My neighbor Miriam has a basil plant which she had to trim, so she gave me 1/2 pound of fresh basil - yummy. I whipped up a few ingredients already in my pantry, and came up with this creamy rich flavorful soup. It has a warm follow through perfect for the winter months. What fun to get such a basil bonus!

1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Optional: 3 tablespoons parmesan added last to small amount, blended then folded in


Puree the basil in 1/2 cup tomato sauce

Finely chop and lightly saute the garlic and onion adding a little salt at first to encourage a sweat rather than browning.

Puree into the basil.

Put the rest of the tomatoes in a large heavy saucepan.
Add all other ingredients to the pot, including the puree.

Bring slowly to a simmer, simmer for 25 minutes.

Let cool slightly, and then with an immersion blender, puree the whole mixture.

Serve warm to hot.

Or chill for later.

Optionally add the parmesan.

Garnish with chopped basil.
