Most people assume soup is for the winter months, but the best time for tomato basil soup is when you have fresh heirloom tomatoes to harvest. If I had to choose only two plants for my garden it would tomatoes and basil, and this soup would be the reason!

Over the past few years I’ve tried several different kinds of heirloom tomatoes and so far my favorites are Brandywines, Early Cascades and German Pinks.

While most heirloom tomato soup recipes include onions, chicken broth and garlic, this one doesn’t. I wanted a recipe that didn’t require a lot of ingredients.  So here it is!
