When served with cheese toast and a salad, this quick version of the classic
soup makes a refreshingly light supper. Toasted French bread spread with
light Boursin cheese is a tasty stand-in for the standard grilled cheese
1) Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds,
stirring constantly. Stir in the broth, salt, and tomatoes; bring to a boild
Reduce heat; simmer 20 minutes. Stir in basil.
2) Place half of the soup in blender; process until smooth. Pour pureed soup
into a bowl, and repeat procedure with remaining soup. Garnish with basil

Roll the leaves together tightly, and then slice the roll thinly. The
ribbonlike slices are called chiffonade.
