Creamy Tomato Soup

Being snowed in only means comfort foods and catching up on homework. When you need to cook in bulk for the day, creamy tomato soup seems to do the trick every time. 🙂

Ingredients:

    • 6 tomatoes, diced
    • 2 large carrots, diced
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1 onion, minced
    • 3 cups chicken stock
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/3 cup fresh basil
    • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • Parsley to garnish, chopped

  4. Transfer mixture into a food processor and blend until you get a creamy liquid consistency. Whisk in heavy cream.

  • I’m not generally a fan of tomato soup. Condensed canned tomato soup (you know which brand) was one of my mom’s staples for lunch before I started school, and along with cottage cheese and canned peaches, I’ve had an aversion to it ever since. But the addition of garlic caught my eye, as well as the carrots and heavy cream. What is there left to love? I’m gonna try this for a weeknight quicky, and serve it with slices of Dutch oven bread toasted with gooey cheese on top!

    • The carrot adds a tad of sweetness, but pretty much everything can be to taste. Hope it goes well! 🙂
