Happy Weekend! With the cold weather lingering outside, I don't think I can imagine a better way to warm up than with some delicious homemade tomato soup! I made this soup last night and plan to enjoy it with a delicious grilled cheese sandwich this weekend while the snow is coming down outside. This recipe is originally from Everyday Occassions by Jenny Steffens Hobick. I halved the recipe, but if you want to see the full list of ingredients, please go visit Jenny's site.
This soup tastes amazing and was incredibly simple to put together! First, gather up your ingredients:
|Sorry about the slight blur!|
To start, saute the garlic and olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
|Mmm... this is my favorite smell - reminds me of bruschetta!|
And then add the whole tomatoes (there are about 8 in a can - use 4) one at a time, squeezing each to break it up before adding it to the pan.
Next, add the chicken stock, as well as the salt, pepper and sugar to taste.
Let this cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Then add the basil and light cream.

old one for not a lot of money - please send them my way!
If you live in the Northeast, how are you planning to keep warm this weekend? Cooking some delicious comfort food? Or maybe baking up a storm? I'm looking forward to finishing up our entryway, reading some good books and seeing how big of a mess I can make in our kitchen! Hope you all have a wonderful and warm weekend - wherever you are! Happy Friday!
For the record this is my 4th soup in my 26 Soups Project. You can see the others here, here and here!
