Tomato Basil Soup

This recipe is a dead ringer for La Madeleine’s. I found it on a website called

  • 4 cups canned crushed tomatoes
  • 12 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 stick sweet unsalted butter
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • salt to taste

Simmer tomatoes in a saucepan for 30 minutes. Puree, with the basil leaves in a blender or food processor. Return to saucepan and add cream, butter, salt and pepper while stirring over low heat. Garnish with basil leaves and serve with your favorite bread.
