    Default Crockpot Soup

    Served this as a meal Monday. The daughter-units loved it and asked for it
    to be added to the meal rotation. As meals go, it was very easy and
    straight-forward.

    TOMATO AND BASIL SOUP

    INGREDIENTS:
    1 TBS EVOO
    2 TBS Butter
    1 Yellow Onion, Lg, chopped
    6 Tomatoes, rough chopped (Roma work best)
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    2-1/2 cups Chicken (or beef) stock
    1/2 cup white wine (dry, like Pinot Blanc from Alsace works best)
    2-3 TBS Tomato Paste
    2, 15-oz cans crushed tomatoes
    1 cup fresh basil, "shredded"
    Salt and cracked pepper to taste

    METHOD:
    In a large skillet, heat oil and butter together. Add in onion and cook for
    approx 5 minutes, until softened but not browned. Add in chopped tomatoes
    and juice.

    In crockpot, add stock, wine, basil, tomato paste and crushed tomatoes. Turn
    crockpot to high and cover. When onion finishes, add to crockpot. Stir
    together and recover. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.

    Serve with ciabatta and a gewurztraminer (for the adults).

    Yum. You have redeemed yourself in my eyes for your various and sundry
    culinary transgressions (i.e. MW).

    Do you think this would be nice served chilled? Sounds like it would. I
    just can't wrap my mind around the concept of hot soup when it's 97F outside
    and the Modesto-ites are frying eggs on the sidewalk....

    Yes; in fact that's a sidebar notation. Think gazpacho.

    I'd say you're on your way to hell with your heretical MW stance but I see
    you're there already. Say "Hi" to Dante for me.

    Isn't that the lamer version of Godwin? To invoke "you're going to hell"?

    I win.

    :-)))))

    I *make* mayo, you infidel, and I neither resort to nor abide chemicalized
    and uber sweetened MW. And you call yourself a cook, deRanger! For shame!!
