6 Ingredient Tomato Soup

I've been trying to cook a lot more lately, and in doing so have been finding some great recipes on Pinterest. We typically quite a bit, but in the past few months with everything going on we've been slacking. I found this easy Tomato Soup recipe made from wonderful fresh ingredients so I thought I'd try it out. I wasn't holding my breath since it was super easy and seemed almost too good to be true, but I have to say I was impressed! Originally recipe found here.


Ingredients:
1/2 of a small onion, peeled with ends chopped off
1-2 celery stalks, leaves attached if possible
1 large carrot
1 clove of garlic, peeled
1 (28oz) can diced tomatoes, with juice
1 (14.5oz) can diced tomatoes, with Italian seasoning

If you can your own tomatoes, feel free to use those instead and add the Italian spices.

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend on medium for a few minutes. If you like a creamier soup, add some milk. For those of you with a Vitamix, blend for 6 minutes (or until steam appears) and serve. If you do not have a Vitamix, blend until soup-like consistency and then heat on the stove top. And that's it! You're done. An incredibly simple soup in less than 10 minutes (prep & blending combined). 


The thing I really liked about this soup is the flavor. The soup itself is a little thicker than most store bought canned soups, but the flavor is unbeatable.
