There’s something very comforting about tomato soup and grilled cheese.
I’ve been thinking about tomato soup for the last few weeks and couldn’t figure out why, then it hit me. One of the kids at the school has been begging me to make tomato soup and grilled cheeses for lunch. Personally I could never stand the taste of canned Campbells Tomato Soup so I made my version a little healthier than ones I’ve made in restaurants.
On a side note, why are creamy soups so good at restaurants? FAT and tons of it!
This version is much healthier and very easy to make. During the summer when my vegetable garden is producing I will use fresh tomatoes but during this time of year I prefer to stick with Muir Glen canned tomatoes.
This tomato soup recipe calls for whole milk. The milk helps smooth the flavor and takes away some of the acid from the tomatoes. However you can leave the milk out and it still tastes amazing.
