We all know Heirloom Tomatoes are fantastically delicious! However, they don’t necessarily make great sauce or soup, except when you roast them first!
Heirloom Tomatoes, core removed and thickly sliced
Shallots or Onions, sliced
Salt and Pepper
Good Olive Oil
Cream or Creme Fraiche
Preheat oven to 375 F. Put the onion slices into a roasting dish, then top with the tomatoes. Drizzle over a decent amount of oil, sprinkle on a bit of salt and pepper. Roast for about an hour. When it is done puree everything. Adjust seasoning. If you like you can add a bit of cream or creme fraiche and top with finely chopped basil.
