How to Make Tomato Basil Soup
- Heat olive oil in a 3 quart saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until onion is translucent, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional minute.
- Add tomato soup, canned tomatoes, buttermilk, chopped basil, and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring often, until heated through, about 8 minutes.
- While heating use an immersion blender to puree soup.
- Serve garnished with fresh shredded basil. This goes good with crusty garlic bread.
