Tomato Basil Soup

This is a super easy soup that will warm you up on the chilliest of winter days.  It is perfect with a side of garlic bread  or great with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Here we go:  Diced tomato, chicken broth, cream, basil, sugar and butter.

Blitz tomatoes in blender until desired smoothness or chunkieness.

Add tomatoes and chicken broth to pan and bring to boil.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add basil.

Add sugar.

Add cream and butter.  Cook until butter is melted.  Then serve.
