Tomato Basil Soup with V8 + a WINNER!

The weather has been chilly here lately- yes, it's March, but Atlanta gave us a long tease of Spring, so jumping back to winter temperatures just feels wrong.

I could honestly eat soups year-round, especially tomato soup with grilled cheese or panini sandwiches, but there's something about colder temperatures that makes soup taste extra good!

This recipe is so easy and packs 4 cups of V8 juice, so it sneaks in those veggies too!

Hope you enjoy!

recipe adapted from here

1 sweet onion, diced
1/2 stick butter
2- 14.5-ounce cans Hunt's diced tomatoes with sweet onion (look like this)
4 cups V8 Juice Original
2-4 tablespoons sugar 
1/2tsp salt
1/2T dried basil leaves
1/8tsp black pepper
1 cup dry sherry 
1 1/2 cups heavy cream 

Melt the butter in a large pot. Toss in the onion and cook until translucent, stirring frequently (about 7 minutes over medium-high heat).

Add in the diced tomatoes and sugar (start with 2T and add more later if needed), and stir to combine. Cook for 2 minutes. Add V8 Juice.

Add salt, basil, pepper and sherry. Simmer for a minimum of 30 minutes to a full day.

Stir in the cream. Warm and serve.

And now for the WINNER of the Sleep Baby Consulting giveaway!
