Here's what you'll need:
For the tomato soup
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped white onions
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 (400-gram) can crushed tomatoes
2 1/2 cups chicken stock
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup heavy cream or milksalt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper to taste
fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)
For the cheese-basil dumplings
1/3 cup softened cream cheese
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
12 (2-inch) pieces square wonton wrappers
oil for deep-frying
1 Make the tomato soup: In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil. Sauté onions, celery, and carrots over medium heat until soft, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and mix well; cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 to 12 minutes over low heat. Add basil and mix well. Transfer soup to a blender and purée until smooth. Place soup back to a clean pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat and add cream or milk. Season with salt, cayenne, and black pepper to taste.
2 Make the cheese-basil dumplings: In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and basil. Place half a teaspoon of the mixture on the center of a wonton wrapper. Brush edges of wrapper, fold over to make a triangle, pressing edges to seal. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients. Deep-fry in batches until wontons are golden brown.
3 When ready to serve, portion tomato soup among three bowls. Top each with 4 wontons. Garnish with basil leaves, if desired.
