In the winter I like to eat a lot of soup and my favorite is tomato. It is creamy and fresh and goes so well with a half a sandwich. In the summer I make this soup with fresh tomatoes but in the winter it is easier and cheaper to just use canned tomatoes. This is a basic soup that can be dressed up with spices, vegetables, and noodles so go crazy with it and make it your own.
Easy Tomato Soup
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- One 28 ounce can tomatoes, diced
- 2 cups vegetable stock
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon Diamond kosher salt
- Fresh parsley or basil for garnish
In a large pot, over medium low heat simmer the butter, cayenne pepper, tomatoes and vegetable stock for 15 minutes.
In batches, puree the tomato mixture in a food processor or blender. Make sure to only fill the blender or food processor to half capacity in case any air bubbles arise so that the top doesn’t fly off.
Pour the tomato puree into another large pot and stir in the heavy cream and salt.
Heat the soup of medium low, and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Ladle into warmed bowls and garnish with parsley or fresh basil.
