Easy homemade tomato soup

I grew up on canned tomato soup, and never was a big fan, so I didn’t have any interest in making my own. That was a mistake. I’ve discovered it’s simple to make and tastes way better then what I had as a kid. Here is a recipe to try.

Homemade Tomato Soup

Serves 4

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 celery stick, diced small
1 carrot, diced small
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon sugar
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Heat oil and butter in a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat. 
Add onion and sauté until soft, about 4 minutes. Add celery, and carrot and garlic. Continue to sauté another 3-4 minutes until veggies start to soften. 
Add tomatoes, tomato paste, chicken stock, sugar and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Discard bay leaf. 
Keep in saucepan and puree using an immersion blender or let cool briefly then puree in 2 or 3 batches in a blender. Return soup to pot, season to taste with salt and pepper. Reheat if necessary.
