Tomato Soup

Who can remember ever having a bowl of tomato soup without a grilled cheese sandwich? Whether you were a kid in the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s, most likely they were served together. There is a good reason for that. Together, they are amazing!!

I love this recipe because all the ingredients in the soup support the all-star tomato. All whole ingredients so there is nothing to fear or feel guilty about!! 


Olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tbls. dried oregano
2 cans organic crushed tomatoes
2 cups organic vegetable (or chicken) stock
¼ cup each, flat leaf parsley & basil
Salt & pepper
1 tsp. Red pepper flake (or more if you like it spicier)
2 cups whole milk (or half & half)
Serve with shaved parmesan & chopped basil

Saute onion in olive oil over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add garlic and oregano, salt & pepper. Saute an additional 2 minutes.

Add tomatoes, stock, herbs and season. Bring up to a simmer. Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes.

Stir, then add the milk. Taste, re-season and serve with shaved parmesan and fresh basil on top.

Since we all agree that grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup should not be separated, that is my serving suggestion. My only recommendation is to seek out a whole grain bread that has no preservatives, additives or other yucky oils or sugars.

I love Ezekiel bread. Also, my local health food store offers whole grain lavash rounds. I toast them with olive oil and sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Slice into triangles and these are an excellent alternative to the traditional grilled cheese sandwich!
