Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

This silky soup gets its creamy texture from canned beans, not cream, and it can be ready in under 30 minutes. Yum.



1 tsp olive oil

1 onion chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

1 cup chicken stock

1 28 oz can diced tomatoes

1 15 oz can small white beans

2 Tablespoons basil pesto

Salt & pepper to taste


Heat the olive oil in a saucepan

Add chopped onions and cook until soft

Add garlic and cook for 1 minute

Add canned tomatoes, stock, and drained canned beans

Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes

Add basil pesto, then salt & pepper to taste

Carefully blend the soup using an immersion or traditional blender

Feel free to add shredded chicken or pork to this soup for a very satisfying dinner.

If you don't have basil pesto, feel free to add 1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves. Just as delicious.
