cost per recipe: $6.24

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large carrot, diced (about 1cup)
  • 1 large onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 stalk celery, diced (about 1/2 cup)

  • 6 large heirloom tomato, chopped (about 9 cups)

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Ingredient Note: Heirloom tomatoes get their name because they're grown from seed varieties that have been passed down through generations.  They typically are grown using a less commercial process than average grocery store tomatoes, resulting in better flavor.  You can substitute fresh beefsteak tomatoes if heirloom tomatoes aren't available.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the carrots, onion and celery and cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Add the garlic and cook and stir for 30 seconds.

  • Step 2

    Stir in the broth and tomatoes and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to soften.  Remove the saucepan from the heat.  Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth.  Season to taste.

  • Step 3

    Divide the mixture among 10 small bowls. Stir about 1 teaspoon pesto into each serving.
