Tomato soup Ingredients:
How to make the tomato soup:
Pour one jar of Jar Goods Classic Vodka sauce into a deep saucepan. Add most of the chicken or vegetable stock, keeping a little back to pour into the jar to make sure you get every last drop of yummy vodka sauce flavor. Simmer the soup on a low heat until piping hot, about 3-5 minutes. Add cream at the last minute.
To make the tomato soup extra velvety, use an immersion blender.
Grilled cheese ingredients:
Butter the 2 slices of bread and place butter side down on a heated nonstick pan. Place 2 slices of cheese on each slice of bread. Top each with the remaining bread and spread butter on the top.
After 2-3 minutes, when the underside is nicely browned, flip both and leave for a further 2 minutes until cheese is melted. Transfer to a board and cut into 1” squares, removing any hard crusts.
Pour the tomato soup between 4 bowls and top with grilled cheese croutons. Salt and pepper to taste. If you are feeling fancy, add a little fresh basil and fresh tomatoes as garnish.
There you have it. A homemade tomato soup recipe made from tomato sauce.
