Ingredients

  • 8-10 ripe tomatoes, (3 pounds), cut in half and seeded
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 red onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  4. Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and process until smooth; return to the saucepan. Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
