Ingredients

  • 6

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 4

    large carrots, peeled and diced

  • 1

    large onion, sliced

  • 1

    tablespoon dried basil, crushed

  • 3

    28-ounce cans whole peeled Roma tomatoes

  • 1

    quart chicken broth

  • 1

    pint heavy cream

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

1. In a large, heavy saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add carrots and onion and cook until beginning to soften, 10 minutes, then add basil and cook until vegetables are completely soft, about 5 minutes more. 2. Add tomatoes and broth, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 20-30 minutes, or up to 45 minutes if time permits. 3. After allowing soup to cool somewhat, in a blender or food processor until smooth, doing so in batches if necessary. 4. Stir in cream little by little over over low heat, until desired texture is reached and soup is just heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve warm. I did not use heavy cream and it was perfect.
