Sun Ripened Tomato Soup

November 19, 2016


There is nothing as good as fresh tomato soup.  Very easy to make and so delicious.


All you will need is:

1 stock pot or dutch oven

1 food processor or blender 

2 onions, chopped

4 cloves of garlic, chopped

3 lbs. of tomatoes, washed and quartered (be sure they are nice and ripe)

fresh basil (the amount you need will depend on personal taste)

salt and pepper

T olive oil or oil of your choice


Begin by heating the oil in the pot over medium heat. Then add the onions, put the lid on and allow them to sweat but not brown) Once they are tender, remove the lid and add the garlic, saute for 1 minute. Then add the tomatoes and any of their juices  Add about 1 t of salt, give it a good stir and then put the lid on and allow the tomatoes to cook and to release all of their juices. This should take about 30 minutes. Remove the lid, turn off the heat and add some chopped fresh basil.  


Allow this to cool then puree in the blender or food processor.  You may need to do this in batches.  Check for seasonings. At this time you may need to add some salt and pepper.  Reheat on the stove and serve. You may want to offer some more fresh basil, Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes.  This is lovely served with crusty bread and a simply dressed salad.
