Roasted tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich is one of the comfort meals for me...and probably many others. I try to keep the soup healthy, not adding any cream and using organic tomatoes, but non-organic are just fine too.
For the grilled cheese, I offer variations for fillings so you can mix it up a little bit.
Rub tomatoes and garlic with olive oil. Place tomatoes, skin side down, and garlic on a cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 45 minutes until tomatoes begin to fall. Remove and set aside.
Note: For last minute changes or additions - If you want to add more tomato, you can add a can of stewed tomatoes before or after you blend. You can also add 1/4 cup of heavy cream for a creamier soup. And, to sweeten it up slightly, add about 2 tablespoons of honey.
1. add cooked bacon, chopped tomatoes and avocado
2. add turkey slices and pesto sauce (my personal favorite)
