Wanting comfort food, I decided that tomato soup and grilled cheese would fit the bill. Below is the recipe I made tonight, it was SO GOOD! A couple of additions I might add are a little cream, blended into the final product. Enjoy.
Homemade Tomato Soup
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1/4 cup chopped celery
2 (28 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 sm. can tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
Crumbled Goat cheese, or Gorgonzola (I also would use feta)
1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic until onion is tender.
2. Add carrot and celery; cook 7 to 9 minutes until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes, paste, broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt, thyme, pepper. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
Garnish with fresh basil and crumbled cheese.
