Homemade Tomato SoupServes: 6
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup onion, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 qt chicken broth, plus more as needed
Or 4 cups water + 4 tsp Tones chicken base paste
1 (28-oz) canned crushed tomatoes, Cento San Marzano
Or 3 1/2 cups crushed tomatoes
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp plain paprika (or smoked)
3 Tbsp long-grain white rice, Jasmine
1 to 2 tsp sugar, to taste
1/2 cup heavy cream
Fresh parsley or basil
Additional heavy cream
Gluten Free croutons
Heat the oil in a stockpot over MED heat, sauté to sweat onions and celery. Toss in a pinch of salt to coax out the liquids, stir occasionally 5-7 minutes to soften, until clear but not brown. Add garlic and stir 1 minute without browning.
With an immersion blender, blend the soup 2-3 minutes until completely smooth. Serve the soup as is, or whisk in enough optional cream to your liking. If the soup is too thick, add additional broth or hot water. Heat through and serve in warm bowls, garnished with fresh cream, a parsley sprig or chopped basil, and croutons.
