You’ll never reach for canned soup again once you try this creamy Homemade Tomato Soup for two. Pair it with a melty grilled cheese sandwich for a fulfilling lunch or dinner.
I wasn’t planning on blogging this homemade tomato soup for two recipe, but from the moment I took my first bite, I knew I had to share it.
I’m not sure what happened to me this summer as I haven’t done very many summery things, but there I was in the beginning of August and haven’t made it to one farmer’s market. Not the one in the neighborhood next door. Not the one I went to multiple times last year. Not a new one to check out. Not a single one. It’s not like I’ve been busy every weekend and couldn’t make it. I guess you can chalk it up to laziness because I don’t have any excuses.
I finally made it to a farmer’s market with my heart set on buying a basket of heirloom tomatoes because I wanted to make a tomato galette. They taste so much better than regular tomatoes because of the way they are grown. After making two galettes, I still had plenty of heirlooms left. What else to make? Weirdly enough, I decided to make tomato soup. Yes, soup when it’s 90 degrees outside. If you tell me you don’t like tomato soup, I guarantee it’s because you’ve never had homemade tomato soup before. Canned soup is light years away from tasting like real tomato soup. This is the recipe that’ll convince you to never buy canned again. Fresh chopped tomatoes are lightly cooked, allowing the flavor to shine through every bite.
