Need a good way to use up some tomatoes?  My mom brought me a bunch of super ripe tomatoes from her garden and I wanted to use them before they went bad. I also didn’t feel like cooking, so what to do?  Tomato soup!

Recipe:

Combine the following ingredients in the VitaMix

Several medium size ripe tomatoes

Cheese (all I had were two slices of swiss and some feta but could also use cheddar if you prefer)

1 clove garlic

1 shallot (could also use onion)

handful fresh cut basil

1.5 cups chicken broth (or homemade chicken stock in this case)

1 cup water

salt and pepper to taste

With the VitaMix set on variable speed, begin on 1 and slowly turn up to 10.  To heat the soup in the blender, let it run on high for 5 minutes.  Garnish with Parmesan cheese.  Great served with a grilled cheese sandwich or quesadilla!
