Author Notes: A simple and delicious way to use garden fresh tomatoes and basil. Easier to make than gazpacho because the ingredient list is paired down to the basics... —WinnieAb
fresh tomatoes, preferably organic heirloom varieties, cut into quarters
tablespoon (bottled) julienned sun-dried tomatoes in oil
cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
teaspoon sea salt
- Place all ingredients, except those for the garnish, in a blender (I use a high speed blender called a Blendtec) and process until fairly smooth. If you want it to be completely pureed, blend away until it’s the consistency you like; I personally prefer it to retain some texture.
- Pour into bowl(s) and add diced avocado and additional fresh basil to garnish, if desired.
