About the Recipe
1 quart stewed tomatoes OR 6 fresh tomatoes
½ cup to 1 cup heavy whipping cream OR whole milk (but only if you hate yourself)
¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper (to taste)
¼ - ½ teaspoon granulated garlic (to taste, NOT optional)
¼ teaspoon basil (to taste, optional)
If you are using a quart of stewed tomatoes, pour into a saucepan and blend until smooth (I find that having some texture is pleasant). Skip to #4.
If you are using fresh tomatoes, cut them up and place them in the saucepan.
Add just enough water so that the tomatoes don’t burn (a couple of tablespoons). Cover and steam until cooked. Blend until smooth.
Add your cream, salt and pepper, garlic, and basil.
Heat up on a medium heat and serve warm.
This soup is so easy and satisfying, it is hard not to want to eat it every day! Goes really well with a crispy, perfectly melted cheese, grilled cheese sandwich. The epitome of comfort food.
