Tomato Soup with Garlic Bread.


So, tonight I was roaming through our cabinets and came across this…A HUGE CAN OF TOMATOES.

if you don’t think this is big…look again!

6 LBS of tomato!!! My dad gave us this can of tomatoes a couple month’s ago & at the time I thought to myself when am I ever going to use this???? I finally figured out a way to us it, homemade tomato soup!! Of course there will be extra with this recipe considering its 6 lbs of tomato and a normal tomato soup recipe would only call for 2 lbs 🙂

Serves: 8-10

What you will need:

  1. 6 lbs of plum tomato (can or fresh)
  2. 3 medium onions
  3. 16 garlic gloves
  4. fresh oregano
  5. salt/pepper
  6. 6 cups of chicken broth
  7. 3 tbsp of sour cream
  8. fresh basil

In a large sauce pan, heat olive oil on medium. When hot, add the chopped onion & saute for 6 minutes. Add garlic & crushed red pepper, saute for an additional minute.

Add tomato, oregano & salt, stir for 10 minutes then add 6 cups of broth. Simmer for 10 minutes & add basil leaves.

Let soup cool then add to blender and blend all ingredients. Add additional broth if needed to reach the consistency.

After soup is blended, cook on low for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sour cream & cook for 5 more minutes. Preheat oven on 400, cook garlic for 10 minutes. Serve soup hot with garlic bread on the side 🙂

** I wanted to use the wheat pizza dough that has been seating in my fridge, so I decided to make a quick bbq, onion & Gorgonzola pizza as well.**

What you will need:

  • a bag of wheat pizza dough
  • handful of flour
  • bbq sauce 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 medium white onion
  • Gorgonzola cheese crumbles

Preheat oven on 450 degrees. Flour your counter or cutting board and roll out pizza dough. In a small skillet heat butter on medium, add sliced onions & caramelize. When pizza is rolled out, add to a baking pan and spray with oil;bake for 20 minutes. When dough is browned, add bbq sauce, onions & Gorgonzola cheese & bake for an additional 10 minutes.

Ok, pizza is ready!

TIME to EAT!

Perfect for a cold fall night!!! 🙂

    • Aw, thats great! thanks Remember, the tomato soup recipe is three times the normal serving only because I had that huge can So, if you divide the ingredient measures by 3, you’ll get the normal serving or I would divide it in half so you have extra!
