Quick & Easy Tomato Soup Recipe

Quick & Easy Tomato Soup @yourhomebasedmom.com

I have always loved tomato soup.  Growing up my favorite lunch and sometimes dinner was a bowl tomato soup and of course it was always accompanied by a grilled cheese sandwich.  We didn’t have a lunch room at my elementary school so I walked home for lunch every day and many times I came home to a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich.  It always tasted wonderful, especially when I had to walk home through 10 feet of snow for blocks.  (at least that is what I use to tell my kids!)

That tomato soup always came out of a can.  And I loved it.

Quick & Easy Tomato Soup
I have shared several tomato soup recipes with you before (see below).  Some of them use fresh tomatoes and others canned tomatoes. But sometimes when you’ve got that craving for tomato soup and you don’t have a lot of time you just need to open a can of tomato soup!

Today I want to show you how you can easily do that and just dress it up a bit so it doesn’t taste like you are eating tomato soup straight out of a can.

Quick & Easy Tomato Soup

To dress up the soup I sauteed some onions in olive oil, added in the soup mixed with a can of milk (you can also use water).   I then dressed it up with some dried basil, rosemary and some Parmesan Cheese.  So yummy and of course I served it with a grilled cheese sandwich!  No one will know it came out of a can.
