Tomato, Corn, and Basil Soup

With frozen supersweet corn and good canned tomatoes, (like Muir Glen) you can make this soup all year round. It would be great with some cooked lobster in it, as lobster has a great flavor affinity for corn and tomatoes. Make sure you use fresh basil, not dried. A recipe from Dr. Andrew Weil and Rosie Daley's "The Healthy Kitchen". If you've never heard of ground tomatoes, they are sometimes referred to as "kitchen-ready." Ground tomatoes are not to be confused with purée, which is similar but more cooked. Crushed tomatoes, commonly used for pasta sauces, are made by adding ground tomatoes to a heavy medium made from tomato paste. Can't find ground tomatoes? Run a can of whole tomatoes through your food processor, or grind up an equivalent weight of ripe raw tomatoes.
