Ingredients
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 medium cloves of garlic minced
  • 28 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes in their juices, preferably San Marzanos
  • 1-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth (See Tip 1)
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is completely soft but not browned, about 15 minutes.
  2. Increase heat to medium. Add the garlic; cook stirring constantly until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the tomatoes and their juices, along with the chicken broth to the saucepan. Roughly crush the tomatoes with the back of a wooden spoon. Bring to a boil; lower heat to medium low. Cover the pan; cook for about 30 minutes until the tomatoes begin to fall apart.
  4. Remove the soup from the heat; uncover and cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Purée in several batches in blender.
  5. Return the soup to the saucepan. Heat over medium low heat. Add the cream; stir to combine. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  6. Serve, topped with garnishes of your choice.
  7. Yield: 4 servings.
