The days are getting colder and the holiday schedules are crazy. One of the things I love to eat during the winter is soup. I like to make my own but I don’t always have the time. That’s why I usually have a few cans on hand as back up.
Tomato is my favorite but it can get old quickly. Here’s how I take my $1 can of soup and turn it into a restaurant quality meal.
You can use regular tomato or tomato bisque. One has small chunks of tomatoes and the other one does not.
When making soup you add water to the pot. I like to add milk instead to make it creamier. It also helps cut down on the acidic taste.
Once that’s mixed well you can add seasonings. Often times we just eat what the can of soup provides. But adding a few seasonings can change the taste of any meal.
For tomato soup I like to add:
- Black Pepper
- Garlic Powder
* I do not measure. I just toss them in the pot. Best rule of thumb is if you can see the seasonings then it’s perfect.
I stir the seasoning in. A few minutes later I pour the soup in a bowl and enjoy. You can always make a grilled cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwich as a side. It’s a quick and easy meal for the whole family to enjoy.
