OUTSTANDING!!! This soup enhances the pure flavor of tomatoes and not a lot of other ingredients competing for that garden fresh flavor. I used a specialty (read expensive!) olive oil for drizzling on top with fresh chives as garnish, as I had no basil, but I know it would be delicious with basil, too. Thanks Kimke
