I know it's summer, but with soups being so quick, easy, and tasty, I don't know if giving them up for half the year is realistic! Even if it warms you up a bit when you eat it, a nice, summery tomato soup can certainly round out a meal, whether it be pizza, salad, or the childhood standard of a grilled cheese sandwich. The seasonings you use can also alter the flavor to better match whatever you're in the mood for at the time! Although it is one option (I used it this time, but I hope to make my own next time.), you're not limited to using a canned tomato soup. And after adding some seasonings, you can make a kid friendly soup that even adults will enjoy!
Tomato Soup (printable version)
A basic tomato soup with some extra seasonings.
- tomatoes/tomato soup/puree/paste (The main difference between these materials is the amount of water, so adjust the amount of water/stock accordingly and to taste.)
- seasonings (You can use a wide range of different seasonings - for example, rosemary, onion, garlic, thyme, pepper, basil, parsley, zest, dill, celery seed, sage, ginger, etc. I got lazy and just used Bragg's seasoning mix.)
- Combine all materials.
- Heat soup.
