This is from a vegetarian slow-cooker recipe book I have. It's tomato soup with a great twist! Filling, tasty, and perfect for cold days. Serve alone, with salad, or grilled cheese! Last time I made it, I did not have bay leaves or basil. Instead, I added Italian seasoning before pureeing the soup. This is a soup that is easy to adjust depending on what kinds of seasonings you have on hand.

Kitchen Crew @JustaPinch

Pairing soups and wine can be tricky. Besides there being many types of soup (stews, chowder, broth-based, etc.), soups are liquid and pairing liquid with liquid is strange. In reality,...
