I absolutely loveeeeeeeeeee this soup. It is so tasty and delicious. And it’s been perfect on these chilly days that we have been having here in good ole Texas. It’s great by itself or enjoy with a grilled cheese sandwich. I like to use Rosemary Sour dough Bread for my sandwich. It’s nice and crunchy.
Tomato Basil Soup:
- 4 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced
- 4 cups tomato juice
- 1 bunch of fresh basil leaves, about 14 leaves
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup butter
- Salt and pepper to taste
Place tomatoes, juice and garlic in a large stock pot over medium heat. Simmer for 30 minutes. Place the soup and basil leaves in a food processor and puree. Return to the stock pot.
Stir in the cream and butter. Season with salt and pepper. Heat until all the butter is melted. Enjoy!
