Specialty Recipe

Fresh Tomato Bisque with Basil Oil

From the Kitchen of Chef Craig Hartman

2 large onions, roughly cut
8 large tomatoes, cored and roughly cut
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 cups vegetable stock
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Salt, pepper, and sugar to taste
Basil Oil:
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups fresh basil
Salt and sugar

Use a heavy bottomed soup pot. Place the pot over low flame and add the olive oil. Place the onions in the pot and lightly saute for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes and saute shortly. Add the seasonings and cover with a lid. Place on medium-low heat. Allow to cook until soft, stirring often. Place the mixture in the food processor and puree until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings.

To make the basil oil, just place the ingredients in the food processor and puree for about 5 minutes. Place in a squeeze bottle and garnish the soup with it.
