Directions See How It's Made
- Saute the onion, carrots, celery, and green apple in olive oil in a large pot over medium heat until onions translucent and carrots tender. Season with salt and pepper.
- Add tomatoes, beans, sherry, chicken broth, and water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Taste for flavor and add more salt or sherry if desired.
- Using a hand blender, puree soup until smooth.
- Taste for seasoning and adjust thickness by adding water if desired. (Can also use stand blender but make sure to cool soup first so it does not explode in blender.).
