It has been rainy and unseasonably cool for August this week which means SOUP for me! Actually, I love soup any time of the year. I know some people that will only eat soup when it’s cold… WHAT?!
This soup is by far one of my favorites. I’m all about comfort food and this tomato soup is just THAT! Rich, creamy and perfectly seasoned.
This recipe calls for herb seasoned bread crumbs. If you only have regular bread crumbs, just add a little Italian seasoning until it’s seasoned to your liking.
A word of caution when you purée the soup… be very careful with hot liquids in your blender, as hot liquids expand while blending. Or you can use an immersion blender if you have one.
Pair this soup with salad for the ultimate comforting lunch or dinner… ANY time of the year. Enjoy!Print
