Tomato Soup

Some tomato sauce is so good that you almost want to eat it straight from the jar, and when you make that tomato sauce into a soup, this is the soup you get. It’s a study in the power of fresh, wholesome ingredients: if you’ve never tried tomato soup that didn’t come out of a can, you owe yourself the pleasure of a big steaming bowl fresh off the stovetop.

This is a perfect food when there’s a cold going around; the bone broth makes it easy on the stomach and it’s very nutritious thanks to all the tomatoes. And don’t skimp on the fresh basil, either; it really adds a flavor that you just can’t get from the dried spice.

Try this as a side for some other traditional “comfort food” dinner like roast beef or butterflied chicken. Or for a lighter lunch, why not have a bowl of tomato soup with some chicken salad. It even works just as well with a fancier dinner like veal. Alternately, just snack on a bowl by itself – maybe with a sprinkle of bacon or cracklings on top to really bring out the flavor.
