ripe plum or assorted tomatoes
olive oil, extra virgin
onion, chopped fine
orange zested for garnish
1Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line pans with foil, sprinkle with olive oil. Arrange thickly sliced tomatoes on them and bake 2 hours.
2Place oil in a large pot, add the onions and saute about 10 min. Add the garlic and cook an additional 3 min.** Be careful not to burn or scorch garlic.**
3Add the tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer partially covered.
4After 15-20 soup will start to thicken, remove from heat. **REMOVE the tomato skins as best you can**
5Cool soup and then run through a food processor. Strain the soup through a fine mesh colander and then let it chill in refrigerator.
6* If you prefer the soup served hot, skip above chilling and heat slightly on stove.
7Top with orange zest and croutons.
8You can serve this in bowls, ramekins or shot glasses. I have a picture above with the shot glasses and it makes a really elegant and impressive appetizer.
