Nothing goes better with a grilled cheese than Tomato Soup!
When I decided to make these grilled pimento cheese sandwiches I knew I wanted to make my own tomato soup to go with them.
This recipe is not only fast and easy but delicious!
What you need,
1 tbsp. olive oil
½ cup finely diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
2 cups vegetable broth or chicken stock
2 15 oz. cans (4 cups) of diced tomatoes
1 tbsp. brown sugar
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
¼ cup chopped fresh basil
Salt and Pepper to taste
½ cup Greek yogurt
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic until tender, approximately 5 minutes. Toss in the bay leaves.
Add the tomatoes and broth, stir to combine. Stir in the brown sugar, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove the bay leaves from the pot. Use an immersion blender or a regular blender to puree the soup until smooth. Stir in the yogurt until well combined. Cook until the soup is heated through, about 5 minutes.
Serve alongside your favorite grilled cheese!
This soup is full of tomato flavor! The Greek yogurt makes it creamy but not heavy.
It is truly wonderful!
