This recipe for thick, tasty tomato basil soup is easy, quick, and high on taste.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 28-ounce can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 2 cups vegetable broth

  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a heavy-bottomed pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat; add the onion and garlic; cook for about 10 minutes until softened; stir in the basil, chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, and vegetable broth; bring to a boil; reduce heat and then simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
