I figured I better make some tomato soup before the frost gets all my Basil. Here we have grilled cheddar tortillas with Tomato Basil Soup. Our tomatoes are gone now, but I used some of the roasted ones I stored in our freezer. This is so easy. The hardest thing is the mess you make when running the soup through the food processor. Maybe someone else would not be a messy as me.
1 chopped onion
3 cloves garlic
½ cup packed basil leaves
1 cup chicken broth
ground salt and pepper, to taste
Cream as needed
Parmesan cheese, for a tangy, flavor enhancing flavor
tablespoon or two of butter, for richer flavor
Allow to cool a bit, then run soup through food processor until smooth.
Pour back into your pot and add cream to the consistency you would like. I added about 1/2 cup.
Heat, but don’t allow to boil. Add parmesan and butter, then serve.
