Cream of Tomato Soup

Servings: 8 Prep: 10 min Cook: 20 min Total: 30 min

I love a cream based soup. Just about anything heated, pureed with cream and a little salt is fantastic! A good tomato, with a little salt … FANTASTIC! Tomatoes, with cream, pureed with a little salt! AMAZING!

It’s such a simple thing. Tomatoes, cream, heat, puree and eat. Basic, simple and comforting. All that’s really needed now is … a grilled cheese sandwich!

Cream of Tomato Soup can be garnished in a variety of ways. Just some fresh slices of basil is a great way to go. Some fried garlic chips are delicious! Bacon and parmesan crisp, with a drizzle of bacon fat. YUM!

In the photos, I’ve got some fresh pesto and garlic croutons. YUM!
