Spicy Tomato Basil Soup

| Last Updated: August 17, 2019 | , ,

Tomato basil with bite!

Tomato and basil are a refreshing soup combo: a garden fresh flavor that’s as tasty as it is filling. And like most tomato-based soups, it’s perfect nuanced with a little extra heat.

In this spicy tomato basil soup recipe, the popular Sriracha sauce provides both bite and a little additional garlic flavor, and crushed red pepper gives a certain jump in heat – though moderate enough still that most in the family can still enjoy. Serve it with crusty bread for a simple and flavorful lunch!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 can crushed tomatoes 28 ounce can, or 10 to 12 fresh tomatoes, peeled and crushed
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 4 carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves chopped (reserve a few for garnish, optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce or more depending on how spicy you like it
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • In a large soup pot over medium heat, heat the olive oil then add the onions and crushed red pepper. Sauté the onions until soft (3 to 4 minutes). 
  • To the pot, add the carrots, minced garlic, and Italian seasoning. Continue to cook, stirring often until the carrots soften (approximately 5 minutes). 
  • Add the dry white wine. Stir occasionally as the liquid in the pot reduces (approximately 4 to 5 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced by one third). 
  • Add the crushed tomatoes, vegetable broth, basil (keeping a leaf or two for garnish if you want), and Sriracha sauce. Stir to combine, then bring the soup to a quick boil. Once boiling lower the heat to low and simmer the soup for 20 to 25 minutes. 
  • Add salt, pepper, and additional Sriracha, or crushed red pepper to taste. Garnish with basil (optional) and serve immediately.
