Spicy Tomato Soup
Wow. Talk about the perfect bowl of soup for a cold day. This spicy tomato soup is just fantastic. Super tomato flavor, with a hint of basil, and a really, really nice spicy kick.
Heat oil in large saucepan.
Add the onion and pepper flakes and cook until translucent, about 10 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and their juices along with the water.
Stir and bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 30 minutes.
Add the basil and salt and pepper to taste.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. Alternatively, use a stick blender to blend the soup.
Pour blended soup through a sieve to remove any solids. Push liquid through as best you can, but remove any large chunks in the liquid.
Return liquid to the saucepan and warm through.
Serve garnished with Crème fraîche if desired.
