Inspired by the fantastic meal I had at Flour Bakery, I made this at home... it was almost as good.  Not quite, but almost.  And ten times faster!

A quick tomato soup for a rushed time of year!

Posted on Posted in Inspiration, Recipes

So for my second post of the day, I present to you my favorite under-15 minute soup.  Seriously, the hardest part of this soup is opening the canned tomatoes.  I struggle with that a lot.  It’s kind of sad.  Anyway, this tomato soup is the one I make whenever I’m in a  huge rush to get somewhere and it’s cold outside (or if it’s not).  Here it is!

Homemade Tomato Soup

Make as much or as little as you want–  leftovers store really well!

  • Mince and saute a few cloves of garlic or shallots in a drop of olive oil in a pot big enough to hold the soup.
  • Open a can (or two, or three…) of unsalted diced tomatoes and dump them in the pot.
  • While the tomatoes heat up, add basil, oregano, salt, pepper, romano, etc. as you wish.
  • Use a stick blender (or a real blender) to blend the chunks to whatever texture you want.
  • Pour into a bowl.  Eat.  Wash the dishes.  Repeat.

The sandwich I serve with it (if I have time) is pesto, mozzarella, tomatoes, arugula/spinach, and sea salt on whole wheat (homemade is best!) bread… soooooo good!

Sprinkle the soup with cheese and enjoy the Christmas colors!
