So, this recipe was a happy accident. I was originally trying to make a vegan inspired tomato basil sauce. I had no tomato paste so I asked my son to run to the store and pick some up (it is so nice having kids that can drive) and while I was waiting I started messing with the sauce. When I was done I thought to myself, hmmmm, this is pretty amazing and it reminds me an awful lot of soup. By the time Chris got home I was convinced it was an easy recipe for creamy tomato soup that is dairy free, vegan and of course gluten free. He agreed!!

I recommend using fresh ingredients (if possible) when making this, the taste is just divine, it has amazing flavor and a really creamy texture.

Ingredients
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions yellow or white, diced (about 3 cups)
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 64 oz crushed tomatoes (if using fresh, you need roughly 11 tomatoes run through a food press. There should be 8 cups of fresh tomato juice)
  • 2 tbsp basil fresh, chopped (1 tbsp dried)
  • 1 tbsp sage fresh, chopped (1 tsp dried)
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar (to reduce the acid in the tomatoes)
  • 1 red chili pepper chopped

Instructions
  1. Add the olive oil to a stock pot or dutch oven, when hot add the onions. Cook for 5 minutes until translucent.
  2. Add the minced garlic to the onions and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes, basil, sage, sugar and salt. Cook for another 10 minutes stirring well.
  4. If using fresh chili pepper, use gloves to remove membranes and seeds. Chop as fine as possible. You can use as much or as little as you like depending on your tastes. One chili pepper just adds a little flavor and a touch of heat. If using dried add directly to the pot.
  5. Working in batches, process the soup in a food processor or blender allowing the contents to vent occasionally, the contents can become very hot so work carefully.
  6. Add the blended soup back into the pot and cook on low for another 2-3 minutes to blend everything together and keep hot.
  7. Serve with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
