Tomato, Corn and Basil Soup
Heart Healthy Recipes From Dr. Andrew Weil
Dr. Andrew Weil, the so-called father of alternative medicine, has just released a new cookbook with co-author Rosie Daley, Oprah Winfrey's former chef. They shared some of their best recipes with Good Morning America.
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.
