Ingredients

** MELT:

3 Tb. butter

**ADD:

1 onion, chopped

2 carrots, peeled and chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. dried thyme (optional)

1 tsp. dried basil (or 1 TB. chopped fresh in season)

salt and pepper to taste

4 c. chopped tomatoes ( or 3 14-oz cans)

4 c. chicken or vegetable stock

Directions

1. Melt the butter in a 4-qt saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and carrots and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and cook another minute.

2. Add all the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.

3. Blend with an immersion blender (or in batches in a blender) until smooth.

4. When serving, garnish with sliced green onions, parsley, or fresh basil.

Notes

Using the thyme and basil gives it a pizza-like flavor, leave out if you’d prefer or replace with oregano.

Serve with grilled cheese
