Makes 2 servings. 

This is a soup without the addition of any liquid. The taste and the consistency is totally dependent on the quality of the tomatoes.


  • 1 pound ripe tomatoes

  • 2 garlic cloves, quartered

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 5 thyme sprigs, plus leaves from 2 sprigs for garnish

  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  1. Rinse, core and slice the tomatoes. Place them in a saucepan along with the garlic, olive oil and thyme.

  2. Bring to a gentle boil, cover and cook over low heat until the tomatoes are very soft, about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.  

  3. Discard the thyme and puree in a Vitamix until very smooth.

  4. Season with salt, pepper and sugar. Garnish with thyme.
