Fresh Tomato Soup with Basil with Tomato Puree

Fresh Tomato Soup with Basil with Tomato Puree

This fresh tomato soup with basil embodies the simplicity of summer and celebrates the sweet freshness of vine-ripened tomatoes.

Made with Tomato puree

Mutti® Tomato Puree (Passata) is sun-ripened 100% Italian tomatoes transformed into sweet velvety puree with just a touch of Mediterranean sea salt. After eliminating the skin and seeds, the tomatoes are pureed to achieve a smooth, luxurious texture while maintaining their bright red color and naturally sweet flavor. Fantastic in marinara sauce, tomato soup, or even a Bloody Mary.

Fresh Tomato Soup with Basil with Tomato Puree: Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally until soft, 8 minutes. With kitchen string, tie the basil sprigs together. Add basil sprigs, Mutti® Tomato Puree (Passata), and stock to the onions. Over high heat, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until it slightly thickens, about 10 minutes.
  2. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove the basil and discard. Season with salt to taste. (The soup can be done up to one day in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve. If so, heat the soup over medium heat until hot, for 5 minutes.)
  3. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with basil strips to complete this tasty Italian tomato basil soup.
