Tomato and Basil Soup


With its sweet and slightly peppery notes, basil reigns supreme in Italian-inspired soups from tomato bisques to hearty vegetable stews, adding a layer of complexity that tingles the taste buds. This herb doesn't just contribute to the sensory delight of the dish; it also brings a visual vibrancy, turning an ordinary bowl of soup into a feast for the eyes. Brace yourself for a royal infusion that will have you singing "That's Amore!"
