Tomato Soup

Tastes nothing like Campbell's, which is great because after tasting this you'll never want another can of that stuff again!


  • 8-10 roma tomatoes, or whatever amount of tomatoes you can get for cheap, chopped
  • 1/2 sweet onion, roughly chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 handful fresh basil, chopped OR 1/2 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 or 2 boxes broth (or make your own bone broth)
  • salt + pepper, 1 teaspoon each
  • olive oil
  1. In your stockpot, get 2 tablespoons olive oil hot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, salt, and pepper Saute until onion begins to become translucent.
  2. Add tomato and basil, saute for another 5 minutes.
  3. Cover with broth. Bring to a boil, cover, then simmer on low heat for 1 hour.
  4. Put a colander over a big bowl and pour soup into it, then puree the solid parts.
  5. Add puree and leftover broth together and stir until combined.
  6. Can and freeze.
