This is definitely what I consider to be the most flavorful and silky smooth tomato soup recipe I have ever made.
Be advised, I have only ever made one version of tomato soup.
This is how my kids like it. With a small side of the soup to dip their grilled cheese sandwhich in. They like medium cheddar cheese… but every now and I then I will get crazy and give them sharp cheddar.
And sometimes I dont make them take a bath at night.
We are really quite adventurous around here.
And here is how *I* like it. Big huge bowl of soup with tiny grilled cheese bites around it… I prefer meunster cheese. And sometimes I will add a bit of Gruyere cheese.
Ok, that was one time. When we got it for a gift. That stuff is like $20 a pound!
I posted this recipe on my blog once before, but have since simplified it because I thrive on simplicity.
(actually, I just stumbled upon this recipe again over at Cook’s Illustrated! They had a wonderful suggestion of adding 2 tablespoons of brandy when you add the broth… yum! Just dont give the kids any!!!)
Any leftovers I just put right back into the jar I got the tomatoes out of.
I just love this soup because I can use all natural ingredients and the tomatoes from that we canned from our garden. The kids love it and I feel good feeding it to them!
Its especially delicious when the temperature reaches a balmy high of 2 degrees. (with the *feels like* temp. around -15 degrees)
Comfort food at its finest!
