      Title: Fresh tomato soup with sweet basil
 Categories: Soups
      Yield: 6 servings
 
      1 md Onion
      2 tb Unsalted butter
     12    Red, ripe tomatoes,
           -preferably plum
      1 sm Clove garlic
           Salt and freshly ground
           -pepper
      1 c  Heavy cream
      1 bn Fresh sweet basil
    1/4 c  Sour cream, if serving cold
 
  Slice onion.  Melt butter in a large heavy pot and saute slices until
  they just begin to brown.  Quarter tomatoes and add them to the pot.
  
  Crush entire clove of garlic by giving it a good whack with the flat
  of a cleaver, loosening cloves and slightly cracking skins.  Add
  garlic skins and all to pot.  Add enough water to come to 1 inch
  above level of tomatoes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add cream.
  Bring soup to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook partially
  covered 20-25 minutes.  In a blender or food processor, puree soup,
  then strain,pushing through as much pulp as possible to obtain a
  smooth thick cream.
  
  To serve hot ladle soup into six warm bowls and garnish with fine
  julienned basil leaves.
  
  To serve cold allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate at
  least 2 hours, then add seasoning. It will require more salt and
  pepper then when serves hot.  Garnish with finely julienned basil
  leaves. Top with a dollop of sour cream.
  
  Yield: 6 servings
