TIS. THE. SOUP. SZN. Growing up, Tomato Basil soup was my favorite thing to order, and as an adult – it still is! There is just something about a homemade soup that instantly comforts. This recipe is not only easy, but it’s incredibly delish. I used all organic ingredients, including the chicken broth from @pacificfoods. As you’ve seen, my pantry is quite literally stocked with their organic Chicken, beef, and veggie broths. When it comes to store ought, they’re my go to choice. By the way, if you want to make this recipe completely veggie friendly, use their Vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, and there ya go! Recipe below – can’t wait to hear what you think!

3.5 lbs of tomatoes (I used a mix of organic heirloom and roma, but anything you have works), cut into quarters/chunks
4 cups @PacificFoods Organic Chicken or Veggie broth
1 (28 ounce) can of plum tomatoes with juice
2 onions, chopped
1 head garlic, sliced in half
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 tsp fresh oregano, chopped
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
Salt + Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Place tomatoes on a large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Wrap halved garlic in foil, drizzle with evoo and season with salt and pepper. Place both the tomatoes and garlic in the oven, and roast for 45 min.

Heat butter and 2 tbsp of evoo in a dutch oven or large pot, until butter is crackling. Add in chopped onions and garlic, and sauté for 10-ish minutes, being careful to lightly brown the onions, not burn.

Add in the roasted tomatoes + the juices/brown bits from the pan, squeeze roasted garlic, @pacificfoods chicken or vegetable broth, canned tomatoes + juice, fresh basil, thyme and oregano, and salt + pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer for another 40-45 minutes.

Using either a high-powered blender or immersion blender, blend until smooth. Season some more if needed with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with crusty bread, a drizzle of heavy cream, freshly grated Parmesan, and basil.
