Ingredients

  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ea. large onion, chopped
  • 7 ea. large plum tomatoes, halved, seeded, and chopped
  • 5 ea. fresh basil leaves, stacked, rolled, and cut into shreds (chiffonade)
  • 1 T. garlic, minced

  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, basil, garlic, and oregano, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes soften, about 5 minutes. Add stock and bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer until all ingredients are very soft, about 18 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream.
  2. Allow soup to cool for 10 minutes. Using hand-held or countertop blender, puree soup. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. To serve, divide soup among 6 bowls. Garnish with diced avocado. For additional presentation and flavor, add a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
