TOMATO BASIL SOUP



Servings: 4 Preparation Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 30 minutes


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1-2 Tablespoons Gremolata Olive Oil

  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped

  • 2-3 tomatoes, chopped (to equal approximately two cups)***

  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock

  • 1 cup reduced fat evaporated milk

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • ½ cup loosely packed fresh basil, chopped (additional basil for garnish)

  • 3-4 slices Italian bread, chopped

DIRECTIONS:

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.
