Heirloom tomato soup

Heirloom tomato soup


2 1/2 lb. heirloom tomatoes (any variety you prefer)
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 bunch cilantro
1 to 2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
2 tbsp. salt
Additional salt and pepper, to taste

You can use any combination of heirloom tomatoes for this colorful, easy-to-make soup. It's a perfect complement to soft shell crab or Dungeness crab salad.


Core tomatoes and cut into quarters. Combine tomatoes, olive oil, cilantro, garlic and 2 tbsp. salt in a large bowl and gently mix together. Cover and let marinate for 4 to 5 hours at room temperature, then run through a food mill or blender. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve at room temperature with your choice of accompaniments, such as avocado, burrata or fresh mozzarella cheese and chives.
