Tomato Basil Soup

* 6-8 roma tomatoes, diced
* 1 onion, diced
* 4 cloves garlic, minced
* 15 basil leaves
*1/4-1/3 cup half and half or cream
*1/2 tsp salt ( I use garlic salt)

Saute tomatoes, onion, and garlic in olive oil for about 5-10 mins. Use immersion blender or pour all cooking ingredients plus basil into a blender. Blend until smooth. Return to pot, add half and half/cream, salt, and allow to heat through.

I personally think this soup is just as good without the cream. Plus, then you have a lovely vegan soup. I enjoyed it more the 2nd day once the flavors had more time to blend.

Oh, I love love love tomato soup. This looks that grilled cheese I see on the side? Great combo!
