Quick Tomato Soup

Hey guys, 

So, school sucks, but at least I can make tomato soup as a way to not do homework. For example, the tomato soup I made today was delicious, and took like 15 minutes, which is how I like to cook! Laura, my housemate, gave it a thumbs up, so I got a second opinion… 🙂

Tomato Basil Soup 

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

1 onion, chopped

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon sea salt

2 cups chicken or vegetable stock

1 14.5 ounce can chopped tomatoes

1 tablespoon honey

¼ cup sour cream

¼ cup finely chopped fresh basil

Freshly ground black pepper

Heat oil and butter in a 4-quart pot over medium heat.  Add onion, garlic

and salt and sauté until onions are soft and translucent.  Add stock,

tomatoes and honey and simmer for about 10-15 minutes to marry flavors.

Let soup cool slightly and put ½ of it into blender with sour cream.  Blend

until smooth.  Transfer to another pot.  Blend the other half of the soup

and add.  Warm blended soup.  Add basil and pepper before serving.

The only difference between this and mine, was that I did not blend both parts, I only blended half the soup, so that it was chunkier. Also, parmesan cheese is awesome with it as well as a grilled cheese.
