    FOOD FRIDAY: TOMATO BASIL SOUP

    November 1, 2013 • 4:20 pm

    Do you know what I've been craving alllllll week? Soup, soup, and more soup. I consider myself a bit of a soup nazi, in fact. And my all-time favourite? Tomato soup paired with a extra cheesy grilled cheese! There's nothing quite like it. 

    I posted this recipe a couple years ago, but since it's one of my cold weather go-tos, I thought it was about time to show it off again, if I may! Making your own soup seems like a daunting task that only the super elite kitchen pros can pull off, but I’m telling you this soup is literally the simplest dish I make and the total prep and cooking time is no more than 20 minutes.

    More soup for you!

    Ingredients
    1 large can of diced tomatoes (if you have homemade canned even better! Go to the farmers market for the best!)

    1 tbsp of cream cheese
    1 tbsp butter (or olive oil)
    Salt & Pepper to taste
    Handful of fresh basil chiffoned/chopped

    Just made this--delicious and took practically zero prep work. I bought crushed tomatoes and I didn't even need to blend them! Delicious!
