    This is a delicious version of tomato basil soup, made with fresh tomatoes and basil right out of my garden. I used a small potato in the first batch I made, and that worked out great. Since "medium" is variable, I used a slightly larger potato in a second batch, and I preferred the smaller size result. I did not use the Worchestershire sauce, and used 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil.

    Simply delightful. Used cherry tomatoes, shallots instead of onions and didn't add potato.
