Heirloom Tomato Soup Recipe

This beautiful heirloom tomato is called Lemon Oxheart.  Can you see the heart shape?  Each plant will produce several of these huge, golden orbs.  I have been successful starting this variety from seed.  They are delicious and perfect in any tomato recipe.  If you're not already growing heirloom vegetables, give them a try!  The subtle differences in flavor, form and color are definitely worth the space they take in your garden!
 
 


Heirloom Tomato Soup Recipe
 
8 Cups Heirloom Tomatoes
3 Cloves Garlic
8 - 10 Large Fresh Basil Leaves
 4- 6 Sprigs Fresh Oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste
 
Place tomatoes in slow cooker.  Cook on high for four hours.




Pure' in food processor with herbs until smooth.  My processor isn't very big, so I do this in batches.  Return to slow cooker to re-heat.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Garnish with parmesan and basil.



 
 
 Depending on which tomatoes you use, the soup may or may not be red.  'Not to worry, though, it's still tasty!
 
Our favorite side with tomato soup is grilled cheese sandwiches.  How do you like it?
