How to Make Tomato Basil Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2Chop tomatoes into thirds. Put on a cookie sheet, along with garlic, onion, and shallot. Roast for about 20 minutes.
  • 3Remove veggies from the oven. Place in a large sauce pan, add diced tomatoes, basil, parsley, chicken stock, milk and half & half.
  • 4Using an immersion blender, blend mixture until it is nearly smooth. I left mine a little "pulpy" if you will because I wanted some texture, but you can blend it as much as you would like. Once blended, turn heat to about medium, add spices, stir and bring to a boil. Turn heat down to low and let simmer for 20 minutes.
  • 5While soup is simmering, prepare croutons. Layer bread slices with cheese, then cut into tiny squares. Bake for 10 minutes until cheese is melted and bread is crispy
