Instructions
  1. Heat your soup pot on medium. Roughly chop the yellow onion and garlic.
  2. Add butter and olive oil to the soup pot. Then add the chopped onion. Stir the onion around to get it fully coated with the olive oil and butter. Add the salt and pepper and continue to saute until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic for just a few moments before turning off your heat. You want the onion fully cooked, and the garlic just warm enough to help release the flavor. If you cook the garlic too long, it could burn and turn bitter.
  3. Transfer your onion and garlic to the blender. Add a full bundle of washed basil leaves and your can of tomatoes. Add just a cup or so of your broth as well so that the basil and tomatoes will move easily while blending. Blend until the mixture is very smooth.
  4. Pour the contents of the blender into the soup pot, then add the remainder of the chicken stock. Stir in the stock so that it thins down the soup.
  5. Bring the soup to a simmer and let cook for 20 minutes. Add the cream towards the end and bring the soup back to a simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Serve on its own or with a grilled cheese sandwich.
