30 Minute Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

30 Minute Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

Ditch the canned tomato soup of your childhood and make this classic soup from scratch. With added flavors fresh basil and oregano, you’ll never go back to store-bought soup.




  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring, until the onions have softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes, broth, and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the cream, basil, and oregano.
  4. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup directly in the pot until there are no large pieces of tomato left. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Ladle into bowls and serve, garnished with basil leaves.
