Cream of Tomato Soup

Yield: 6-8 servings

When I was a kid, we almost always had cream of tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches. This is my healthy version of that popular canned soup.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Sauté the onion in a large saucepan over medium heat until the onion turns translucent and starts to brown, about 8 minutes. Add water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time to keep the onion from sticking. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  2. Add the vegetable broth, diced tomatoes, cauliflower, and dates (if using); cover; and cook for 15 minutes. Add the basil, season with sea salt and black pepper to taste, and cook for another 5 minutes to marry the flavors.
  3. Purée the soup in batches in a blender or use an immersion blender to puree the soup right in the pot. Taste and adjust for salt and serve.

Tips

  • When puréeing hot liquids in a countertop blender, remove the center of the blender lid and hold a dish towel firmly over the hole to catch the released steam. Start the blender on low and slowly increase the speed.
