Tomato Soup + Grilled Cheese

Snowy days call for cozy meals, and theres nothing more cozy than this Perfect Pair

Quick, Easy & Yummy!

My go to “Tomato Soup”  is my Mother-in law’s famous 5-ingredient recipe, affectionally known as “Nonny Soup” (Grandmother in Italian).

This vegan soup is the quickest, easiest and most crowd pleasing ever! It’s made with 5 basic ingredients plus olive oil & seasonings.   Sometimes we puree it a lot, sometimes a little, sometimes not at all.  Sometimes we eat it as it, other times we add gluten-free ditalini pasta to it. My husband likes it garnished with corn. It’s delicious all ways!

The perfect pairing is a simple grilled cheese with our favorite Gluten-free Schar Artisan Baker White Bread to complete the meal. We love Schar breads because they are Certified Gluten-Free, non-GMO, dairy-free, preservative free and they are really soft and yummy!

Ingredients
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion or approximately 2 cups, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup water (approximately)
  • 1 750 g (26.46 oz) box Pomi strained or crushed tomatoes
  • 2 15oz cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¾ to 1 tsp salt, depending on tastes
Instructions
  1. In a medium sauce pan, heat 2 tbsp olive oil
  2. Add onion, carrots and celery and saute until soft, onions will be translucent, approximately 10-15 minutes. You can't over cook the veggies in this soup, the softer they are, the more flavorful they are
  3. Add garlic powder, salt and pepper and stir in well.
  4. Add beans, strained tomatoes and water, and stir well (you may need to add more water if it seems too thick)
  5. Let simmer on low heat for at least 20 minutes.
  6. If desired, use a hand blender directly in the sauce pan and puree the soup (that is the way my son loves it)
  7. Serve as is or separately prepare gluten free ditalini (small pastas, we like Le Veneziane gluten-free ditalini)
  8. If serving with ditalini, put a large scoop of ditalini in each bowl, followed by the soup
