Pinspiration – numero ocho
a few weeks ago it was super cold and i was jonesing for some soup. i absolutely love nordy’s tomato basil soup have seen a recipe for it, on pinterest of course.
but when i looked at this one, it just called to me.
maybe it’s because it is super easy to make.
maybe it’s because it has a “secret ingredient”.
maybe it’s because it only takes 35 minutes.
maybe it’s because it calls for half and half.
but mostly, maybe it’s because it meant that i finally “had a reason” to buy an immersion blender.
then you add 3 cans of diced tomatoes, juice included, and some chicken broth.
stir some and then go ahead and add some sugar, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. if you have bay leaves on hand, you’ll want to throw one of those in as well.
after about 30 minutes of simmering, remove the bay leaf and plug in your immersion blender. oh yea!!
finally, butter some bread, add some cheese, and grill them together.
and tell your wallet and/or husband to thank you for not going to nordy’s to buy a cup of tomato soup when you just made some for half the price and you have leftovers for the next few days.
