Quick and Easy Tomato Basil Soup

Quick and Easy Tomato Basil Soup

I like to think of this Tomato Basil Soup as a healthy “fast food” option.  It comes together quickly without sacrificing any flavor, while nourishing my family with nutrient dense ingredients.

Any meal that comes together in less than thirty minutes deserves a regular spot in the dinner rotation, right?

Homegrown ingredients–like home canned tomato sauce, onions, garlic, basil, and bone broth–really make this Tomato Basil Soup sing.   No homegrown ingredients?  Not to worry; this soup also tastes great with ingredients from the grocery store.

Of course, grilled cheese sandwiches make a fantastic addition to Tomato Basil Soup.  We make ours with raw cheddar on locally baked, gluten-free bread.  For grain-free quesadillas, try tortillas made from coconut, almond flour, or cassava.

If you need to avoid dairy and grains, I recommend these Onion Nut Crackers.

    Have you used your essential oils to season this soup. Basil and black pepper oils are a quick and easy substitute for the herb and seasoning. But be careful with the basil because it can easily become too much!

      I love my homegrown basil in this recipe, but oils are a good idea if you’re out of the herb. 🙂
