Comfort foods and Fall go hand in hand. It’s another one of those things I love about this season. Be it Breakfast, lunch, or dinner comfort foods helps me invite in the cooler weather. Here is an easy lunch idea that we make often each year as soon as the first good chill hits the air.
Tomato Basil Soup
2 Tbsp. EVOO, or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp. Butter
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 vine ripe tomatoes, chopped/diced
28 oz. can whole peeled or diced tomatoes
2 tsp. dried basil (or 1 Tbsp. basil paste))
1 tsp. dried oregano or thyme
1 Bay Leaf
1/2- 1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 cup chicken or veggie broth (I use my frozen homemade chicken stock cubes)
1/2 cup canned Evaporated milk or room temp. whipping cream (optional)
I have the full directions for this soup over at my other home on the web.
We eat this soup with regular or sautéed mushroom and onions grilled cheese sandwiches. This year I kicked it up a notch and made Pimento Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. I made some homemade Pimento Cheese the day before and used it to make this oowee gooey delicious sandwich. YUM!
