Tomato Basil Soup

This soup was done by my Mexican friend Mon on the last Friday cooking, it took me a while to get the recipe from her. In this recipe, she made the tomato sauce herself one day in advance, if you think it is too much work or do not have a juicer, feel free to use Clamato juice.

Serves 4
Preparation Time : 15 mins
Cooking Time : 35 mins


4 large tomatoes, diced
4 cups Clamato juice or tomato sauce
14 leaves fresh basil
1 cup sour cream/heavy whipping cream

2 tbsp chives
salt and pepper to taste
1 small green chili pepper, diced (optional)

Tomato Sauce
5 tomatoes
1 green pepper
1 celery stalk
1/2 bunch of parsley
1/2 bunch of coriander
6 green onion
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise


Tomato Sauce
1. In a juicer, add tomatoes, pepper, celery, parsley and onion.

2. Mix in lemon juice and mayonnaise to the tomato juice.

3. In large soup pot, boil diced tomatoes, chives and tomato sauce/Clamato juice over medium-high heat. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

4. In a blender, puree the soup mixture along with basil leaves.
