Rottin’ Tomato Soup


Prep time: 30 minutes  Serves 6

Triple the recipe, if you want to feed a crowd.

4 medium  tomatoes (the riper, the better)

1 large yellow onion, cut into ¾ inch squares

3 cloves garlic , crushed (or to taste)

2  T butter

2 cups/500 ml vegetable broth

Large handful of basil

Salt and pepper to taste


● Saute onions in butter for 20 minutes or so, until caramelized.  Add salt while sauteeing.  Add garlic, slowly browning it, during final few minutes.

● Meanwhile, score the tomatoes. Cut four slits in peel, stick in boiling water for 2 minutes, rinse in cold water and remove skin. (You can save the skin for our puttanesca recipe, mmm, coming soon.)

● Crush the tomatoes well.  Add to onions. Add salt, if needed. Let simmer for a few minutes.

● Add broth and let simmer.

● Snip in basil, simmer 2 minutes and serve, with freshly ground pepper .
