    2 tablespoon olive oil
    1 sprig oregano
    1 medium red onion finely chopped

    4 cloves garlic sliced
    28 oz San Marzano tomatoes with their juice (1 can)
    1½ cup Chicken Stock
    ¾ cup heavy cream
    2 tablespoon sriracha sauce
    1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves
    Heat the olive oil in a 4-quart pot over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the onion and a three-fingered pinch of salt and sweat for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to sweat for 2 more minutes. Add the tomatoes, their juice, and the stock and bring to a simmer. Tie up a sprig of oregano and place it into the soup with the string hanging over the side of the pot.  Add the cream, sriracha sauce, and oregano and simmer for 10 to 25 minutes.

The soup will keep, covered in the refrigerator, for a few days.
