Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then onions and leftover carrots to heated oil. Saute for ~3 minutes, until onions start to soften.
  2. Add in diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, chicken stock, and oregano. Cover and bring to a boil, and then simmer uncovered for ~10 minutes.
  3. While soup is simmering, heat up a non-stick pan over medium heat for eggs. Spray with some cooking oil and pour whisked eggs and chopped turkey into pan. Scramble over heat until you get the texture you want. Remove from heat and fold in pesto.
  4. After soup has simmered, puree with an immersion / stick blender (like in this video) when it’s cool enough to work with (or transfer into a blender in batches). If using an immersion blender, I like to move the pot into the kitchen sink in case of spattering. Puree until smooth. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Cube avocado.
  6. Divide soup into bowls. Garnish with olives. Top your pesto-turkey-egg scramble with avocado and enjoy together!

It was my first dish to try with this service, haven't expected anything but it turned out so delicious! Haven't mashed avocado though to get more texture in sandwiches. And really loved the soup, it's so simple and effortless but has such a nice taste.

This was very good. I used a Parmesan rind in the soup and finished with a tiny bit of half and half. Next time I will go lighter on the oregano - just my preference. The sandwich was very good, too.

Sandwich was awesome! Soup was just ok, but I didn't put in olives, forgot to season it with salt and pepper and forgot the garnish, so didn't make it right. It was still ok though.

We've made this tomato soup several more times. I thought this was a great fall dinner.
