Ingredients

  • 2 lbs beefsteak tomatoes about 5 medium-sized, cored and cut in to chunks
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion sliced in to rings
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed (but not sliced or minced)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper

Skillet Corn:

  • 3 cobs fresh corn kernels cut from cob (can use frozen)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Garnish:

  • Fresh baby arugula
  • Feta cheese crumbled

Instructions

  • For the soup: Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened and fragrant. Add chicken broth, tomato chunks and thyme leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer about 15-20 minutes, or until tomatoes have softened. Using an immersion blender (or a blender, in small batches), puree soup. Taste and add salt and pepper, to taste. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer while you make the corn.
  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add corn kernels and cook, stirring regularly, until corn is cooked and golden.
  • To serve, spoon warm soup in to a shallow soup bowl. Sprinkle a little arugula on the side or in the middle. Spoon some warm corn on top of the arugula, then top with crumbled feta cheese.
