Scale

Ingredients

  • 229oz cans tomato sauce
  • 1 medium-sized onion, peeled and quartered
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

Instructions

  1. In a medium stock pot, combine the tomato sauce, onion, butter and basil. Bring it to a low boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and allow to simmer for at least 45 minutes. If you have more time, you can allow the soup sauce to simmer very low for 1-2 hours as well. 
  2. Using an immersion blender, blend the tomato soup sauce until smooth and velvety. Serve immediately or allow to cool completely and store in the refrigerator for later use. 

Notes

  1. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can carefully ladle or pour the soup sauce into a standard blender or food processor to blend until smooth. 
  2. This tomato soup sauce can be served with so many things! Either dish it up as a tomato soup (we love ours with a grilled cheese and roasted veggies!). Or, sub it in place of any recipe that you would use a jarred pasta sauce.
