Tomato Basil Soup

Posted on May 24, 2019 at 12:25 AM
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Gremolata
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 2-3 tomatoes, chopped (to equal approximately two cups)***
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup half and half
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup loosely packed fresh basil, chopped (additional basil for garnish)
  • 3-4 slices Italian bread, chopped

Sauté the onion in the olive oil until softened, about 10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 20 minutes. Blend the mixture with an immersion blender.

Garnish with basil and a drizzle of Basil Olive Oil.

***If tomatoes are not in season, I have found that POMI tomatoes are the next best thing to a fresh tomato. These come in a carton and can be found with the canned tomatoes in your local grocery store.
