Tomato Soup #SundaySupper

Sunday Supper logoA few weeks ago, the Sunday Supper team celebrated National Grilled Cheese Month by sharing their favorite grilled cheese recipes. The list of recipes was simply mouth-watering and oozing with yummy, gooey cheesiness.  Of course, I pinned a few. If you missed it, go skim the recipe roundup here.

I’m a huge fan of cheese but melted cheese takes any dish to another whole delicious level. When it comes to a grilled cheese sandwich, I love the classics and healthy. Whether it’s mozzarella or yellow American cheese sandwiched between two slices of hearty grain bread or cheddar pressed between Cuban bread, the bread should always be crisp and stacked with enough cheese to drip over the edges.

Though the bread that embraces the cheese or even the cheese may change, my grilled cheese sandwich is always served with warm bowl of Tomato Soup.

Melted cheese and a warm bowl of creamy tomato soup is more than a pairing; it’s a partnership like bread and butter. Something about the combination of the two says comfort and love like a mother’s hug.

Once you realize how easy it is to make this soup, you will never buy canned tomato soup again. In less than 30 minutes, you can have a healthy bowl of tomato soup rich with lycopene and Vitamin C.  With only three ingredients (two if you count two 28 oz canned tomatoes as one) and only three steps to make it, you will love the simplicity and the rich, bright, full flavor. Plus you will wow everyone who tastes it.

In a nutshell, you sauté’ chopped onions in olive oil until soft, add chopped tomatoes and then puree the soup. That’s it. Although you can use fresh ripe tomatoes, canned chopped tomatoes works just as well and saves you a bit of time.

While the soup simmers, prepare a grilled cheese sandwich to accompany it. Everyone needs a buddy and tomato soup and a grilled cheese are the perfect friendship.

    Very coincidently tomato soup is on the menu for our Sunday Supper today. It is cold and rainy today and since tomato soup is the perfect comfort food I thought it was a perfect idea.
