Tomato Basil Soup

Posted by Hilary on January 4, 2009

This is a simple recipe, with few ingredients, but is very tasty.

Step 1:

Cut up (into large chunks) and seed 4 tomatoes. You can peel them if you’re ambitious, but it’s not necessary. Put them in a pot with 4 cups of tomato juice and simmer for 30 minutes.

Step 2:

Use a blender, hand blender, or food processor to blend the mixture with fresh basil (14 leaves or in Hilary math, a whole package).

Step 3:

Return to stove top on low heat, add a cup of heavy whipping cream. You can also add a bit of butter, but I tend to leave this part out. Whatever you do, don’t let this boil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Eat on its own, or if you’re in the mood for some cheese, do the following:

Take some baguette bread and make “grilled cheese” with fresh mozzarella and basil leaves. Dip.

This has been a short and lazy post. KK, it really is your turn now.
