In a Pinch? This Tomato Soup Will Save You
January 22, 2015 21 Comments
Cream of tomato soup is one of my personal favorites especially when it is 10 degrees outside.
You can buy cans of cream of tomato, but I like to whip some up myself. The canned version tends to have more sodium than I like and it tastes a bit like the inside of a can.
Now, this soup is made with canned tomatoes but somehow does not taste like a can. I am not sure why that is but if you have a few minutes to spare you can literally whip this soup up.
My 10 year old daughter made this soup for me as part of a Girl Scout project to make breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. She did it all by herself! When she picked the recipe, I thought it wasn’t going to work – too simple and not enough herbs for an umph.
I ate the entire bowl and asked for more. It is goooood.
If you can find really nice imported Italian tomatoes, I find that they have the best flavor.
