‘Tis the Season for Tomatoes

If you’ve got a healthy tomato plant or two right now, you’re likely the most popular home on the block. You’re also probably running out of ideas for using the plethora of garden glory.

We’ve got your back.

Try them cut into chunks with nothing more than feta (and maybe some basil if you’re ambitious). It’s heavenly and so simple.

Or, kids love tomato soup with grilled cheese. You can serve it alone with tortilla chips too.


1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves fresh garlic, diced
1T olive oil
6-8 tomotoes
1 hot red pepper, chopped (optional)
2 cups water
1/2 cup milk or soy/rice milk
1t salt
coarse pepper to taste
6-8 leaves fresh basil (chopped)


Saute the onion in the olive oil on medium heat until browned (5-7 minutes). Add garlic and saute another 2 minutes. Cut up tomatoes in chunks and add to pot. Add water, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then let simmer at least 20 minutes. Add milk and basil. Serve with shredded cheese and tortilla chips.
