tomato basil soup

i posted this picture on instagram for my #fmsphotoaday picture. i got some requests for the recipe for the tomato soup i made.

this recipe came from old roommate nettie who i think got it from her former co-worker's wife. so sorry joy. i have no idea how to properly credit/link you to this recipe.

i usually double the recipe to make a giant pot of soup
4 tomatoes peeled, seeded, and diced (i didn't actually peel, seed, or really dice)
4 cups tomato juice
14 leaves fresh basil (have you seen the basil in the tube? that's what i used)
1 c heavy whipping cream
1/2 c butter (doubled everything except the butter)
salt and pepper to taste
medium onion chopped and sautéed
shredded parmesan cheese

place tomatoes and juice in stock pot over medium heat. simmer 30 minutes. purée tomato mixture with basil and onions. return to pot. place over medium heat and add butter and heavy cream. season with salt and pepper. heat, stirring until butter is melted. do not boil.

this is perfect for the bitter cold weather we are experiencing right now.
