Yummy Soup for the soul!

So it is the end of the last week before the last week of school. Man okay I am ready to graduate. We got our yearbooks today, its sad a whole year of my life has pasted and it was filled with amazing moments and awesome times with friends, but time has gone by so very fast. But a great time to sit back and reflect on my memories. Some Tomato Basil Soup.

It's delicious! I hope lol. It is cooking as I write.

Here are the ingredients and directions Grab a friend cook it up and reflect on the past. <3 

  • 2 lbs fresh ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup Half & Half
In a heavy saucepan heat the olive oil over medium low heat.  Saute the onions for about 5-6 minutes until translucent.  Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute more.  Add in the tomatoes and cook on medium low heat for about 5 minutes.  Add the white wine, vegetable stock, and Italian seasoning and stir til combined.  Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and let simmer for 20-30 minutes until the soup has reduced by 1/4-1/3.  Remove from heat and in small batches add the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth.  Return to pot and add the Half & Half off of the heat.  Stir thoroughly.  Serve immediately.
