Andersen's Tuscan Tomato Soup

This is a recipe that can be found at "La Jolla Groves" restaurant in Prove, UT. An up and coming restaurant that celebrated it's one year anniversary in July. I have never been but it seems to me like a hit soup you would find at a hip sandwich, soup, and salad restaurant like Zupas. Of all places, mom pulled this recipe out of a Zion's Bank magazine. I totally loved it!

Makes 1 gallon

3 TBsp Olive Oil
2 large onions, small dice
5 cups diced and seeded tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup basil pesto
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat oil in a medium-large soup pot. Add onions and cook over moderately low heat until completely translucent. Add tomatoes and allow to warm to a simmer. Add chicken stock. Bring to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes to allow for interchange of flavors. Add whipping cream. Add pesto. Blend to desired consistency in a food processor or blender. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.


  1. you can tell its soup season in your neck of the woods! Thanks for all the new soup recipes to try. Greg LOVES pesto, so I might need to whip this one up. Looks really easy!

  2. for a while my notifications weren't working, looks like i missed this recipe! Yum!
