Easiest Goat Cheese Tomato Soup

20 Apr

I really needed something to calm my stomach, and get me back in working order. Rafe left on Thurs to go visit his parents in SC, and I was solo for the weekend (read also, “hadn’t gone to the grocery since he left”)… But I did have a bunch of random ingredients that go into tomato soup! I also managed to have honey goat cheese on hand, which was basically like crack to me. You could also add some pasta into the soup as well, to make it more of a tomato noodle soup. Basically, this soup was the easiest thing I’ve made recently.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 can (28 oz) whole San Marzano tomatoes (the can I used had basil in it as well)
  • pinch sugar
  • 1.5 c chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp dry Italian herbs (or use fresh if you have em)
  • 3/4 c whole milk (2% or skim would probably work as well)
  • heavenly goat cheese (honey chevre was a plus)
Instructions
  • Heat olive oil in pot over medium heat. Once warm, add onions and saute until glassy. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • Add tomatoes, sugar, stock, and spices. Cook for ~15 min.
  • Blend soup (in batches if you need to) in a blender on medium so that the onion bits get smoother. Transfer back to pot on low heat. Add milk and stir.
  • When serving, add a spoon of goat cheese into the bowl, so that the taste of the goat cheese is distinctive as you eat it.
