2. Prepare produce by cutting tomatoes in half and chopping onion into small chunks.
3. Place tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil leaves, pepper and sea salt into the blender container and secure lid.
4. Start blender on Low and blend for 30 seconds.
5. Switch machine to High and continue blending for 30 seconds.
6. Transfer blended mix to pot and simmer on the stove for 30 minutes to 1 hour (the longer it simmers, the greater the flavor).
7. Season soup with additional pepper, as needed.
8. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight glass container for up to 3 days.

Please choose organic ingredients when possible.
