Last night my mom and I were hanging out and suddenly realized it was 6:00 and we hadn't even started thinking about dinner. She had a great idea for tomato soup, I found a recipe online, tweaked a few things, and voila! Dinner on the table in no time!
1 T. vegetable oil
1 c. chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced (this is a lot of garlic, because we enjoy it, but feel free to cut back here)
2 28-oz. cans diced or crushed tomatoes
4 c. chicken broth
1 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. salt
1/2 t. dried thyme
1/2 t. black pepper
3-4 drops hot sauce
1. Heat oil in a large pot, saute onion and garlic until onion is tender.
2. Add remaining ingredients, cover and simmer for 10-20 minutes, stirring frequently.
3. Use immersion blender to blend to desired consistency (optional).
