One Pot Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Serves 4

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 6 cups tomatoes, chopped (about 3 pints grape tomatoes, halved)
  • 1 14.5 oz. can cannellini beans
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Sauté the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about another minute. Add the balsamic vinegar and chopped tomatoes. Sauté for another 5 minutes. Add the beans, vegetable broth, almond milk, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 20 minutes.

Add the basil and puree with a hand immersion blender. You could also do this in a blender.

When ready to serve, ladle the soup into four bowls and garnish with extra basil and piece of toast on the side.
