Faux Tomato Soup

I had one tomato that I needed to use up before it went bad so I decided to make Tomato Soup. But I had only one tomato so I searched the net and found this recipe which I modified.

1 large tomato, skin and seeds removed
1 cup Mott’s Garden Cocktail
1/2  white onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic bulb thinly sliced (or more if desired)
basil, fresh or dried
salt and pepper to taste

Heat a saucepan with a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.

Add onions and cook them until translucent.  Add sliced garlic and lightly brown.  Don’t burn the garlic as it will become bitter.  

Add tomato finely chopped and cook until mushy.

Add the garden cocktail.

Then add basil, salt, and pepper to taste.

Remove from stove and let the soup cool.

Once cool, put the soup in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Be careful as mixture might still be hot.

Add back to saucepan and reheat to serve.

Makes 1 serving.
