Cooking Methods

  1. In a medium saucepan, stir together 1/2 cup broth, leeks, celery, garlic, salt, and pepper. Bring to simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat covered and simmered for 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  2. Pour the broth mixture into a food processor or blender. Process for about 1 minute, or until smooth. Return the mixture to the saucepan. Keep warm over low heat.
  3. Fill a small saucepan half-full with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium high. Put the tomatoes in the saucepan. Simmer for 10 seconds, or until the peel starts to loosen from the flesh. Let the tomatoes cool for a few minutes and cut them into quarters.
  4. In a food processor or blender, process the tomatoes and the remaining 1/2 cup broth in batches until smooth. Finally, add the basil.
  5. Pour the tomato mixture into the leek mixture. Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until the flavors have blended, stirring occasionally.
  6. Stir in the half-and-half. Cook over low heat for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve warm.
