4 cups onions
thinly sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
freshly ground
4 cups cherry tomatoes
½ cup garlic
thinly sliced, plus 1 whole clove, peeled and halved
3 cups stock
chicken broth, low salt or vegetable broth
6 slices whole wheat bread
cup basil
freshly chopped
6 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
finely shredded, or cream, optional


Preheat oven to 450°F.

Toss together onions, oil, salt and pepper in a big bowl, spread onions evenly in a 9-by-13-inch pan.

Roast the onions, stirring once or twice, until starting to brown, about 20 minutes.

Add tomatoes and ½ cup garlic, spread evenly and continue roasting, stirring once, until the tomatoes are falling apart and beginning to brown in spots, about 20 minutes more.

Transfer the onion-tomato mixture to a large saucepan.

Add broth, bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.

Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, arrange bread on a large baking sheet and bake until toasted, 8 to 10 minutes.

Rub both sides of the toasted bread with the halved garlic clove. (Discard remaining garlic.)

To serve:

Place a piece of toasted bread in a shallow soup bowl.

Ladle 1 cup soup over the bread.

Top with basil leaves and cheese or drizzle with cream if desired.

Serve warm.
