Re: 12 Ways to Top your Tomato Soup Spark article

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Just saw this article on Spark, and there's something about it that I Love!

I think it's the sheer simplicity / purity / 'back to basics' factor. I mean ... what can be simpler, and tastier, or more comforting and warming on a cold day, than a nice bowl of home made tomato soup?

I haven't thought to make home made tomato soup in YEARS! (seriously!) ... but with these great topping ideas, you can guess what I'm going to be making for a light supper for a couple of days next week. Matched with a couple of slices of really hearty bread, it will make a great light supper.

Thanks again, Spark!!! emoticon

    I've only made a simpler version than the recipe included in the article ... mine I actually learned back in junior high cooking class (!) so you can imagine it's simple, but still good. I used to make it in my 20s, but then it fell out of my 'cooking repertoire' for some unknown reason, and I haven't made it for decades! (Oops, am I giving away my age here??!!!) lol

    I'm going by memory, but I believe all it was was a thin white sauce with tinned whole tomatoes stirred in. I remember that combining the two was the tricky part, to keep the soup from curdling. Both should be hot before combining, I think, and I recall that it was better to add one to the other ... but can't remember which! Probably the white sauce to the tomatoes??

    Anyway, now I might stew fresh tomatoes instead of using tinned, if I had time, and look up another recipe to add a bit more 'pizzazz' ... but, then again, with all those great topping ideas, maybe that wouldn't be necessary!!

    I read that article too and didn't realize that you could make this soup with canned tomatoes. I am going to try this too. Sounds yummy!

    I read the article, too, and may make tomato soup for the first time this winter.
