Tomato Soup And Bread Bowls September 27, 2011 Recipes 3 Comments 1772 Does it really get any better? Today’s post is a quickie, sorry for that…but I hope you’ll forgive me when I give you this recipe. Tomato Basil Soup 4 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped or 4 cups canned whole tomatoes (or a mixture) 4 cups tomato juice (or part vegetable or part chicken stock) 12 -14 basil leaves, fresh 1 cup half and half (I’ve used fat free before) 4 tbs butter or part light butter substitute (optional) salt black pepper Combine tomatoes and juice (or stock) in a pot and simmer for 30 minutes. Add basil and puree with an immersion blender (or use a regular blender or food processor). Stir in half and half and butter, and season with salt and pepper to taste. I served these in Cheddar bread bowls from Artisan Bread, I highly recommend this book!! 3 Responses heather September 27, 2011 Yum!! Looks like total comfort food!
