(Copycat) La Madeline’s Tomato Basil Soup


This is the closest I have managed to copying the Tomato Basil soup at La Madeline. This is the best soup for cold winter nights, and I have yet to meet anyone who did not like it.

Ingredients: [‘whole canned tomatoes’, ‘tomato juice’, ‘basil leaves’, ‘cream’, ‘sweet unsalted butter’, ‘salt’, ‘black pepper’]

Quantity of Ingredients: [“4 cups whole canned tomatoes (or 8-10 fresh peeled, and chopped)”,”4 cups tomato juice, u0026 broth mix of (50/50, I used vegetable broth to make the recipe vegetarian)”,”8 basil leaves, chopped finely or 1 tablespoon dried basil”,”1 cup cream”,”8 tablespoons sweet unsalted butter”,”1/4 teaspoon salt”,”1/4 teaspoon black pepper”]

Number of Servings: 6

Steps: [‘Combine tomatoes, tomato juice and broth in a saucepan and simmer for 30 minutes.’, ‘Puree with basil in the blender. Make sure that this is smooth – I always strain it.’, ‘Return to saucepan. Add cream and butter while stirring over low heat.’, ‘Serve and enjoy!’]
