Description

This fiery red tomato artichoke soup is bursting with tangy flavor and the perfect thing for a gray day! Serve with garlic croutons and shaved Parmesan.


Ingredients

Scale

For the soup

  • 1 large onion (1 ½ cups chopped)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 15-ounce can artichokes
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 23-ounce jars Muir Glen diced fire-roasted tomatoes or 2 28-ounce cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pecorino Romano cheese (for garnish)

For the garlic croutons

  • 2 cups bread, cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Chop the onion and mince the garlic. Drain and roughly chop the artichokes.
  2. In a large soup pot, heat the butter. Sauté the onions, garlic, and bay leaves until the onions are translucent, 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. To the pot, add the artichokes, canned tomatoes,water, oregano, basil, Parmesan cheese, and kosher salt. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the bay leaves. Using an immersion blender (or transfer to a standard blender), blend the soup to a smooth consistency. Taste and add additional kosher salt if necessary. Garnish with croutons and shaved Pecorino Romano cheese and serve. (Tip: The soup becomes thicker after refrigeration, so if reheating you may need to stir in a bit of water or milk to achieve the correct consistency.)
  5. To make the garlic croutons: Preheat the oven to 300°F. Cut the bread into small cubes and place in a small bowl. Mix with the olive oil, kosher salt and garlic powder. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and top with the bread cubes. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes, then let cool for a few minutes before serving. (Croutons can be made in advance and stored in a sealed container until ready to use.)
