Another new blogging group. Because it isn’t enough to start working full time – I need to join more blogging groups too – hahaha!
Anyhow this one is call Soup Saturday Swappers and our theme this month is Healthy Soup Options!
Is there anything better than a classic tomato soup?
I’ve made a bunch of different versions of tomato soup over the years. I’ve added beans or sausage for a heartier soup, rosemary or cheddar and basil for a pop of flavor, and even grilled cheese croutons. But this time I wanted to take it back to the basics.
A smooth, silky tomato soup.
I found this amazing copycat version and it’s a new household staple. I served my soup alongside a croque monsieur (so delicious!!) and it was perfection! This soup is made for dipping grilled cheese sandwiches!
So make tomato soup and stay warm friends!
