Here is yet another recipe that is quick and easy to prepare during these beautiful summer evenings. It is a cream of tomato basil soup that requires very few ingredients and very little preparation. This is a recipe that you’ll want to keep handy for the month of August, when all your tomatoes from your garden or local farmer are plentiful, ripe and ready to become part of a delicious meal. You can also make use of a simple herb garden for fresh basil. Any herbs picked fresh from the garden makes a world of a difference for any recipe. If basil is not currently part of your herb collection, I highly recommend you plant some, as I would consider this to be a staple for many dishes, and it’s very easy to grow at home. Otherwise, basil usually becomes really cheap in farmer’s markets when it’s abundantly available.
Fresh and local tomatoes are not only delicious, but they are also a great source of vitamin C and lycopene, two powerful antioxidants. Tomatoes being in the nightshade family though, some people with digestive issues might do better without them altogether.
Even if it doesn’t look like it at first glance, this soup is very rich and filling because it calls for a good amount of healthy and flavorful saturated fat from either coconut oil, butter or clarified butter.
This is best served with a nice mixed green salad with a simple vinaigrette. Enjoy!
