  4. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook for an additional 15 minutes.
  5. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth.
  6. Return the soup to low heat, stir in heavy cream, and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Serve hot, garnished with a fresh basil leaf and a drizzle of olive oil.
