Tomato Basil Soup

One of my favorite soups as a kid was Campbell’s tomato soup. My mother was obsessed with making curry and this soup she allowed us to eat regularly. Tomato soup has always been a healthy comfort food and perhaps why Andy Warhol used it as one of his subject. My recipe is very quick and easy to make and definitely hits the spot.
Cooking Time 20 minutes
1 Tblsp (15 ml) olive oil
1/3 bulb minced garlic
1 small onion diced
1 tsp (5 ml) Himalaya salt
1 798ml can organic diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp (2 ml) dried basil
1 cup (250 ml) boiling water
1 Tblsp (15 ml) balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp (1 ml) ground pepper
25 grams fresh chopped basil
sprinkle with grated parmesean(optional)
1. Heat a medium pot on medium heat and add the oil and garlic. When brown, add the onions. When they turn brown and soften add the salt.
2. Add the can of tomatoes and bring to a boil. Now add the basil, pepper, balsamic vinegar and water. Bring to a boil.
3. Puree the soup in a vitamix or blender. Serve with freshly grated parmesean.
