My little Miles is getting tubes in his ears this morning. For the last six months he has had ear infection after infection. We’ve been to the doctor’s over and over, he’s been on antibiotic after antibiotic and nothing has worked. The dang ear infection kept coming back. He went from being my happiest little guy to Mr. Grumpy, and he hasn’t slept good at night in months (another reason he has been grumpy–and so have I). Just kidding. I’ve just felt so bad for the little guy.
He hasn’t been a good eater either, but every once and a while I make something he’ll actually eat, he likes it, and eats it like he’s never eaten before.
Like this soup. He couldn’t get enough.
Creamy Tomato Soup made in five minutes (maybe even less)!!
The other day while making them grilled cheese sandwiches, I got the craving for one too, with a bowl of tomato soup. Maybe it’s nostalgic for me, maybe it’s the pregnancy, but there’s something so comforting about dipping a hot grilled cheese sandwich in a warm bowl of plain old tomato soup. It was like my favorite thing to eat as a kid! And I need it.
I didn’t have a can of Campbell’s tomato soup so I took a can of diced tomatoes, added some milk , basil, garlic and salt and pepper blended it all up! It was perfect! My kids had never even had a grilled cheese with tomato soup (I was depriving them of my childhood favorite!). I wash shocked how much they liked it, and dipping their sandwiches in it of course. Miles liked the soup so much I had to make a second batch. He kept saying “mo soup, mo soup.” You got it dude.
It’s the easiest soup you’ll make, ever! Enjoy!
- 1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes (Italian Style diced tomatoes are good too!)
- 1/2 cup whole or 2% milk
- 1/2 tbsp minced basil or basil paste
- 1/4 tsp garlic salt
- salt and pepper to taste
- Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat to warm soup.
- *If your blender has a soup setting you can set it the soup setting and blend until ready. It should be nice and warm too!
