We Ate This All Week…
We were sick this week…
So I made this….
Rosemary Tomato Cream Soup
Havarti Grilled Cheese Sandwich…
The grilled cheese was delicious…
But the soup…
Like really, really, awesome!
So awesome I could’ve bathed in it…
But I didn’t…
Because that would be gross…
We ate this every day.
Somedays were soup + grilled cheese, somedays just soup, and somedays I ate soup with M’s parmesan flavored goldfish (which are excellent by the way.)
I don’t have one of those fancy immersion blenders, so I stuck with simple ingredients.
Simple = No Pureeing 🙂
Good News – We’re feeling a thousand times better.
Bad News – We’re out of soup.
Which means I better get cookin’!!
In other news… a great article was written about the Mommy Happy Hour I belong to. You can read it here.
Recipe adapted from Food Network.
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 tablespoons dried mince onion
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 1- 32 oz container of chicken stock
- 1 – 28 oz can pureed tomatoes
- 1 cup whole milk
- 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- freshly ground pepper
In a large soup pot, melt butter. Saute garlic and dried onion for a few minutes. Whisk in flour and cook for 4 minutes while constantly whisking.
Pour chicken stock and tomatoes into pot. Bring to a boil while whisking to avoid any flour clumps). Add rosemary & bay leaves into soup. You can tie them together with twine or use one of those herb bags. I just threw them in there and fished `em out later.
Let soup simmer for 30 minutes.
Remove herbs. Add sugar, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in milk 1/4 cup at a time.
Let soup simmer for additional 10 minutes.
I love tomato soup…especially the homemade variety, but I don’t love that you guys were sick!!
That soup looks delish. Glad you guys are feeling better!
I am so glad you all are feeling better! Soup definitely makes it better! I was craving soup this week and finally made some last night with homemade rosemary bread. It totally his the spot as soup with bread always seems to. Have a great day Estela!
Tomato soup + grilled cheese is the BEST combination for when you’re feeling sick. Totally reminds me of my childhood!
So glad you are feeling better! How could you not, with such delicious, gourmet tomato soup and grilled cheese. Yum!
I will 100% be making this soon. So glad you ladies are better!
I could eat this every day!
YAY! So glad your better! This soup looks amazing! We love tomato soup around here. I can’t wait to make it!
I really wish I would have had that soup this week while I was sick! Glad you are feeling better!
I love tomato soup and grilled cheese when I am sick! It always makes me feel instantly better!
i would wanna bathe in that soup too! LOL
The rosemary is so beautiful on the soup.
Keep feeling better.
That soup looks divine. Definitely need to give it a try.
The worse part about being sick is losing your taste buds. Glad you’re feeling better though. 🙂 Grilled cheese and tomato soup is such a nice comfort food, but I see you took it to the next level.. havarti? Umm.. YUM!! And the soup sounds mighty tasty too. You just can’t beat homemade. Get better. 🙂
If there is anything in the world better than grilled cheese I have yet to discover it 🙂
Except maybe chocolate… it’s a close one though!
So glad you gals are feeling better! The soup sounds amazing…anything with rosemary, actually…sounds amazing!! 🙂 And I have an immersion blender that has never been out of the box. It intimidates me!! And no need to dirty any more kitchen tools if you don’t need to! 🙂
