clarified tomato broth
80 mins
Serves 6

Our fans are the best. Here's an elegant, one-pot recipe from TPW from Cape Cod. He took a traditional recipe and gave it a modern twist with Heirloom Tomato Broth. In his words, "The Tomato Broth is really different and better than a traditional white wine or clam juice base." Try it, you'll love it. Thanks for this gourmet supper idea TPW, and for the beautiful photos.
