I've made this soup numerous times, and have taken the time (and effort) of using my own homegrown tomatoes. In the winter, I resort to using quality canned tomatoes and basil pesto, to make a quick and flavorful homemade tomato soup. Serve this with a grilled cheese sandwich, and you have classic comfort food!


1 large can plum tomatoes
1 quart low-sodium quality chicken stock (organic, if possible)
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp dried thyme (or fresh)
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. pesto (I make my own, and freeze it in an ice cube tray, but you can used bottled)
coarse salt & fresh cracked pepper, to taste
Optional: ¼ cup heavy cream or half and half
