Cream of Tomato Soup

Garlic Parmesan Sourdough Toast

Instructions

Cream of Tomato Soup

  • In a large sauce pan, saute the diced onion in the butter for about 5 minutes or until it starts to turn translucent.
  • Add the garlic, and continue to saute until the onions and garlic are soft.
  • Add the diced tomatoes and tomato paste and stir to combine.
  • Add the vegetable or chicken stock and heavy cream, and stir to combine.
  • Add the salt and pepper and stir.
  • Bring to a gentle boil, then turn the heat all the way down to low and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  • Use an immersion blender to blend the soup into a smoother texture. For an even smoother texture, you can blend the cream of tomato soup in a high powered blender like a Blendtec. We like ours with some texture, so we use an immersion blender.
  • Serve in bowls garnished with fresh basil. Add salt and pepper to taste, if needed.

Garlic Parmesan Sourdough Toast

  • Spread a thin layer of butter over each slice of bread.
  • Season the bread with garlic powder, salt, parsley and paprika, then top with 1-2 teaspoons of grated Parmesan.
  • Toast in the toaster oven for 2-3 minutes and serve with the cream of tomato soup. It tastes amazing dipped in the soup!
