Easy Tomato Soup

The temperature is dropping and when my bones start to chill the first thing I reach for is a hot bowl of tomato soup. This is a great recipe that uses the spices and flavors in a bottled tomato sauce and mixes is up with canned broth to make a satisfying (better than canned) soup. While this is simmering you can add more flavors like bay leaf and dried Italian herbs for an herbal quality, sugar and chili flakes for a little sweet and spicy and finally balsamic vinegar to boost the tomato flavors. A little drop of heavy cream is added to lighten and enrich the texture and flavor of the soup.

Garnish this soup with your choice of cooked rice or pasta, chopped jalapeño and avocado, chopped tomato, green onion, blue cheese, parmesan, cheddar cheese, sour cream, bacon or chopped basil for an extra special kick!
