Tomato Basil Soup - Seriously Soupy

Even though soup making is a relevantly quick way to cook, I am always looking for ways to streamline the chopping process without sacrificing the quality of the ingredients. I recently had a gorgeous collection of colorful heirloom tomatoes, some fresh basil and a box of Marinara Pomi Sauces, a new BPA-free sauce made with freshly crushed tomatoes, onions, garlic, parsley, oregano, olive oil, and chili where I decided to make a simple, yet delicious tomato soup. Not really having a plan for this recipe, I also added in some carrots and peppers (orange and red), light cream and a bunch of basil for a rich and comforting bowl of soup!

1 box of Marinara Pomi Sauce
1 box of heirloom tomatoes – about 20 small tomatoes
5-6 sprigs of fresh basil
1 red onion, peeled and cut up
5 cloves of garlic, minced and cut up
3-4 carrots, cut up
1 red pepper, cut up
1 orange pepper cut up
1/4 cup of light cream (optional)
pinch of red pepper flakes
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper

Directions:
Drizzle some olive oil in a medium-sized pot. Cut up the onions and garlic and add them to the pot. Cook on a low flame. Add the Pomi Sauce, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Cover and let cook for 30-40 minutes – tasting periodically. Add the cream. Puree the soup into a blender. Enjoy!

I was not paid for this post but I did receive some samples of Pomi.
