I've been on kind of a sun dried tomato kick recently, and using them in soup form seemed like a logical next step. The sun dried version is an excellent alternative - the flavor you get is rich, deep, and tangy. —Vicky | Things I Made Today
What You'll Need
large yellow onion, chopped
garlic cloves, chopped
pinch of red pepper flakes
sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, oil drained
half and half
salt and pepper to taste
basil, chopped, as garnish
In a medium sized pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until translucent. Stir in white wine and deglaze pot, letting liquid cook down by half, about 5 minutes.
Add vegetable broth, red pepper flakes, marjoram, and sun dried tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat.
Using an immersion blender or a food processor, puree soup until smooth.
Return to low heat and stir in half and half. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. Stir in maple syrup, salt, and pepper to taste. Top with basil as garnish.
