Spicy Tomato Soup

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, peeled and chopped
1 small carrot, peeled and diced
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
2 (28 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup half-and-half
1 cup prepared or homemade pico de gallo

Melt the butter with the oil over low heat in a large pot. Add the onion and carrot; soften over low heat, stirring occasionally for about 8 minutes. Add the garlic during the last minute, stirring.

Add the tomatoes and their juices, the soy sauce, sugar, and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cover; cook over medium-low heat for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Purée the soup in a blender or food processor. Return to the pot and stir in the half-and-half and pico de gallo.

Warm the soup through before serving.

My favorite soup is tomato soup. Takes me back to cold, snowy winters in New York and Mom opening that can of Campbell’s condensed goo. Oh, how I loved it — yes — with grilled cheese! Can’t wait to try this amazing recipe! xo
