This recipe is from the early months of the blog. It has been buried deep within the archives and disguised with one of the worst photos I have ever taken. But because this soup is what made me realize that not all tomato soup is as disgusting as what comes in a can, it needed to be rescued and reintroduced. This is one of my very favorite soups, and when paired with a grilled cheese panini on fresh homemade sourdough, it just doesn’t get much better. Even though my temporary heartburn currently makes all soup an unpleasant experience, I just couldn’t go the whole winter without enjoying this meal at least once. And even though most of us are ready for the cold weather to make a speedy retreat, I know better. It’s going to stick around for a while longer with little bursts of warmth in between. When one of those blustery days shows its ugly face, be ready. You can make this soup with a grilled cheese, sit inside nice and cozy and wait out the cold just a little bit longer.
