1 c. water
2 c. arugula (roquette)
2/3 to 1 c. fresh basil
3 med. or large tomatoes, orange or yellow (less acidic)
Blend all ingredients except for tomatoes. Add the tomatoes last and blend just enough to leave tomato chunks.
Taste for flavor, add pinch of sea salt if needed, or blend in 2-3 stalks celery before tomatoes.A velvety texture, warm flavor, filling and most of all, TASTY!
I'm so glad I plunked a basil plant into a pot and brought it indoors about 2 days before our first frost. It looks a little leggy, but it gets trimmed up regularly for recipes. Wonderful to have it FRESH as the rain and hail pelts down outside the dining room window!
