So last night I'm making tomato soup, and decide to experiment.

I throw in some sweet basil, black pepper, a little Parmesan, grate some Vermont cheddar, and top it off with a dash or two of cayenne. Let it boil for about 10 minutes, came back and....DELICIOUS!

I'm guessing there are other ways to spice up tomato soup, or other plain soups. Share your recipes!

cayenne, sour cream, and shaved cheddar, sink in some croutons right before eating. All you know and all you need know.

From Giada De Lacleavage. She has a few very tasty tomato soup recipes, I like this one.

Disclaimer: Condensed, canned tomato soup is not involved.



Hearty Tomato Soup with Lemon and Rosemary
Giada de Laurentiis

* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1 onion, peeled and chopped
* 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
* 2 cloves garlic, chopped
* 1 15-ounce can cannellini (white) beans, drained and rinsed
* 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
* 3 cups chicken broth
* 1 bay leaf
* 1 sprig of fresh rosemary, plus 1 teaspoon, minced
* 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
* 3/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* 2/3 cup creme fraiche
* Zest of one lemon

In a large soup pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrots, and garlic and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 4 minutes. Add the beans, tomatoes, broth, bay leaf, 1 teaspoon rosemary, and red pepper flakes. Bring the soup to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, covered.

Puree the soup in a blender in batches, being careful to remove and discard the bay leaf. Return the soup to a soup pot and keep warm over low heat. Season with salt and pepper.

In a medium bowl fold in the lemon zest and the remaining teaspoon of rosemary to 2/3 cup creme fraiche. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls and dollop each bowl with the lemon rosemary creme fraiche. Serve immediately.

Sounds a lot like the tomato soup they serve at Nearly Famous here in Springfeld, minus the cheddar. OMG, it's good.

A few years ago I used a baked tomato soup recipe but I can't seem to find the damn thing now.

All I can remember at this point is putting brown sugar and bourbon on fresh tomato halves and baking them. Process the tomatoes after about an hour and add to some other shit that I've forgotten.

Cambell's Tomato (I like water over milk, but milk is good too) and grilled cheese. Wish I could tell you how to make it better, but if it became better the earth would spin off it's axis.

The sandwich you dip can change, pretty much any sandwich and tomato soup works, but you really can't improve on the soup. Sometimes I do add a little black pepper, but it's not really making all that much of a difference when you are that close to perfection.

Campbell's Tomato Soup, add some water (I like mine a little more watered down)

And a shit ton of grilled cheese sandwiches to dip them in. Thats all I need folks.

I'm somewhat surprised but the love for old school Campbell's tomato soup in this thread. Some of their variants are solid enough but the basic one leans close to fairly shitty.

I could make that my cheat day. That plus the soup (which I have to add parmesan to) would be almost 900 calories for one meal. I usually eat 1200 calories per day on a normal day. I have to stick to that, because, if I don't, I'll gain. It sounds soooo good, though. Definitely on my cheat day. :)

Add beans for protein, add veggies (celery, carrots, spinach, etc.) and get rid of the cheese.

I see your turtle always moving so you're obviously doing right, but I hate your concept of cheat days if it means you cant even have a damn grilled cheese sammich on normal days.

Low fat cheese and wheat bread would really push it that high?

I had a pita last night from this cheapy chain called Pita Pit. They love to push the healthy stuff, and on their website you can build your dream pita and it calculates the calories. I get a meditteranean chicken, romaine lettuce, onions, pickles, tomatoes, feta cheese and their spicy vinagrette. On a fluke I decided to enter in my pita to see how much it would cost my diet, and it is one of the most fattening pitas they have. (the feta cheese and vinagrette) Only way I could have made it worse is if I dumped a vat of gravy all over it. Something close to 1000 calories.

So it's all I ate yesterday. That and some hot chocolate. Watching calories sucks donkey balls. Had I remained ignorant, I probably would have munched all night long.

I just got back into tomato soup, grilled cheese a couple weeks ago.

I grew up with good ole Campbells (sp?), so that's my preference, doesn't need anything more than water and milk. Its probably the only food I don't doctor with extra spices.

And I started using 2% cheese to cut out some of the fat. Not much, but some.

Pita pit is superb "drunk food". The one near the bars I frequent is open until 4am. :D

Try the chicken souvlaki or if you want to go veggie the falafel pita isn't bad.

The chicken souvlaki I get on a wheat pita with feta, lettuce, tomato, pickle, olive, onion, cucumber and banana/jalapeno peppers with tzatziki sauce is only 545 calories, has 31g of protein. Higher in fat that I'd like and WAY overload on sodium - but compared to other "takeout" food it's not terrible.

The falafel is about the same except half the protein, less than half the fat and less sodium.

I don't know what I did last night, but now my pita is coming up 690.

Fuck. I could have ate 2.

My vinagrette crushes your tzatiki with it's fat. 1759 in sodium... You will pry my vinagrette out of my cold dead hands.

Yeah I was wondering how you got to 900-1000. The vinaigrette seems to be your downfall. I love tzatzkiki though.. Pita Pit is near the bars but where I live is a little place called Little Greek where I down chicken gyros on some weekend mornings and they are wonderfully overzealous in the amount of tzatziki in the gyro. :)

The last time we went (We go as often as I can find coupons on the backs of my Fareway receipts :p) he got the Philly Cheesesteak. Which was really good but so boring. You can't add much to a Philly without fucking it up. The Buffalo Chicken was so much better.

I'm itching to try their breakfast pitas, but pita just isn't something I usually crave at 7 in the morning. Unless I haven't been to bed yet.

2 Jugs of v8 (I use V8 spicy)
1 head of cabbage
1 can of corn
1 can of green beans
3-5 Stalks of celery
3-5 big carrots
2 small cans of diced tomatoes
2 chicken bouillon cubes
As much pepper as you want
And whatever other vegetables you want to put in it.

Put all of it in a big ole pot (you should probably add enough water to fill the pot the rest of the way up) and bring it to a boil. Then let it simmer a few hours. Makes enough to last a week.
