YUMMY heirloom tomato soup:

3 lbs. heirloom tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped

1 yellow onion, chopped



Saute the onion in a saucepan till soft.

Add the tomatoes and simmer for about 25 minutes.


Add salt and pepper.


I also made pesto, which I haven’t tried yet:

2 cups basil leaves (I added stems and flowers… trimming the basil plants back)

1 tsp minced garlic

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/3 cup pine nuts

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil


I stirred in a bit of lemon juice–it doesn’t seem to have helped; the pesto seems brown today. No salt yet.
