INGREDIENTS

  • 3 slices New York Brand® Texas Garlic Toast
  • 12 large Roma tomatoes, each cut in half
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped onions
  • One (14 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

PREPARATION

Preheat the oven to 400° F. Oil a rimmed sheet pan and transfer tomatoes to the pan, cut side down. Roast tomatoes for 30 minutes. Remove from oven; cool slightly and peel off the tomato skin, discard the skin.

Chop 2 slices New York Brand Texas Garlic Toasts into 1-inch pieces, to be used in the soup and chop the remaining slice into ½-inch pieces to be used as a garnish for the soup.

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium high heat; add onions and sauté 3 to 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, stock, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes. Add the 2 chopped slices of toast and stir into the soup mixture.  In small batches, carefully puree the hot soup in a blender or food processor. Transfer the soup back to the pot and stir in the basil. Garnish the soup with additional chopped toast.

downs How much basil? Never listed basil in the ingredients, but you are supposed to add it to the soup at the end?
