Kathleen's Tomato Soup
Gourmet Soups, Stews, & Bisques
This recipe is from a dear family member, Kathleen, a mighty fine cook who once ran her own catering business and is always experimenting with new recipes in her kitchen in LA. It's a tasty twist on an old standby, and we hope you enjoy it.
2 tablespoons oil from oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes (or olive oil)
2 medium onions, diced
1/3 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 large can (28 ounces) tomato purée or crushed tomatoes
1 1/2 ounces Veggie-Stock Gold® dissolved in 4 cups hot water
Salt and ground black pepper
In a soup pot, warm the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and sun-dried tomatoes and sauté for 5 minutes, until the onions are transparent. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute.
Add the white wine, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 5 minutes.
Stir in the tomato purée and the dissolved Veggie-Stock Gold®, bring the soup to a simmer, and cook for about 45 minutes.
Purée the soup in batches in a blender, then return it to the pot, season to taste with salt and pepper, and reheat gently.
