Kinzie’s Tomato Basil Soup

I love this recipe. Kinzie made this for us a few times (after I was on a continuous search for a recipe like this) and my whole family savored every spoonful. Enjoy!

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 Tablespoons garlic
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes with basil
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 12-15 large fresh basil leaves (or 2-4 Tablespoons dried)
  1. In a dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until translucent.

    Add garlic and saute another 30 seconds.

    Add crushed tomatoes (juice and all), chicken stock, oregano, sugar, salt, and pepper.

    Bring to a low simmer. Cook uncovered, for 15 minutes or until it has thickened.

    Add the half and half, basil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
