One of my favorite things about fall is that it is finally cool enough outside to start making soups! My favorite soup combination is tomato soup and grilled cheese. I don’t think that there is any better combo.
My favorite tomato soup recipe is a recipe adapted from the Pioneer Woman, so you know that it is golden. That woman is a genius and she brightens my Saturday mornings at 9:30am. I’ve tweaked it just a little bit, but it is relatively the same.
Tomato Basil Soup
6 tablespoons butter
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (46 oz can) of tomato juice
2 (14 oz cans) of diced tomatoes
1 ½ - 3 tablespoons sugar
Salt and pepper
1 cup cooking sherry
1 cup heavy cream
Chopped fresh parsley and basil
Then, the only thing that you can add to make it better are grilled cheese croutons to go on top. YUM.
