Servings 6 servings
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large onion finely minced
- 4 cloves garlic finely minced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup white wine optional, leave it out if desired.
- 500 grams Tomato Passata approximately 17 ounces canned tomato puree
- 5 cups chicken or beef stock use vegetable stock to make this soup vegan or vegetarian
- 2/3 cup half and half cream substitute heavy cream for more richness, whole milk for a lower fat version, OR dairy-free milk, or one 14-ounce can of coconut milk to make it vegan
Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil.
Add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions are soft and the garlic is fragrant.
Add the basil, salt and pepper.
Add the wine (if using) and let the wine reduce almost completely.
Add the Tomato Passata and stir well to combine. Continue cooking the mixture over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes or until the tomato darkens in colour slightly (this will help remove some of the sharpness and intense acidity from the tomato flavour).
Add the chicken or beef stock (I like to use beef stock in this recipe for richness, but chicken or vegetable stock work well too) and stir to combine.
Cook well over medium-low heat for about 15-20 minutes.
Reduce the heat to low and add the cream. Stir to combine, and then puree with a hand blender (or in your blender) until creamy and smooth, and serve.
