Rainy day means tomato soup!

by Diane Shannon Hansell posted Sep 6 2017 4:27PM
The feeling came over me on Tuesday.... cool, windy and wet. What did I need? A grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup. It's the perfect fall lunch. And believe it or not, it's really easy to make. So never buy that can again. This should be your go to soup on any rainy day. Grill up a cheesy sandwich and dip away!

Creamy Tomato Soup

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 (28 oz) cans San Marzano peeled tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 8 large fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. In a heavy bottomed pot (or dutch oven), heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds - until fragrant. Add onion and cook, stirring as needed, until translucent - about 8 minutes.
  2. Add San Marzano peeled tomatoes (juice and all), chicken stock, and sugar. Bring to a low simmer. Cook uncovered, for 12 minutes or until it has thickened.
  3. Add the half and half, basil, oregano and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Using an immersion blender (or carefully transfer soup to a blender), puree soup until there are no large chunks left. Serve immediately with a grilled cheese or hunk of warm french bread!
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Pet of the Week 

Hey folks, my name is Dexter and I'm a two year old long hair cat with fur coloration they call tick. I guess it has speckles of white, black and brown that gives me a cool look. I also have these long white whiskers that mean I have smarts, of course that could be an old wive's tale, but it sure sounds good to me. Some say I may even have Maine Coon in my bloodlines, but nothing has been proven. No matter; because to me the most important thing is that I'm a nice guy, and I sure hope you'll think so too once you meet me. Read more about him here.
