Homemade Tomato Soup Recipe

This weekend we had some friends over, and we provided our favorite meal:  build your own grilled cheese bar and tomato soup. We have really enjoyed grilled cheese bars.  We supply a bunch of different kinds of cheeses, with meats, veggies and sauces.  Most creative so far is the pizza grilled cheese!  Yum!

Here is a yummy and delicious recipe

Scrumptious Tomato Soup

Peel eight carrots and dice

Dice one and a half onions

Dice 1 red bell pepper and 1 orange bell pepper

3 quarts whole tomatoes, juice and all

3 cups beef broth

1 1/2 cups of milk

1 cup grated parmesan

basil

salt

pepper

4 large cloves of garlic

Cook the onions, carrots, garlic and bell peppers in 1 stick of butter.  Yes you heard that right, melt one stick of butter and cook the diced veggies until tender, about 20 minutes over medium heat.  Once those are tender, add three quarts of whole tomatoes juice and all to the pot, add the basil, salt and pepper and simmer for another 20 minutes.  Add the beef broth, and let simmer again for 20 more minutes.  Get an emersion blender and blend until smooth.  Add the milk and cheese, cook again until warmed through.  Add a little more salt and pepper to taste, and the soup is done.

I garnished my with blue cheese, and I loved it!  But try whatever cheese you think would work for you, or no cheese at all!  My children loved this soup, and now actually want this instead of the canned goodness we all know and love.

I hope you all love it!

Love,

Suzy
