Creamy Mediterranean Soup Recipe
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 10 servings
Serving Size: 3/4 cup
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1- 15 ounce can organic crushed tomatoes with basil
6 cups low sodium beef or vegetable broth
1/2 cup prepared pesto
1-10 ounce container of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Optional garnish: fresh basil
Heat oil in a heavy stockpot over medium high heat. Add onion and saute for about 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Add garlic and saute for another 30 seconds.
Add crushed tomatoes, broth, pesto, and Hummus to the stock pot, and stir well to combine. Bring soup to a boil, and then reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer for 15 minutes.
Puree soup with an immersion blender, or in a regular blender (be careful to leave the lid cover open to let the steam escape).
Spoon into bowls or cups, and if desired, garnish with fresh basil.
Be sure to pure in small batches and crack the blender lid slightly (or remove the center cap from the lid). Steam can build up once you start blending, and if the lid is on tight or the blender is overfilled, it will spray hot soup all over you and your kitchen. For protection, cover the top with a dishtowel while pureing.
