Super Easy Tomato Basil Soup

This recipe has been one of my favorites this summer.  I think it is the best soup and the best spaghetti sauce ever!  It takes all of about 5 minutes to make it.

Garden Fresh Tomato Basil Soup

2-3 large tomatoes, fresh from the garden
Fresh Basil
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Celtic Salt
Fresh ground pepper

Wash and core tomatoes and put in a blender (Blend-tec or Vitamix) add several large leaves of basil and two pinches of salt.  Blend until smooth.  With blender running add the olive oil.  Now blend until it warms up and you can serve it straight from the blender.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  This can be served as a soup but it is also wonderful on spaghetti squash and pasta.  Enjoy!

Just showing you these are not he most beautiful tomatoes.

And certainly not the most beautiful basil

.....but with a little luck and some blending

They make a beautiful soup!
