Description

This simple tomato basil soup for one takes just ten minutes to make and has six simple ingredients. It’s a great easy lunch or light dinner.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 (14.5-oz) can fire roasted diced tomatoes (see note)
  • 1/3 cup chicken stock
  • 2 large basil leaves, chopped
  • Salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook them in the garlic for a minute, or until fragrant. Add the tomatoes, salt, and stock. Simmer the soup for five minutes.
  2. Puree the soup using an immersion blender or transfer it to a stand blender. Add the basil, stir, season with salt to taste, and serve.

Notes

The type of canned tomatoes you use makes a big difference in this recipe. I like to use the brand Muir Glen because the tomatoes are sweeter and less acidic.
