1 tsp olive oil

1 sweet onion, diced 

3 tsp minced garlic 

2 celery stalks, diced 

10 large ripe tomatoes, chopped 

2 medium carrots, peeled and diced 

4 cups low-sodium vegetable stock

2 tbsp chopped basil

2 tbsp chopped parsley 

1 tsp chopped oregano 

Meal Preparation:

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, sauté the diced onion, minced garlic, and diced celery in olive oil until softened, (about 5 minutes). 
  2. Add the tomatoes, carrots, and stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer the soup until the carrots are tender, (about 30 minutes). 
  3. Remove the soup from the heat and purée with a blender or in a food processor until the soup reaches the desired consistency. This soup is better chunky.
  4. Stir in the basil, parsley, and oregano; season with pepper as needed.

We recommend serving this soup with a side of hot garlic bread.
