HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP WITHOUT YOUR MOTHER"S CROUTONS

(Image from Google)

I love soup and enjoy making my own
in my kitchen. If you were to ask me
which soup you could eat everyday I will
said with no hesitation, Homemade Tomato Soup
but sometimes soup is not enough to satisfy our tummies
so is good to add another element that is unexpected.
In this case it will be my homemade croutons with yellow squash.
HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP WITHOUT YOUR MOTHER"S CROUTONS
I did my crouton with yellow squash, 
instead of the well known bread croutons
 nothing wrong with it, is just that I like adding
healthy element to my food.



HERE ARE THE INGREDIENTS

1 Can of 28 ounce Dice Tomatoes
1 Small Onion Chopped 
1 Clove of Garlic Minced

add Chopped Onions and Minced Garlic sauteed
until translucent, add 1 teaspoon of Oregano
 1/2 teaspoon of Sea Salt and Fresh
ground pepper, pour 1/4 cup Chicken or Veggie broth
Finally add the Dice Tomatoes and 1 Bay leaf
 let it simmer
for 25 minutes

Let it cool remove the bay leaf
add in batches to a Food Processor or Blender
Blend until smooth add back to the pot
keep warm until ready to serve.

  42. Tomato soup reminds me of my elementary school days in New York... we would often have tomato soup and peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwich for lunch...delicious! Coming from Italy I had never heard of peanut butter at that time!

  51. I make tomato soup all the time, it's my husband's favorite! But why use canned tomatoes when you can easily make it from fresh ones within less than 25 minutes? ;)

    1. Is a smoother texture and less seeds to deal with, also is cold weather here in the U.S..the tomato is not in season you wont have the best taste. The peak season is from June to September we are in February. Same concept if you want to use fresh tomatoes.from your country.
