Easy Tomato soup with fresh tomatoes, basil

Notes :
  • Taste of the soup totally depends on the tomatoes used. I have used tomatoes on the vine.
  • If you have fresh basil available, you can replace about 1/2 tablespoon of chopped fresh basil for 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil.
  • If you like the soup smooth, you can run it through a strainer if you want.
  • If you prefer you can add vegetable stock, instead of water. But I preferred adding water.
