I could seriously eat it every day.
Recently when I decided to eat less food that came from cans I had to come up with a recipe for tomato soup..I have tried many and modified more until I figured out how to turn tomatoes from my garden into yummy tomato soup.
- 4 cups tomato sauce
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 4 whole tomatoes blanched and peeled*
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
1. Add tomato sauce and chicken stock to a pan.
3. Add heavy cream and cook for 10 more minutes.
4. Eat and Enjoy
You may be saying to your self, "Michael this sounds delish but I don't have tomatoes from the garden or homemade tomato sauce. What do I do?"
Well you can substitute 4 cups tomato sauce for a 2 - 14oz cans of crushed tomatoes and the whole tomatoes for 1 -28oz can of whole tomatoes. Everything else is the same.
As is often the case in my life recently I got the idea for this from pinterest. Please check out the original recipe with is also very good from Everyday Occasions by Jenny Steffens Hobick.
*I have never blanched anything before I tried this recipe. Its actually a great way to perserve whole tomatoes for future use.
Here is what I did.
