Ingredients: 
  • 3-4 # tomatoes
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 – 10 cloves garlic, to taste, optional
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Pinch stevia, to taste, optional
Instructions: 

METHOD 1:

  1. Fry the garlic until soft.
  2. Add the tomatoes and fry lightly. And water and simmer for at least 20 minutes.
  3. Blend. Season to taste, adding stevia to increase the sweetness and further bring out the tomato flavor if desired.
  4. Serve garnished with fresh basil. Enjoy!

METHOD 2:

  1. Slow roast the tomatoes and garlic in the oven for 1-2 hours on a low heat until very well cooked. The slow-cooking will bring out the tomatoes natural sweetness and add a deeper, richer flavor.
  2. Once cooked (you may need to bring the garlic out earlier to prevent it from burning), place in a pot and cover with water.
  3. Blend. Season to taste.
  4. Further warm soup if desired. Serve garnished with fresh basil. Enjoy!
