There’s just something about warm tomato soup and melted cheddar cheese on toast. It’s not rocket science, people. It’s just feel good food. And who doesn’t love a big bowl of warm comfort food?
And making soup is souper fun. I had to. Sorry, not sorry.
There’s just something so peaceful about chopping vegetables, tossing them in a pot and stirring. I just stand in front of the stove and stir. And stir. And stir. And completely space out. Take a taste. Stir again. Think some more. Stir. And taste some more. It’s the kind of thing I do when I have a lot to think about. Roasted tomato basil bisque is lets me take my time to stir + think and then plop down on the couch with a big grilled cheese sandwich, soup, and a blankey. Talk about being self-less. This soup is all about YOU.
This is the second Wednesday of this month that i’m doing what’s called ‘Veggie Wednesday’. It’s a month long series for March. On Veggie Wednesday’s we cook super flavorful food made entirely of vegetables! And I promise, you wont even miss the meat! My little carnivore hubby agrees!
PS. I topped my tomato soup with just a bit of fresh julienned basil and a few drop of fresh cream. And of course I had a big old melty grilled cheese sandwich on the side. Yumm-O. But the possibilities are endless! Chives, crackers, parmesan, olive oil, sourdough croutons…
I die just imagining the toppings that would pair so well with this tomato bisque.
