  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and chopped (about 1 cup)

Instructions

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, sauté the onion and carrots in the olive oil until tender, about 5 minutes
  2. Add the beans, tomato purée, broth, rosemary, and red pepper flakes
  3. Bring the soup to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 30 minutes.Puree the soup with an immersion blender or in a regular blender
  4. I use an immersion blender which makes quick work of this task and minimizes cleanup
  5. Add the sugar, salt, and pepper
  6. (I add 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper; you may adjust depending on what type of broth you use and personal preference.) Simmer for a few minutes more.Garnish with grilled cheese croutons and fresh basil, if desired.
