Tomato Soup: From Ordinary to Extraordinary

The STAR Ingredient

A couple of nights ago, we decided to pick up a few Vietnamese sandwiches from our local Asian Market around the way. Hubby thought the gloomy, raining weather deserved a nice bowl of soup to accompany the sammies. After poking around in the pantry, he pulled out a family size can of tomato soup. Little did I know he was going to turn this average, almost Spaghetti-O flavored soup into a gourmet concoction using simple ingredients we had on hand. The end result looked something like this…


I just grabbed the closest photo that resembled what we indulged in the other night off of Google images. Seriously, if this soup didn’t make an impression on me, I wouldn’ t give it real estate on my blog. But I decided to share since it was so easy, comforting and delicious. I had the leftover soup for lunch yesterday and it was SO good. You bet I’ll be stocking up on these cans of soup! Nice work, honey!


Start with a can of tomato soup in a sauce pan on medium heat – any brand of soup will do, but we used Campbell’s. Add a can of water, as the directions ask you to do. Add in your choice of Italian herbs. Add 2-3 tablespoons of heavy cream. When serving, top the soup with croutons and add shredded parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
