  1. Warm olive oil in a medium saucepot over medium heat. Add onion and sweat onions until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add dried spices and stir into cooked onions until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Add Quick Tomato Sauce or diced tomatoes to pot, stirring occasionally until mixture starts to bubble and color darks slightly.
  3. Add stock or water, and fresh herbs if using, and bring soup back up to slow simmer for 15-20 minutes, uncovered. Ladle a few cups into a blender and process in batches or use an immersion blender until smooth. Taste for seasoning.
  4. Serve immediately, store in an airtight container in a refrigerator for up to a week or freeze for up to two months.
