Easy Stovetop Tomato Soup

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil (or butter)
  • ½ medium onion
  • 1 small carrot
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 28 ounces (800 grams) crushed canned tomatoes
  • ½ cup loosely packed basil
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • fresh black pepper
  • optional: pesto for topping


Slice the onions into wedges or chunks. Heat the olive oil in a large pot and add the onions. Sauté for about 2 minutes. Crush, slice, or mince the garlic and add it to the pot. Chop the carrots into small pieces (about ½-inch cubes or smaller), and add to the pot. Sauté the vegetables together for about 5 minutes.
Add the canned tomatoes and about half of the basil (1/4 cup only). Simmer the soup for about 20 minutes, or until the carrots are soft. Remove from heat and add to your blender. (Or blend with an immersion stick.) Blend until smooth and return to the pot. Add the milk, the salt, and the remaining basil. Bring to a simmer and then immediately remove from heat. Serve immediately or freeze for later. Pair with crusty bread, whole wheat naan, cheddar garlic biscuits, or grilled cheese. :) Top with parmesan cheese, basil, or pesto!
