*Mutti is Italy's #1 canned tomato and all Mutti tomatoes are grown in Italy from the best producers/farmers. Their tomatoes are canned fresh and boast a rich color, flavor, and aroma.
**1 teaspoon offers a swift kick of heat, so I recommend starting with 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon and working your way up from there.
***If you don't have an immersion blender, use a regular blender to carefully purée the soup in batches. Then, return the soup to the pot.
****For an ultra rich and creamy variation, double the cashew cream (i.e., 1/2 cup raw cashews and 1 cup filtered water). Just be sure to adjust the seasoning by adding more sea salt and black pepper to balance out the sweetness of the cashews.
