Local Tomato Bisque
Earlier this week, I tried a cool tomato soup and since I still have a steady amount of tomatoes growing in our garden, I decided to try making a warm one tonight.
The following amounts will serve two. For a larger batch, double the amounts below.
4 ripe tomatoes
1/2 of a small onion
3 fresh basil leaves
1 cup whole milk
3/4 tablespoon brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
Saute the onions while you peel and seed the tomatoes. Add the tomatoes, basil, brown sugar, salt and pepper to the onions and simmer until tomatoes are thoroughly cooked (about 20 minutes).
Transfer everything to a blender and puree. Add in the milk and transfer it back to the stove. Heat (without boiling) and serve warm.
