Homemade Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato Basil soup and grilled cheese are at the top of my best-of list.  Soup is a perfect dish for winter and when I found this recipe for Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup on Pinterest from Cafe Delites, I wanted to give it a try.


First, I always wash my vegetables with Thieves fruit and vegetable spray.  It’s all natural, filled with essential oils and smells amazing.  It’s really important to clean your vegetables thoroughly before you slice or eat them.

You roast the tomatoes and garlic in the oven first and it makes the house smell heavenly.


For step four I don’t have an immersion blender, so I ladled the soup in batches into my food processor to make it creamy.  I think you really need to blend the soup because otherwise you might be overwhelmed by the skins from the tomatoes.  It brought the ingredients to a creamier state perfect for dipping your sandwich.

For my grilled cheese I always use English toasting bread from the bakery and extra sharp cheddar cheese I slice from the block.  It just oozes deliciousness.

Plate it all up on the cutest soup and sandwich set from Sur la Table.  And, since the soup is red why not serve it for your Valentine on Wednesday!

    1. Hi Debbie! Thank you so much for reading my blog. My local grocery store carries homemade bread in the bakery section. I always look for either Sourdough or English toasting bread. Let me know what you find!
