Foody Friday: Simple Homemade Tomato Soup

tomato soup

I woke up a few mornings ago craving tomato soup, and luckily we had all the ingredients needed to make it happen!

What I used:

2 medium carrots

1 large clove of garlic

1 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes

1 cup of not-chick’n broth

basil, oregano, salt, and pepper to taste

a small handful of shredded Parmesan cheese for topping (optional)

What I did:

First, I peeled the carrots and sauteed them in butter on low heat until tender. Next, in a separate pot, I sauteed the clove of garlic. Once it was a little browned, I added the carrots and entire can of tomatoes. After allowing them to simmer for a bit, I added the prepared broth and seasoned the mixture to taste. As a final step, I blended the soup with an immersion blender to liquefy the chunks of carrots and tomatoes. After realizing that we had Parmesan cheese in the fridge, I added a little of that as well. Done and done!

I am in no way a pro in the kitchen, but this soup actually turned out really well. I’ll definitely be making another batch, and soon.
