This soup is so yummy - it is pure comfort in a bowl. And it's so easy - no need to make a separate grilled cheese sandwich - it's all in there!
Fangboner Farms Tomato and Cheese Soup
- 4 tomatoes, halved and cored
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 1 small red onion, chopped
- 2 teaspoons Fangboner Farms Classic Blend
- 2 cups chicken broth
- One 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cups grated sharp Cheddar
- Croutons if desired
Directions Preheat the broiler. Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the tomatoes on the prepared sheet pan and broil until charred, 4 minutes. Add the oil to a large pot set over high heat. Saute the garlic, onions and Fangboner Farms Classic Blend. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the broiled tomatoes to the pot and mix into the sauteed onion mixture.
Break up the tomatoes with the mixing spoon so they cook evenly. Add the broth and canned tomatoes to the pot. Season with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle the cheese, reserving 2 tablespoons for garnish, into the soup. Use an immersion blender to blend the soup until fairly smooth (the little chunks add nice texture).
Simmer the soup on low for 5 minutes. Serve and top with croutons and the reserved cheese. YUM!
