Addictive tomato soup
(I moved this recipe over from my old food blog - sogoodsoeasy.blogspot.com )
"My new favorite addictive taste"
That was Reid's response to this easy soup I put together a few years ago
There's no exact recipe
Here's what I did:
Sauteed in olive oil: half a large onion, a small pepper and three cloves of garlic - all chopped.
While cooking, added hot pepper flakes (generous pinch), dried basil (about 1/2 tsp) and dried oregano (about 1/4 tsp).
Poured in 2 cans chopped tomatoes and 1 can chicken broth
Added pepper to taste plus a couple teaspoons sugar (I used brown)
Simmered 15-20 minutes
Took off heat and stirred in 1/2 cup cream
Simmered 15 to 20 minutes
Perfect with crusty fermented european bread
