  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 28 ounces canned ground tomatoes (preferably organic)
  • 1 cup purified water
  • (3 cups fresh corn kernels cut from the cob (or 1 pound frozen sweet corn, preferably organic)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • Cooking Directions

    Sauté the onions in the olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat until they just begin to brown. Add the garlic and sauté for a minute, stirring constantly. Pour in the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they give up their juice. Cover and continue cooking about 5 minutes more.

    Add the water and corn to the soup and cook until the corn is soft and the kernels lose their raw taste, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the basil, mix well, remove the heat, and serve immediately.
