Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    3 T. Olive Oil
    2 C. onions, chopped fine (anout 2 large)
    4 cloves Garlic, minced fine
    1 64 oz. bottle low sodium vegetable/tomato juice
    2 14.5 oz. cans petite diced tomatoes in juice
    3 T. Parsley, minced (or 2 T. dried crushed)
    3 T. Basil, minced (or 2 T. dried crushed)
    3 T. Chicken broth base (see instructions)
    3 T. granulated sugar
    1 C. Good Sherry or White Wine
    1 C. Light Cream
    S&P to taste

Directions

Heat oil in large pot. Add onions and saute until just tender. Add garlic and continue sauteing until onions are fully tender and garlic in gragrant. Add Tomato juice, diced tomatoes with the juice, parsley, basil, chicken soup base, and sugar. Cover, turn heat to low, and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add cream and sherry and salt and pepper to taste and return to a simmer, about 15 minutes. Serve hot with multigrain rolls or crackers.

Notes: For the nutritional count, the chicken soup base is listed as bullion. Chicken soup base, however, is more of a paste than a powder. "Better Than Bullion" is one of the bands that makes it. Additionally, this recipe could easily be made vegetarian by using the vegetable soup base instead. Similar to the soup base, the sherry in the recipe is listed as white wine for nutritional purposes, though you could certainly use white wine if you wanted to.
