Fresh Tomato Soup

*fresh tomato soup

Amazing soup. JUST AMAZING. If the tomatoes are not sweet on their own, add a bit of sweetness with your favorite sweetener. I used Thai Basil to flavor this soup, being a fresh soup, any fresh herbs would be superbly paired against a late summer, early fall tomato; cilantro, italian basil, rosemary, thyme, etc. Serve with some crusty bread and a large leafy green salad this makes for an exceptional simple and satisfying meal.

Summer Tomato Soup

*Supa Fresca*

3c chopped fresh tomatoes

1 one onion, medium dice

3t extra virgin olive oil

2t raw agave or maple syrup

½ fresh jalapeno or cherry bomb pepper, small dice

1/4t fresh black pepper

1/2t pink salt

3c water

2T fresh basil

1 veggie bouillon or replace the water with veggie broth

Heat up a soup pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil and the chopped onions. Sautee until they are just golden. Add the fresh jalapeno, salt and pepper and toss around in the pan for a minute or so before adding the fresh tomatoes. Cover with the water (or broth) and bring to a boil over medium heat- about 10 minutes or so. Puree and add in the fresh basil, adjust seasonings and serve. YUM!

*Caution: blending hot liquids can be extremely dangerous. Fill the blender only half way and proceed in batches if necessary.
