Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
My preferred ingredients are.... 2 cans of organic crushed tomatoes, 56 oz, 1 carton organic culinary veggie broth, 32 oz, at least 36 fresh basil leaves (minced), 1/2 pint of organic light cream, 1 pat of organic butter (size you would get in a restaurant). Boil tomatoes and broth, reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Add basil and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes (the longer and slower the boil the thicker and more flavorful the soup will be). Stir in cream and butter, low heat for another 15 minutes. Serve with Parmesan cheese crisps.
French Onion Soup
My preferred ingredients are.... 1 purple, 1 Vidalia, 1 sweet onion sliced and saute until translucent in little olive oil. Add onions to beef broth, boil hard, simmer and add 1 bottle red cooking wine and boil hard again, simmer. (the longer and slower the boil the thicker and more flavorful the soup will be) Serve with Parmesan cheese crisps.
