Tomato Basil Soup and Grilled Cheese

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 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

1/2 cup canned Evaporated milk or room temp. whipping cream (optional)

Easy Tomato Basil Soup
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!

I'm not a fan of tomato soup but this one somewhat intrigues.

You can definitely change the ingredients to suit your taste. The recipe is forgiving. I have even added in some chopped carrots and diced celery to cook with the tomatoes. The added sugar helps with the bitterness of all those tomatoes so you don't want to leave that out :)
