongside a grilled cheese sandwich on fresh sourdough bread with grated Gruyere cheese.
