  • 1 bunch of basil;
  • salt - to taste;
  • 230 ml of olive oil;
  • 2 cloves garlic;
  • 2 kg of ripe tomatoes;
  • 150 ml of water;
  • ½ teaspoon red wine vinegar.


Separate the basil leaves from the stems and put a few in cold water. Grind in the mortar the remaining leaves and salt until a pasty consistency. Transfer to a jar, pour in 200 ml of oil, close the lid and shake well.

Heat the remaining oil in a sauté pan. Put there finely chopped stems of basil and garlic slices, fry for 1 minute. Then add the tomatoes, water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for another 5 minutes until the tomatoes are softened.

Remove the soup from the fire, pour the vinegar and chop the blender to a homogeneous consistency. Pour soup on plates, pour oil on basil and decorate the remaining leaves.

Bon Appetit !
