  • 1 Tbsp butter or olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, coarsley choppped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • One 25.5 oz jar Atlas Farms Organic Tomato Puree or one 19.6 jar Kitchen Garden Farm Whole Peeled Tomatoes
  • 1/2-1 cup vegetable or chicken stock, as needed
  • Pinch hot pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 bay leaf


Heat oil or butter in small soup pot. Add onion and saute until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, small amount of stock, bay leaf, hot pepper flakes, sugar. Bring to boil allow to simmer, gently, covered, about 20 minutes.

Remove bay leaf and puree in blender or with immersion blender to retain some texture. Return to pot, heat, taste and adjust for seasoning with salt and pepper and consistency with additional stock.

To serve: place in bowls, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with basil or oregano or scallions, preferably fresh. Crumbled feta is also a nice addition.

Make it a meal with a grilled cheese sandwich on the side. Or make it substantial with the addition of two eggs. After pureeing, bring to bowl again, beat two eggs together in a measuring cup and, while swirling boiling soup with a spoon or chopsticks, slowly pour in beaten eggs. In about 30 seconds - 1 minutes you'll have egg drop soup. Remove from heat immediately. Instead of olive oil to finish it, this variation is nice with a few drops of sesame oil and scallion greens.
