Why I Love This Recipe

There is a terrific restaurant nearby that would not share their recipe for theier Tomato Basil Soup. All the recipes on the Internet had nothing that matched in taste. I decided to experiment and finally found the same soup as the restaurant makes. The secret is lime juice.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cups tomato juice/2 cups chicken broth
14 fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 c heavy whipping cream
1/2 c butter
1 tsp. sugar
4T - 1/4 lime juice ( taste before adding more than 4T )
salt and pepper to taste


Place all tomatoes and juice in stock pot over medium heat. Simmer for 30 minutes.

Coarsely chop the mixture in a food processor along with the basil leaves and return to stock pot.

Place pot over medium heat and stir in heavy cream and butter and sugar, salt and pepper

Heat, stirring until butter is melted. Do not boil.

Add lime juice to taste.
