recipe- tomato soup

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

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.
