This is a super-easy tomato basil soup! It's best made with ripe, fresh heirloom tomatoes, and fresh basil.
Just add some onion, garlic, salt & pepper, and cream (optional), and you'll quickly have a pot full of the best tomato soup you've ever eaten! Pair with crusty bread or eat it in a bread bowl for super-lunch bonus points.

* I get my awesome heirloom tomatoes from Wild Boar Farms at my local farmers' market. They sell seeds online if you want to grow your own! Highly recommended.
