Serves 1-2

  • 4 fresh tomatoes, preferably organic heirloom varieties, cut into quarters
  • 1 tablespoon (bottled) julienned sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  1. 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.
  2. Pour into bowl(s) and add diced avocado and additional fresh basil to garnish, if desired.
