Eat Clean Diet: Not-So-Basic Tomato SoupSubmitted by: MARYC830
5 lbs tomatoes (usually about 8 medium)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup basil leaves
1 tsp organic honey
sea salt & black pepper to taste
juice from one lemon
2) Bring several cups of water to boil in a large sauce or soup pan. Place whole tomatoes in boiling water long enough to split and loosen the outer skin. Once the skins are loose remove the tomatoes from the boiling water and drop them in ice water. This stops the cooking process and accelerate the cooling of the tomatoes. When they are cool enough to handle, loosen the skins with your hands. Quarter the tomatoes and remove the inner core.
3) In a dutch over, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Place all the tomatoes in the pot. Add 1/2 cup of water. Bring the mixture to boil and immediately reduce heat. Add basil and allow tomatoes to simmer for 30 minutes or until they are soft. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat.
4) Place a food mill over a large bowl. Transfer the cooked tomatoes to the mill and slowly turn the handle to make a puree. A blender will also work.
5) Return the pureed soup to the saucepan and allow to simmer. Stir in honey and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
